I recently had to undergo some medical procedures and wait, not so patiently, for the results. It was a difficult time and try as I might to not think about it, sometimes the fears and worries would start to take over. The results are in and while I still have some things to take care of, the major scare is over, but this post isn’t about that. It’s about my profound sense of gratitude.
I’m thankful to be able to pursue my creative passions and more grateful than ever that my Beloved not only supports me, but encourages me to turn to my art during those times when I need to soothe my restless spirit.
I spent a lot of time in my art studio during those days of waiting, often times with no other intention than to just keep busy, to not think. And while Patrick is incredibly supportive and offers me a great deal of comfort, there were times when I just needed to lose myself in my art for a while and that’s something he understood. It’s just one of the many reasons I love Him so.
Yesterday I received a gift at work that had this “Every Day Is A Gift” tag attached and it really resonated with me so I went home and sat down to play in my journal. The only thing I knew was that I wanted to incorporate the tag, the rest just developed from a combination of stamps, doodle, paint, a love of art journaling and a whole lot of gratitude.
My recent scare and this tag is a great reminder that Every Day Is A Gift and I plan to live each one of them Out Loud!
