National Ice Cream Day

Donut Ice Cream Sandwich, yellow and white summer flowers

Sunny Sunday morn

Purple cotton candy drips

Giggling like a child

I watch a balloon artist

Create happiness with air

This morning I spontaneously decided to be a kid again as I read a post saying our local ice cream shop was giving away ice cream sandwiches to celebrate “National Ice Cream Day”.

And not just any ice cream sandwiches! These were specially created from our local donut shop! A fresh donut ice cream sandwich! Wow! Just the pick me up I needed to start the day I thought!

So instead of lounging on my comfy couch this morning, I got up, and went out to greet the day and was pleasantly rewarded!

I love summer, ice cream, donuts and balloons! And it was nice to be a kid again! 😊

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Psalm 127:3 NKJV
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
