What I am Thankful for Today

These clouds for one, I took these shots yesterday as I was coming home from a job, they looked too beautiful to be real to me. I have never seen such wonderful clouds until I came to New Mexico. I am also thankful for the cricket that I hear outside my window every night, I love that sound. I am thankful for my animal boys, everyday is a gift. Thankful for my family and friends and bloggy friends, whom I love very much. I am thankful for this Sunday and for two new boards I just primed, for the fact that this is my painting and reading and relaxing day. I am thankful for my doves and all the birds I feed who give me a daily show. I am thankful for "Lost" which I have just begun renting, I am in my 3rd season and I am in love with Desmond :-).
I am thankful for spirit which guides me daily. What are you thankful for today? Happy Sunday! Love ♥ XOXO

Oh Annie, I probably would have driven off the road, unable to take my eyes off the sky!!
These are incredible clouds. I'm so in love with clouds!

It sounds like you have an abundance of things to be thankful for. I love that you recognize what many take for granted ;)

Today I painted Buddha and Quan Yin for a spiritual connection I was needing. It centered me while I painted in silence.

Happy Sunday Annie, and happy painting!

Annie said...

Robin-Thought you would like these :-).xoxo
Becky-You have a wonderful, creative day too.xoxo
Angela-So happy you like Desmond too! Love. xoxo
Lo-I did drive off the road, several times LOL, finally had to stop and take the photos, then I kept looking behind me as I drove away from them, very dangerous for others :-).
Your paintings sound lovely, are you going to share?

I'm thankful every day for my life and what it holds, be it ever so humble ;-)

p.s. cumulus clouds are my favorites - just lovely - makes you want to bounce on them, doesn't it?

Annie said...

Nolly-Sweet. Love.xoxo
Doris-Yes, you could totally bounce :-). xoxo

reading this is as good as a day of meditation or an afternoon of chanting or an hour of yoga or a couple of hot fudge sundaes :)

count me as someone who is grateful for many things, and right up there are the important friendships i have made right here.

xo annie

love love love

I never have seen as much sky as I did when in Taos, and these clouds are just perfectly wonderful!
So much to be grateful for,,that just says a big 'ol mouthful doesn't it?
I figure any day we're upright and breathin' is a wonderful day to be grateful for!

kj said...

okay, so you have to clean up my redundancy act, annie. i'm blaming it on my iphone.

although i can easily say the same thing three or more times....


Unknown said...

Emom-Always happy to see you.xoxo

These are truly wonderful photos...those clouds look so soft and lovely. I've spent time in New Mexico and love the awesome light...just perfect for photography and painting and creating.

I'm thankful for crickets, too. They're awesome!
