Title: Mixed Blessing
Author: Marsha Cosman
Illustrator: Kyra Kendall


Here we have a story which aims to celebrate mixed raced relationships and children! Did you know that here in the UK, this is the fastest growing ethnic group in recent years? The author who is from the Caribbean and whom is married to a man from Ireland describes a time where she couldn’t find many books on this subject matter to help her son understand his mixed background; and therefore she wrote one! I found it so innocently cute reading the part about mixing ice cream together to illustrate “mixedraceness”! With simple rhyming sentences and clear, crisp illustrations this story can serve as a perfect introduction to conversations surrounding race to little mixed race children if/when parents see this as necessary.

I have such a love-hate relationship with the summer solstice. Exquisite weather and abundance ahead; the days will now grow shorter. #mixedblessings #solstice #glasshalffull #zucchiniwillonlygetbigger

#joelosteen didn’t say it. I did. Remember this when it seems like things *aren’t* going your way but you don’t have all the facts. When your third eye has LASIK your hindsight won’t need to be 20/20. 🙌💯 #facts #missedblessings #mixedblessings #dodgedabullet #hindsight #vision #intuition

Father’s Day ~ Daughters need a dad to be the standard against which they will judge all men. Guardian, provider, protector, friend, teacher, mentor, inspirer....The list goes on. The girls have the most amazing father in my husband 💕
Honestly, I wish I could say the same about my own father who has been a huge upsetting disappointment and struggle for all my life and my husbands father is unfortunately dead and I never met him. Appreciate what you have, remember those who aren’t here and enjoy your day if your all still together 💕 Hug those fathers and gently remind your children how much these wonderful daddy’s do! 😘 #goodmorning #mixedblessings #sundaylove #sundaythoughts #fathersday #fatherdaythoughts #haveagoodday #rosesinmyhome #roses #flowers #flowerstagram #flower_daily

It’s a mixed blessing winning eBay lots for miniatures. In some cases, the modes look decent enough to get a free pass. Case in point - these lads just needed their bases doing.

A painting known as Bachanalian Scene (1862) by #RichardDadd. What bitter cup for the soul, is to be drunk from that chalice? Mixed blessings of ecstacy, mental poison and murder....
The most fascinating of the 'fairy' painters has to be Richard Dadd.While accompanying his patron Sir Thomas Phillips on a trip to Egypt and the Holy Land in 1842, the young artist became unbalanced.Over exposure to the sun was suggested to explain what might have been  schizophrenia.
On his return to England Dadd entered the competition to decorate the new Houses of Parliament but was rejected.In August 1843 he went for a stroll with his father at Cobham Park.It ended when the artist stabbed his father to death while he was urinating .Richard declared: "Go, and tell the great god Osiris that I have done the deed which is to set him free!"
Dadd fled to France, where he attacked a gentleman on a train with a "good English" razor.He was arrested, extradited to Britain and immediately sent to Bethlehem asylum.Later he became one of Broadmore's first inmates.
During the next 40 years of incarceration, Dadd created the hyper-real claustrophobic fairy paintings we know and love so well.He was actually recognised for painting in that genre even before his confinement.Dadd also created more sedate scenes and conventional portraits. It wasn't until the 1930s that his reputation as a great fairy painter was established after The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke was exhibited.

So apparently feeding your leeks a heathy dose of compost at the tail end of their big life cycle makes them bolt and flower straightaway—oh well. #mixedblessings #sunset #gardening #gardeningisfun #leeks #flowering #ilovegardening #baylife #sunrays #evening #lifelessons #thelittlethings #northcoast #goldenhour #livingthelife

Embracing the life I already have doesn't mean not making any changes. On the contrary, if I'm going to #liveintentionally, I've got to #beintentional, with every aspect of my life. I mean, I'm now well into the #fortysomething years. But, even though I #lookyounger than I am, that doesn't mean I want to #dressyounger. I want to be authentic. And not just when it comes to dressing a little more maturely. I want to dress in a way that's authentic to my personality, too. Part of that includes dressing more modestly. After all, about a year ago, I started a journey into dressing more modestly (because one of my #mixedblessings is the fact that I gain my weight in all the right places, so my curves were starting to draw the wrong kind of attention), and, now that I've lost that extra weight and modesty isn't quite the challenge it once was, I don't want to simply abandon all the principles I've been applying. So, I'm buying a few new pieces, but I'm trying to be extremely picky. I've selected a #colorscheme that reflects me, and I'm trying to coordinate my wardrobe so that I get the most #bangformybuck. Which is extra important because I plan to downsize everything we own in a year or two (we're teetering on the edge of an empty nest). #modesty #modestfashion #wardrobeplanning

We don’t like dandelions...but we love bumblebees; birdsong; wolf-willow in bloom. #mixedblessings #fishcreekpark #runlooklistensmell
