I started the month wanting to know and feel appreciation for all that is good in my life. And I am so happy to say, after a tough February, that March has been all about gratitude and love and the things that matter. It has been effortless really. I think celebrating my husband’s 50th and having such beautiful and meaningful time with him was the medicine my soul has needed.
It’s interesting. I just feel more alive. Everything is amplified. My mom has these beautiful California poppies growing randomly in front of her house. I am just mesmerized by their vivid hue. And I am particularly fond of the fact that they just found a home in her front yard, all on their own. My photo taking skills aren’t the best, but I just had to share them:
While billions of people the world over may not celebrate the specific significance of this Easter weekend, I think all of us can appreciate the message of hope, love and renewal.
And with that said, I wish you a weekend, and April, filled with those very things.
May all of our days be blessed and beautiful.
I know I haven’t had much to say in the last week, but I have been busy being a mom, daughter, wife and friend; time with those I love makes me happier than anything in this world. I just wanted to stop in and say a quick “hello.” I love and appreciate those of you who have continued to stop by in what can be a very demanding time of year for all of us.
Your support means everything, and it has kept me going. There has been a lot of self-doubt and not-so-good moments in the last year. But I’m lucky. All the love and positive energy has kept me going. Thank you for providing the magic that I have needed. It has restored my faith in myself, and the world.
I look forward to being back in the swing of things later this week. I feel like I have a million things swimming inside my head. My creative juices are flowing. There are so many things I want to say. And I’m feeling rather good about what the new year has in store; for me, for you, for my family and for everyone else on this beautiful earth.
I wish everyone a safe and wonderful New Year’s Eve.
And may 2013 be everything you dream of.
