Gifting

 In My Blogs

Holidays! Regardless of which one we are celebrating, they bring people together. This a gift in itself. Sure, we focus our attention on some cause which Hallmark does a great job of endorsing, but it is the togetherness that is the gift of the moment.

And speaking of moments, please click here. This is a gift which will bring heightened pleasure to all holiday experiences.

Whatever your preferred celebration, savor the memories you are making. Here is one of mine: the apple tree outside my studio window in spring. It will be the last time I have this view because I am moving. Not far. But to a larger studio and teaching space hoping to share the gifts of creativity which we all have.

    Yikes!!!
    Not the time to think about giving up things…. as I am struggling (2days after a difficult eye surgery) with the thought of seeing things in a new normal (normal for me) fashion

    Giving up being impatient is also not easy right now.

    I tend to be a carefree, open, non-judgemental type of person. Being dependent on others is not me & is not comfortable when it happens thru no choice of my own.

    Time will tell how much more my patience level will have to grow.

    I know nothing happens by accident and this email article serves to make us aware & better us. I should be thanking you but I am too raw right now. Give me a week, or three. It will come, I will thank you. I am sure of it. 😕

      Hoping patience returns to you swiftly, smile. Remembering that it is a gift to others who wish to help you, oh independent, carefree person – might help???
