Deep Gratitude


I love celebrating all the holidays, particularly
Christmas. Just like in years past, it is hard
to believe that this most wondrous day is
almost here. Especially since, I have spent
the last week in bed, recuperating from
oral surgery.

Not only have I been trying to do my best to
get lots of rest, I have also been feeling so
grateful for family and friends that have called
or dropped by to check on me, for experiencing
such an INCREDIBLE year... like having
my beautiful book published, being able to visit
England, and once again having the opportunity
to share my love of Nature through teaching art.

And grateful to you, dear reader...Many THANKS
for visiting this blog of mine. I ADORE
hearing from each and every one of you. Your
lovely comments always fill me with such
happiness... I truly hold your words close to
my heart.

We are expecting a deep snow on Christmas Eve
which will leave the Plains dressed in white, adding
the most perfect bit of magic to the upcoming holiday.

I also look forward to sharing some BIG NEWS
with all of you on New Years, regarding several very
exciting happenings for 2010.

Until then wishing you and yours...
Much Warmth, Peace, Happiness,
and may your days be Merry & Bright!

Tracie--I'm grateful for all the sharing you do here, in your book, and in your classes. Rest up from your surgery and get better soon. And---even when you're better--don't tell anyone so you can continue to be pampered!! I'll go eat a piece of chocolate for you (tee hee). Enjoy the snow and the beauty and the quiet that it brings. Merry Christmas and I look forward to seeing you again in August in Phoenix.

Dearest Tracie--now is a good time to tell you that one of the very high points of my year was spending time on Squam Lake, listening to the loons and sharing thoughts and ideas with you. Your book is a blessing to me, knowing the beautiful heart that wrote it.

I hope you recover quickly from your surgery and enjoy all of the loveliness Christmas has to offer.

Maybe my New Year dreams will come true and I will get to see you again in 2010. ~~Kathy

Tracie - I've had a TON of oral surgery this year so I can sympathize with you. I'm enjoying following/reading your blog. Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays Tracie, I hope that your New year is filled with love, family, health and prosperity.
We prosper by what we give. We get back what we put into this world and you have put so much into mine. Thank you for your wonderful blog and I gave myself a gift of one of your signed books. I gave my other copy to a friend and she is so happy with it.
Have a great New year.
Hugs
Jan
