grateful


i am grateful for:
  • my husband who really, truly supports everything i do - every moment of every day.
  • my two amazing boys. the little dude who amazes me with his brains, and the baby dude who amazes me with his dimpled-smile. i am more grateful for their health and happiness than just about anything in my life right now. 
  • my parents, who taught me: right from wrong, how to be a good person, the meaning of family, to work hard for what i want, and to never let anyone tell me it's not possible.
  • my parents who supported me through all my dreams of being an "artist" and never really questioned it or it's viability as a "job". 
  • my artistic ability which has lead me to run my own company which i love. 
  • being able to be home with my children every day no matter how hectic it is or how much i want to pull my hair out at the end of the day. i wouldn't have it any other way. 
  • my entire extended family - a strong, honest, hard-working family i'm proud to be a part of. 
  • my friends in real life and in the computer. i love you all!
  • beautiful blogs that fill my soul with art of all kinds and inspire me to do, and be better. 
  • my warm, beautiful house, my full belly, my soft bed. not all are so lucky.
i'm sure that as soon as i publish this i will think of a million more things, but these are top on my list at the moment.

Beautiful. Aside from the little one's names I could pretty much say exactly the same thing. We're lucky aren't we? :)
