my girl gloria has handed me a little “i am grateful” reminder.
i love those for sure! so many days, i allow the world and what
it hands me, to turn up the “moody”. it is monday and it is gonna
be crazy . busy and i am determined to make it all good. as i looked
over gloria’s list – so many things bounced around in the noggin
flashing signs of being nothing but the goodness that fills my life.
1. a friday nite with bryce. the run to lafayette that included a stop
at the smokehouse. bbq that made me smile, such a quirky little
place, a new fav. then off to barnes and noble where i got to
see this book on the shelf, skimming the pages of somerset studio
and keeping my fingers crossed. i love getting to walk in that joint
knowing that i get to see my friends shine and hopes for my
own creative path.
2. my time at our athens gallery and art studio’s, this months
featured artist and his rebar art, simply shines. mike is an
amazing artist and quite the personality. he is also stepping
up and working hard for the gallery. you have got to love those
who give more than expected.
3. a weekend with my three pixie’s who i love and adore. our
time was filled with plenty of family, laughs and a few silly
moments of black horn rimmed glasses and watching our
6’3″ gabe shoving his way onto his older sisters lap in the
car for a ride to aunt mary’s gazebo on the pond. where we
shoved 40 some people on in for an easter gathering.
a meltdown of one chickadee, but plenty of family to
step in and give me a break. i am working so hard to
be patient with gabe and clancy right now. having a dad
who is so ill can be an emotional ride, but watching these
two get through it makes me one proud mama.
4. and even though i am a bit behind, i feel happy knowing
that i can dig out and continue to move and grow. because
that is what we are each doing, everyday. especially on
that monday when we are worn out, wishing we had
sunday back so we could sip coffee all day and nap on
the couch while the old movies play in the background.
so….i know you are grateful. how about telling me about
