Today is Day 22 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at Two Writing Teachers.
U is for Umbrella
Whenever I think of umbrellas now, the first image that comes to mind is a yellow umbrella. And it reminds me of Amy Krouse Rosenthal and her inspiring words and works.
I have read her wonderful picture books for years. But this week I read and reread many of her books:
I Wish You More
Plant a Kiss
That’s Me Loving You
I’ve also been watching her videos:
The Lovely Beckoning
The Money tree
Seven Notes on Life
All were so inspiring.
“I Wish You more” inspires us to be more, give more, think more, connect more.
She encourages us to invite the lovely into our lives, to make something beautiful.
On her birthday, April 29, everyone is encouraged to do “#More _”. What a wonderful gift/tribute to Amy and the world.
“We need to beckon enough lovely to save the world.”
