A Crayola Bomb....

"Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with their imagination."
~Robert Fulghum

I found this quote today and I love it! Maybe it is the kindergarten teacher in me, but I still get excited over a brand-new box of Crayola Crayons....I can close my eyes and even remember the smell!!

That's so sweet. I love that quote. I don't know how anyone with kids wouldn't.
