I am a blessed woman

I am an incredibly lucky and blessed woman and this picture proves it. In this picture, gifts given with love can be seen everywhere. Some of the presents from family and friends include:

Wine Glass
Beer in the wine glass
Books on Painting
A handmade table runner
Candlestick holders
A fish tank complete with fish
A scarf
The puzzle vase
A wooden statue

However, the best presents can’t be seen but are demonstrated in a hundred different ways.  Kate cooking Christmas dinner. Bob maintains the fish tank and not expecting me to do the work.  The girls setting the table.  Mary buying the silverware six months ago on sale because she knew I would like it.  The cat sitting on my lap and the dog under the chair.

Thank you everyone for bringing so much love and joy into my life.


Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
