As the year ends I am amazed it went so quickly. Six months of it I was so ill, I didn't even Blog, or create my Pink Pretties. Nonetheless, it has been a Blessed year, full of wonderful Gifts from my Father in Heaven.
A new job for Hubby. Better health for me. Closer ties with Family. New friends and more time with old ones. Yes, this year has been a true Blessing for me. My cup runneth over. :) I picked a few pictures to represent some of my art this year, some of my collecting, and some of my celebrations. First, some of my Art............
My mood was light and whimsical, as reflected in my Art this year. Romantic, Playful and Innocent was what I wanted to reflect . Life can be what you make it. :)
2008 was SO heavy, between my health and Hubby's work situation, I craved the simplicity and cheerfulness that I am used to. I really am quite Simple, Happy Go Lucky and a Half full kind of person. I don't handle being weighted down very well. This year was a step back and Breathe year. Next year, I plan on charging out of the gate like I used to :):):) My collections went from pretty shabby pink roses, to more childlike and whimsical pieces, as my mood has lightened.
Finally, Celebrating the Seasons. Valentines day , Easter and Christmas. I decorated my "Wee Tree" for each change of the Season. ( Well, except Summer :) ) Life and all of its moments were worthy of Celebration this year. The good as well as the not so good. Gratefully, my Not so Goods, turned into Wonderfuls ! Aunt Judy and her BFF Joy, both fought and won breast cancer ! My MS test, came back negative. And all of my Hubby's job No's and Not Now's, turned into the perfect Yes ! God is Good !
But one of the Best part of 2009 for me, was YOU, each of you. Even though my little break turned into six months, you were all here to welcome me back as though I hadn't missed a day. The friendships and wonderful, beautiful women I have "met" online are forever etched into my heart. The love, prayers, cards and support is the greatest treasure to me. I cherish each of you :) Thank you :)
I am having a giveaway on Pink Saturday this week. Both to celebrate the New Year, and this is my 150'th post !! ( 2 years later, I don't talk much, lol ! ) Also, I won a super sweet giveaway from a very special blogger that I want to share :)
Happy New Year !! May 2010 be a coming together for Our Country, our Friends and Families. May we each accomplish what we set out to do, and may each of us end next year, with more people to Love, than last year !!! :):)
