Friday’s Five: Truths

Gratitude this late Friday evening for things I name as well as things I keep silent about for awhile for just my heart to know…which brings me to item

 #1:

The truth that we need not answer every question we are asked…protect your secret self without apology or explanation; 

#2:

The truth that winterberries add a burst of color to a gray January landscape…I’m hoping to pick vases full this weekend;

#3:

The truth that spirituality is a form of knowing and grows exponentially as it is nurtured…there is so much to know;

#4:

The truth that babies express joy through belly laughs at only a few months old…and the blessing of daughters-in-law who text videos so you don’t miss the moments;

#5:

The truth that one’s earliest memories can be recalled and today’s dots continue to be connected…

Here’s to seeing the truths and knowing the joy…

Friday’s Five

1. See that cardinal? It was a welcome visitor this week, and I was lucky to get this shot through the window.

 

2. Texas weather. High in 60s today. Tomorrow? 40s. That means a possibility of a fire in the wood burning stove. And homemade soup. (That’s 3 things. Oh well.)

3.  I began the Documented Life Project 2016 with several other art friends. It’s a creative promise I made and it will be fun to see how it evolves. 

 4. Knit shawl in progress. Almost off the needles !

5. This sweetie turned 5 months yesterday. Saved the best for last this week.

Friday’s Five

Happy New Year! I am going to try to get back on track with this blog in 2016. Here’s to a year of art and travel and words. I am not usually a maker  of resolutions, but I like these. More. A year of abundance of good things. May we all have that. Amen.

 

Light more candles.

Draw more pictures.

Pick more flowers.

Write more letters.

Read more books.
