Please don’t feed the fears.

Instead, nourish your spirit

With thanks, joy and love.

5 things I am grateful for :

1.My cozy house.

2.My Husband.

3.My family and friends.

4. My eyes, hands, heart, lungs, body that lets me travel this sweet journey.

5. The colors of this cold Fall day.

*********************

This week has flown by !

I returned home from Quebec on Tuesday and the laundry, household tasks and time change adjustment seem to have stolen the days.

I was happy to take some creative time this morning and create a cool new doodle page on a piece of blotter paper, and a new, precious Rock Being.

Isn’t she lovely in the Fall light ?

She even has some luscious permanent gold ink detail on her done with gold India Ink and a dip pen.

She will be in the Etsy shop tomorrow if anyone needs her sweet Rock Being energy for themselves.

I have been enjoying reading many posts on Facebook and on some great blogs about gratitude.

T’is the month for it here in the US, right ?

I have been rediscovering how much gratitude helps in times of worry, uncertainty and chaos.

When the waves of scary stuff build, plunging into a list of what is right, what I am grateful for, what is truly okay right in this minute,

really does allow the wave to break over me but not knock me over completely.

I am able to keep swimming and even find lots to be joyous about !

So I’m working on keeping to that place of nourishing gratitude.

How about you, Beautiful Ones ?

Wishing you a Friday full of things to be grateful for !

Big Love !

You always seem to be saying what is on my mind...!

I have had to give myself a good talking to lately, reminding myself to shrink the space where fear lives and flood it with thoughts of love and gratitude, saturate it in-fact so there is no room left for those little fear blighters to grow!

This post fills me with sister spirit and I love your little rock Being!!!

Hugs x

Thank you, I needed to hear so many of these words, one by one. Thank you for stopping by chez moi and leaving some comfort. It has been a wild, weird and wacky week. And I know I have called it in, but I am grateful for the words you offer to help me heal from it all. Gratfeul for our friendship, so very much. xo
