Today is Alyson Stanfield’s Birthday. http://www.artbizblog.com/
And with her wishlist she is actually giving gifts. A list of 8 simple things to do that will brighten your day. One item on the to do list: think of five things that you are grateful for today. And you know, it was not hard to come up with those five so I am thinking that I am pretty lucky. So, here goes:
1 I am grateful that I am safe and warm inside while the snow keeps piling up outside.
2 I am grateful that I have the ability to produce my Art and can continue to make people happy with that.
3 I am really grateful to have a supportive family and friends, without them life would be just awful.
4 I am grateful for the small things in life, birds in the Garden, a flower from my soon to be daughter in law, oranges (sunshine) that my neighbor brought back from Florida, the Art postcards from a friend.
5 And I am grateful that I am able to still do the things that are necessary, that my body is healthy enough to shovel snow, organize the tool shed, paint the walls in my Studio, things that some of my friends are no longer able to do.
Thank you Alyson, yes, I did smile at least five times to myself while I was writing this.
