I just realized as I was choosing photos for this post that I chose three water shots and wanted to choose more....hmmm.......imagine that....

Ok....I love surprises....all kinds...the little ones, the whoppers and especially the surprises of life. I do a lot of planning, I spend time on it, make it work out, juggle the pieces and often I like things to go according to my hard conceived plan.....however...they don't or they do....point being...you can only plan so much. Sometimes I need reminding. And when I finally relax and go with the flow....well, even if great things don't happen, I'm happy.

precious and wonderful.
And while I'm sort of on the subject....books....my biggest fear is that I'll never get to read all the books I want to read. All of it. Stop for a second and think of the things you know because you have been reading. Give someone a book for Xmas. It's time, adventure, and an education all in one nice package. And also, if possible, buy it locally. There are still bookstores! I love them and always will. Go lose yourself in one of them. Yet another great adventure for a Sunday.

What a gift to be able to share in someone else's creativity. To have a bit in your home, wear a bit on your body, see it in a museum or gallery, hear it through speakers or in a park concert.....it's all around us. What joy!!!
I'm grateful I can appreciate art....all of it!

Ok....so today I have been thinking about Faith. Could mean religion, could mean trust in someone, or in a process. I'm grateful for my continued faith in humanity and the people around me, for the people that have faith in me, for the plunge I take every day....stepping out there, letting go to see where I'm taken; where I'll end up and for the faith to trust that in the end I'm where I'm supposed to be (whether I like it or not), doing what I'm supposed to do and finding a peace in the journey. Call it karma, kismet, luck, fate....whatever your term...it's about letting go.

Ok....so I'm going to take a cue from a friend and use the month of December to express what I'm grateful for. There is a lot....I'm a lucky gal. Let's start with my Mum.
Tina is an amazing woman. I hope someday I grow up to be loving, giving, strong, funny, beautiful and patient just like she is. She is my best friend, my girl friend, the person who knows way too much about me (thank goodness) and a great mother. She doesn't mind when I say, let's just sit and knit or how about a movie....or even let's trek to Lowe's for wood. She's an amazing gardener and cook, but most of all....she takes care of me when I'm down and feeds my soul. I'm truly lucky and grateful for this woman.
