My Gratitude List

November 24, 2010

Filed in: Uncategorized

This is one of my collages from my Collage a Day series, You can read more about these here:Collage A Day

Well folks, I had a blog written for today…..had worked about an hour on it, all filled with gratitude and fru fru fluffy stuff for the holidays, but……after I walked away before hitting publish and came back to it….I HATED IT. It was strange, because I pretty much feel that HATE is one of those words I choose to use only on special occasions…..but there it is….I HATED IT. Here, you get the one I was meant to write…..the one I LOVE!


In this moment, regardless of what chaos surrounds me, 
LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!
In this moment, regardless of my self doubt, I choose to
FEEL LOVED.
In this moment, regardless of my pain, 
JOY TRUMPS IT!
In this moment, regardless of my fears, 
GRATITUDE CREATES CALM!


And because I know the edgier side of my personality longs for some face time:

Life is short – make another pile!  (That’s a nod for all of you, like me, who have piles around your house that seem to be growing their own personalities and becoming family members)


Happy Thanksgiving dear ones…..I LOVE YOU, love your support, love your comments, love the fact that little ol me is able to share my art with all of you! ((((((((Turkey Hugs))))))))))))
