*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Saturday, October 26, 2019

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Thank you for all the well wishes about my promotion. It's going well. More hours, more everything! LOL! Just taking it all day by day. I'm truly so grateful, for everything! I know I have said this many of times, but I can't believe the changes that have occurred within me and around me.

One of my neighbour's little girls, always runs away when she sees me. But, it's what she does afterwards. She runs to the grass and finds the dandelions. Picks a bunch for me, runs back, puts them in my hand, gives me a hug and tells me, she loves me. Elaina is 3 now. The name Elaina, is of the French origin and means "bright, shining light". We are all bright shining lights. We are love! We are all worthy! Make sure to hug yourself everyday and give yourself a bouquet of flowers! You're special. We will all find our way. We have to be true to our souls! When you listen to your soul, it's surprising where it will take you! Sometimes, you might not want to do what it's saying because you don't know what the outcome will be, but that's the fun/scary part! LOL! πŸ’—

There's still some leaves on our trees. 
And, a little friend came by to say hi!
I did manage to finish a painting! I have to admit, even if it's an hour, coming home and doing a little painting, I truly love!
Here are some progress pictures!


Finished painting. 8 x 8 canvas. 
"The First Snow"


Big Hugs!

  28. The little crow seems to be a bit surprised about the first snow - and so cute!
    I love what you wrote about that little girl. It's so precious. At the German School where I teach there's a little girl - she's a kindergartner - who always comes running and gives me a hug when she sees me. My favorite part!

  40. And also I had to move out of the apt I was in as I had a nervous breakdown. So everything but books and bookcases and some stuff precious to me was kept. I managed to hold on to two on your little crows that I love so much, and for that I was grateful. I still am xox
