Thankful Thursday and beyond...

I would like to be here where this photo was taken however I am not. So I am thankful for where I am at this time. Today is sunny even though we have snow on the ground. I have beautiful Spring daffodils cheering me up even though they are so very confused and many of them are struggling to keep their happy blossoms from being mired in the wet soggy muddy ground.
I am thankful for finding and being a part of this blog community. I am thankful for the many friends I have found and follow and who follow me in this journey. We all share something and support one another no matter what our paths are...artistic mediums...or genres. We are all equal on this blog planet. No one is too old or too young to communicate and share. We support one another and encourage those who are struggling or doubting their abilities. We praise and applaud those who are radiant with success, internal or external. We learn from one another. We share with one another. We teach one another.
It truly is amazing the volume of knowledge and generosity there is here in blog land. People really give and give and give.
I feel so blessed to be a part of this journey in blogging and openly sharing my artistic adventures. It helps me to plan a project and then follow up with making my committments by putting it out there for others to read. The support from others is very helpful. Sometimes just a tiny push is all we need to complete something. Or sometimes just saying something is the impetus for doing something.
I am going to continue this wonderful journey and continue learning every day and continue to pursue my creative pursuits as long as possible.
My most sincere and heartfelt thank you to each of you for being a part of my journey.
Life is good and I am so very fortunate to be part of it.

P.S. What do you like about blogging?

  1. One of the things I like about blogging is connecting with people like you. This is a lovely post and I'm so happy we can visit each other's Blogs, enjoy our words and art.

    Blogging, for me, has been one of the most positive experiences that enhances my art life so much. It is a huge part of what I love to do.

    Thank you!

  4. Hello Sweet Friend,

    I couldn't agree with you more about blogging. I have learned so much, met so many lovely ladies, been inspired beyond my wildest imagination. I'm in awe of the talent that so many women have and their willingness to share.

    The think the thing I love the most is the connections I've made and how these women come together when there is a blogger in need. Truly wonderful.

    I'm thrilled our paths crossed in this lovely land of blog.

    Big hugs,
    Karyn

  7. I couldn't agree more. The generosity, kindness, creativity and support of people who share this earth is by far the best part of blogging. And the reinforcement that in spite of all the bad news we get bombarded with each day, the good outweighs the bad - in humanity, in news, in life, if we choose to see it. Thanks Sherry!!
