My art and writing are two channels I use to express gratitude for all the goodness in my life.  Being creative requires me to step out of my comfort zone and explore new avenues.  When I write and paint from the heart, everything makes sense.  I am grateful for the opportunity to share my joy with you.

Just Five Things

img_3439 On this beautiful and crisp October morning I am thankful for...

  1. The small mementos around the house that remind me of my daughters' childhoods.
  2. The cool breeze coming through the opened window, invigorating me.
  3. My legs toasty warm, curled beneath the soft red afghan draped across my lap.
  4. The morning quiet.
  5. The cup of hot peppermint tea, soothing my achy stomach.  (It's stomach bug time again!)

My lovely teacher and friend, Michelle GD, is having a giveaway!  She will be running one of my favorite classes, Just Five Things, from November 7 - 20 and this week she is giving away two spots in the class.  I have taken the course multiple times and each time I come away amazed at how such a simple concept...to stop three times a day and just notice the world around me...provides me with such insight.  At the end of the two weeks I feel grounded and renewed.
