An Unexpected Blessing...

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...

BUT ~

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.

I'm so glad I got to be there at the opening, Kim! I love the way your artwork and the artwork of the other artists melded into such a beautiful show.
