A Great Day To Paint~

February 24th 2012

Finding serenity in nature
It looks like a great day to paint, a mild breeze blows softly through the many trees surrounding me.  I am in awe of the beauty around me today.  looking out my windows all around me birds are singing, flowers are blooming and life is happening.  I snapped a couple shots of the awesome view.

I started my morning with a great conversation with Kirsten and she asked me a question, she said "Well that was great as usual. Love the positive energy. I think your right when you are only with yourself and you choose to be happy it is possible for it to happen. My question is how do you stay happy when you have people around you that you HAVE to deal with and they bring you down. Then it is very hard to stay positive all the time. Just Saying!"   I thought about it for a second and quickly remembered the lessons tab and my post called "Giving, taking and accepting".  We talked much on this subject and she liked my idea of saying the Serenity Prayer every time she is faced with this dilemma.  If nothing else it will give her time to think before reacting, more so it will give her time to remember that things out of her control are not worth giving up her power over.

Bloomed almost overnight, beautiful!

While she offered me a question she also reminded me to start my day owning my emotions.  Which followed into a conversation with my Sister that led to me calling My Mother. I had been thinking about my Mother all week, this morning especially.  I just spent nearly two hours talking to my Mother, a woman who has tried for 30 years to build a relationship with me that I would not allow out of my own determination to punish myself and her.

Today I am bursting with love for my Mother and grateful she allowed me to spend time on the phone with her laughing and crying together.  I look forward to becoming a better daughter and
making some amends of my own to her, she deserves it and it is long over due.

I got off the phone and noticed this bird in particular signing right outside my window and was blessed to be able to capture a shot of the moment, previous attempts have failed, lol.
Don't worry about a thing, because every little thing
is going to be Alright!

It is a great day to paint, I am going to get ready to begin.  Be back later with some fun paint pictures to share. The birth of One Love Mobile Art Work begins today, soon many hand prints will grow on the Tree that's branches will cover One Love from front to back, side to side, top to bottom.  I am blessed.  Thank you for joining me this morning.  I love you.

Wow, that is all I can say about this moment in my life

As I am getting ready to paint, and listening to my morning playlist the birds seem to be enjoying some Bob Marley, The Beatles, Joseph Arthur and Whitney Housten "I didn't know my own strength" among many other artist I have on my morning playlist.  They are every where and really getting close to me, it's pretty cool. They don't seem to mind me taking some pictures this morning.  They almost seem to be showing off for me today, it is quite a show and I am touched.  Thank you beautiful Birds!

The air is alive with song today, natures song!

I have to say I feel very happy right now and these beautiful birds just seem to be bringing me a message of more happiness to come, I think somehow they know I like them am on a journey in life now.
