I have so many things to be thankful for. I'm thankful for this love for painting that I had nothing to do with acquiring, that has fueled my soul since childhood. I'm thankful for all the people I've run into this year who have aided, inspired and supported my efforts.
I'm thankful for the people who've been placed in my life from my sister who taught me to never give up on my dreams, to my mother who just celebrated her 100th birthday!, to my husband who makes it possible for me to pursue a life in art.I'm thankful for all my family, those I've come from and those unfolding the newest generation.
I'm thankful for the people who have appeared in answer to spiritual quests making life so much fuller. I'm thankful for the example of compassion, patience and keeping priorities straight of the young woman who helps me care for my mom.
For so many things large and small that drop unexpected gifts into daily life, I'm thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving !
