So in honor of my sweet friend I thought I'd try my hat at random again. She's sorta the queen of that:)
It dawned on me the other day that one of my biggest fears about moving here was losing my sunset views. If you follow along with me on IG you know that was a really silly fear of mine.
I may not see the ground in my views, but they are still spectacular. When we lived in MN our house was positioned perfectly to take in the most amazing sunsets night after night. We overlooked an old farmhouse with cows and barns and all the things I hold dear, and it was just a very special place. I really mourned that view initially. I know that sounds crazy, but the sun and I have a thing. We just do;) I thought the trees were going to ruin my view, but I was wrong. They are different, but wonderful all the same.
It became clear to me that we may have a certain idea in our heads of the way things have to be and God may have something entirely different in mind. He knows what we love. He knows what we need and even if it's not exactly the way we want it, He's gonna take care of us. Love Him!
I felt such relief when I finally decided to stop the home paintings. It was fun initially and then I made it WORK! And any time painting becomes work I hate it! That sounds nuts, but it's true. When I paint what I want, when I want it's pure joy. Pure BLISS! I will figure out how to get prints made though. So keep a look out for that:)
This week I finally took time and pampered myself BIG. Honey gave me a gift certificate for Christmas to spend at a day spa and it was way past due that I checked myself in!
Let's just say I'm not good at taking care of certain things. Like my feet;) They were so bad the poor girl had to get three different kinds of "cheese" grater things out. My friend Tamara made fun of me soooo bad. She's good at that;) It's just my genetics I guess to have really callused, really thick heels. Not any more though...my feet are soft and smooth like a baby's butt now. It's moving up on my priority list to do this more often. We need to take the time. It's pretty important.
Okay so my honey travels alot and when he's gone I have nothing to watch on tv. Nothing! Because all our shows are on DVR I have to wait for him! I'm explaining this because I feel like I need to clarify that Kim Kardashian is not the first thing I would pick to watch, but when you are doing the elliptical machine you need something to entertain. And entertain she does.
Is it weird that she breaks my heart?? Literally my heart hurts for this girl. She is so wrapped up in the superficial...the clothes, her outward appearance...the glam that I fear she is going to go mental someday. What in the world is she going to do when she looks in the mirror in the future and she's old? Outward beauty fades. I can attest to that. I'm starting to see it myself. OR that day when her fame will disappear...remember Paris Hilton? I can, but just barely. Anyway I just want to open her vacant eyes and fill it with something...Someone that can change her focus. Let's pray for Kim.
Okay if you're still with me you deserve a cookie or something. So here it is;) My multi-talented friend Jeanne is offering 5 spots to her new "Letting Go" class. I have no doubt it's going to be AMAZING! I know alot of you have that inner desire to create and you don't know where to start. Jeanne is really good at taking you by the hand and teaching you some amazing techniques. So even if you don't win check into it. Sign up. It will be so fun to spread those art wings:) To enter leave me a comment and be random. What's rolling around in your mind?? I'd love to know. I'll pick the winners after I get back from my ROAD TRIP!!!!!
Be a blessing!
