Good morning!

I was going thru all the photos I have yet to put in albums (there are way too many) found several of my son Chas when he was just a baby. This was taken when I was only 21 yrs old...Yikes...could that really be me??? Can you believe he was that *healthy* from just breast milk??? Yep! Those were tough days however because of bad choices I married a man who was abusive both physically and mentally. It lasted only 5 yrs and I was blessed to get out with my life and my son...he went on to marry 6 more times never changing and passed away last year. So sad, but I thank God for being there with me thru it all.
I can remember so many times when I found myself in one bad situation after another, some because of bad choices, some from being in the wrong place at the wrong time!!! I won't go into all that because it's in the past, and I've realized that life is just too short to beat those old times over and over again...wouldn 't you agree?? I know sometimes we do have to go back and deal with things to be able to put them to rest...I believe I've done that with most things...I still have dreams that take me back to my childhood...don't know why, but I'm all for living in the now!!! Having found this wonderful place to finally share all what I do with likeminded people who have become so very dear to my heart makes everyday a treasure. Funny how many things just doing seem to matter anymore...I feel God's presence everytime I pick up a paintbrush. I really do believe HE gives us these talents to share with others don't you??? My heart is so full I of love for all those I've met here, (mostly for bringing my sister and I together in a very special way) ehhehe!! Here I am back to my sweet sister. What can I say, being here sharing everything I do with her means so much!!! Now, I am wishing each of you a wonderfully blessed day today...and a full week of wonderful discoveries to paint, think about and to share!!! (((hugs))) Bevie

What an awesome day!

It's now very dark when I get up in the morning! My feet hit the floor at 5:30 ( a little late)this morning, and I went straight to the back deck to see the moon overhead. It was just as beautiful as it was last night, and as I breathed in the cool, fresh morning air I thought how blessed we are to live in a world where we have get up when we want, to be able to go out, and see such beauty!! The moon was highlighting the tall trees as the stars twinkled between them. Two deer were eating at a feeder just beyond the back fence. Little squirrels were already scurrying around in the fallen leaves hunting for their morning meal.

I love mornings don't you??? Everything is fresh, and you get the feeling, at least I do, that this day can be the best yet. I think to myself I'm gonna paint something really good today. Will I do a beach scene or will I jump outta that ole' box and do something different, exciting like a really kewl mixed media collage...Yes, that's what I'm gonna do today. I want to start doing ATC cards but need to read all I can about them. It's so much fun to go to our groups and see all the beautiful art displayed there...more importantly for me it's the joy I feel when one of my new friends make a nice comment on something I created. That makes my work real know??? It validates my creativity. As you read this blog you will again realize writing isn't my strong suit..ehehhe!!! I tend to jump from thought to that when talking to my friends as well...that and the bad habit of butting in when someone is's not that I'm being mean, it's that I'm so excited about what they are saying...does that make any sense??? Now should I delete this and start over???? hummm...nay! I pray that each of you have a truly blessed day...creating another wonderful piece, or just being the best you you!!! Bevie
