take time to say "thanks" & "i love you" & "_______"

today i am feeling thankful.

thank you all for such strong support after my last post--- you'll be happy to know i am busy working on the illustrated version of that beloved image... it'll be smaller, but it'll be just as powerful.

i am thankful for a place where i can post a message like that, and know i am reaching others.

i'm thankful for the sweet little red-headed, 4-legged boy scrunched up next to me as i type--- he had such a large shepherd spaced hole in my heart to try to fill, and he's done his work admirably.

i'm thankful for a good night's sleep. for online friends. for children who listen. for art museums. for really good french bread. for cupcakes. for BEAUTIFUL fall weather. for the love of my life. for the walk i'm about to go on. for soft soft yarn. for the super yummy pizza we had last night after our doggie date (with the two cutest doxie puppies ever!... next to mason). for the rush of getting ready for a show. for the "i don't like it, but i want to like it" feeling that settles over me when i'm not sure what's going to happen next. for pigeons. for the beach. for big cities. for friendliness. for good manners. for freshly polished toes (i think mine are pretty cute, i must say). for the "star" shape. for the color blue. for knowing a good friend is very happy. and on that note--- for good friends.

today is the birthday of my beautiful sister, Ashley, and one of my dearest friends, Alecia. Who now, serendipitously, both live in suburbs of Boston. And i am thankful that they know each other and can look out for one another. and today, i am thankful thinking of them. i love you both!

take the time today to tell someone you love just how you feel. You can send them one of these cards...

"best wishes"

"hang in there" cards

...or, post your comment below.
i love you.

We got a mention in your blog!? Merlot feels so special right now. She just licked the computer screen to say, "I love you dana!"
