Blessings


Today is Sunday...and I have not posted here since Tuesday....I am accustomed to doing my affirmations every day, but things change, situations change and thoughts change. Some are good...some are not so good! My studio space is full...I have projects looming in front of me to complete within the next few days...I have been sharing my space daily with my good husband which is throwing me a little out of whack! I have had highs this weeks and lows...all which cause one to get a little out of balance, to think and rethink...and then think some more! It makes me spin around and around with what I do, why I do it...and how I do it!! But today was a different day...It was a new day...It is the beginning of a day that makes me COUNT MY BLESSINGS! Here I sit this morning in this strange setting with someone else in my space...in this setting where I have so much work to do that I do not often know where to start and where to end...in this space where I create and dream and cry and laugh...In this space where I see the fruits of my labor and where I plant my seeds. In this space where I COUNT MY BLESSINGS...Today I am so aware of them as I get into my paint, my paper ... my joy and dreams. Today I believe in them and know that if I do not honor them I will be but a shell of who I really am. It would be a step backwards...So today, I COUNT MY BLESSINGS ...I am so aware of the love, the support, the belief in me and for me...Today, I am aware that this week was about learning that...seeing that..and growing with that! So that is my wish for you today....If you too find yourself thinking and rethinking what it is that you do and why....sit for a moment..for a day...for a week and see what it feels like NOT to do it...and you will be COUNTING YOUR BLESSINGS when you allow yourself to get back into the swing of things. I certainly am...
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

YES! As I read your beautiful and heartfelt post, I thought of one of my favorite Elton John songs 'You Be Blessed'...why is it so easy to forget all that we can be grateful for!?!

For example, earlier today I had a phone chat with a wonderful, talented and enlightened friend. The call set a happy and positive tone for the rest of my day! How lucky to have friends that do that!!!
