Celebrating

Today I am grateful for this:


Celebrating the fact that I am here on this wonderful planet. Loving. Creating. Laughing. Grateful for simple things like having my eyebrows and hair back. Grateful for each breath, each step. SO SO grateful for it all.

"As each day comes to us refreshed and anew, so does my gratitude renew itself daily.  The breaking of the sun over the horizon is my grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world."  ~Terri Guillemets

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures."  ~Thornton Wilder

"Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all. " ~William Faulkner

{ps-i owe bunches of emails. i promise to catch up this week.}

Just had to add that I read your "Artist Statement" on your website and found it so right. Loving collages as we do, it is not a wonder that you are so dear to many. An attraction to the old and used is such and interesting concept that I share with you and my Mom passed that down to me. My Reiki practitioner believes that some of us are sensitive to the remaining energy and history of things that have been previously owned. Maybe...
She also suggested to me that I "smudge" anythings I bring in w/ sage smoke to clear away any energies I may not want. Curiouser and curiouser---I like. xoxox

Relyn said...

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I celebrate with you. God is good.

triciascott said...

thank you! yes, i feel blessed to still be here. xoxo

triciascott said...

thank you, dreama. i agree with what you said about the remaining energy. actually, the book i've been playing with is all about that and as soon as i get it to a good place for sharing i would love if you would give it a read through. i agree with your friend about the smudging. maybe a month or so ago, olivia and i did a smudging of the corners of our house but i have never thought to do it with individual objects. thank you for sharing that. i still have the rest of the stick in the art room and have an old trunk in mind. i loved reading that your mom passed down that love to you. i got a big smile when i read that. i have a feeling she was wonderful like you. hugs to you this chilly night. xoxo
