Each and every day, I make a point of acknowledging the things I am thankful for. Some days, I shake my head in awe of my blessings ~ even when things are difficult. Even when life throws me a curve ball that knocks the breath out of me, my blessings are still apparent...
From the best seat in the house ~
...and in good company, I might add ~
I revisit my journey...my unexpected blessing ~
My humbleness and gratitude are immense ~
Honored with the support of old friends ~
best friends ~
...and the love of my family (my sons were at the opening but weren't in the photos...sneaky dogs) ~
I realized a secret dream, a little life goal that came true. Something magical and spectacular...
Each day is magical and spectacular. I never lose sight of that. I look closely to find natures art ~
Confetti pinks ~
Stunning coral...alive in the desert ~
Late blooming Cosmos, already offering seed for next year ~
...and peek-a-boo yellows and warm oranges, hinting at the on-coming Autumn ~
Everyday blessings. I remind myself to notice, to look, to smell.
Special days are sweet and meeting a goal is grand...BUT, look deep, because Everyday is sweet and grand.
Until Next Time:

P.S. There were some friends that drove a long way and were accidentally not included in any photos. You know who you are and I am so thankful for your support. And to Amanda...a new generation of art lover...thank you for coming with your mom and thank you for your sweetness.
