Thinking Back on the Past 2 weeks...4 Thank-You's

I can't believe we are approaching NeW YeaR'S eve in a few hours. 
I'm sitting back thinking about the closing of the 2010 holiday season. 
WOW! So fast and so sweet. 
4   t h i n g s   that made this holiday so wonderful-- 
and continuous sweet undertones from this past year...

r e l a t i o n s h i p s ::  close family~ continued close friendships~
connecting with family near and far~ 
old cousins becoming "new cousins"~
making new "creative flying friends" that support & inspire...

a  c o z y   h o m e  :: after spending time on a continued basis, 
working at the   F r e e   M e a l s  program at Calvary Community Church, 
I have gained a new perspective on what a "home" is to me.
The "simplicity of a warm place to be" has a new meaning to my family. 
I have discovered a heart for people that don't have a home, that I never knew I had.
More to come on this in 2011...

G o d   s p i r i t  :: Christmas Eve services are always a special treat for us- as a family. 
Sometimes it seems to be- the one time we are all together in the same place. 
This year, there was a drum segment to the music of "Little Drummer Boy" 
that took my breath away. 
I thought I'd share a video that was posted...
it will give you an idea of the creativity of the performance.
It totally made my Christmas eve~~ 
summing up the feeling of the holidays with 5 drums!

a r t :: Always so grateful to be able to be doing art. 
It was a year of trying many "new" things~
Finding my way down different path's of art that I want to travel on.
Enjoying the ride with many "new" friends and a lot of "older friends" 
who have been most supportive along the road.
I am sooooo amazed at the support, the inspiration, and the doors that are opening.
Here's a "toast"to friends old and new, and a wish for many many 
continued blessings in 2011 to all!
