Wishing you the feeling of abundance

I think it was Louise Hay who used to encourage
 an affirmation, "abundance is my natural state."
Looking at my life today I feel that way.  Here
is this beautiful fruit on the table, sharing the
stage (out of the picture) with roses and candles.
It is the picture of the bounty of this season.

This little watercolour is very different from
the drawing it began with, and I could do it
ten more times and get a different painting
every time.  I hope you are having a lovely
holiday no matter what you celebrate.

Have a feeling-you-live-in-abundance day.

Hi Sally,

Thanks for the good wishes. We did have Christmas in the light, but were out of power for three and a half days! It was very hard. Happily the lights and heat came on Christmas Eve, and stayed on until the next day when we had a repeat but were rescued by neighbours, and then thankfully the power came back.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
XOXOXO
