#14 -- Noticing what you have

Flowers in a Dutch Jug

The three lemons in the small antique china bowl on my
kitchen table, are a reminder of how lucky I am.  We
went to one supermarket looking for lemons and they
were all a mess, small, old, lumpy -- the opposite of
beautiful.  But at the second supermarket -- all the
same problems and 3 perfect lemons.  They sit between
two candleholders, and are actually something my son
taught me to do to decorate a table when I didn't
have flowers.

I have restarted my Happiness Blog, Smile First,
and it's making me think about Shawn Achor and
his advice to think of three things you're grateful
for every day.  I am so grateful for you -- for
this community.  For your inspiration and the
shows I've been in with you, and found out about
through you, and for the work you've bought from
me.  Thank you.

It's late and I taught tonight, so I'm posting another
iPad drawing, that photographed because my
iPad (brand new) cannot send images.  And that's a
problem for another day.

Have a enjoying the abundance in your life day.
