The Painting: This was a joy to paint. The collector loved the painting Patina 2 and wanted the same feel but with her appaloosa in the painting. BTW, Appy 2, which she owns, will be on the cover this next month of the Appy Magazine. Stay tuned for a look in a few weeks. This piece is painted with Holbein Duo Oils on Canvas and it is large at 3 ft by 4 ft. I would love to paint for you...so contact me for your own Pace Signature Original.
The Thought: Our youngest daughter is still very ill. I am pumping her full of fruit and juices, mucinex and tylenol etc but it is not a positive thing right now. Does not look like we will make my older daughter's house for Thanksgiving. I am sad because there will be new family to be attending along with everyone that has NOT been together since the death of our grandson Grant, three years ago. Terry is going to stop at Whole Foods for a turkey this afternoon and I will be cooking. It is not that I mind doing it, but I was sooo looking forward to NOT doing it this year. I was assigned OMA in charge of the TINK and due at Stacey's house around eight to tend the baby while they finished up the turkey day meal. Last count was at twenty for guests I think. It is obviously not in God's plans for us to attend, so I am assuming He wants me to cook here, or we won't eat. Terry is not off for Thanksgiving. He never has been, so it is not a holiday around our house this year as I will be in the studio working, youngest daughter will be in bed with the flu and the turkey will be tucked in the oven until Terry makes it home at four. Ya know, I bet someone at the base is bringing in bird... I need to ask, maybe I won't have to cook....or at least not as much.
Mom is due over this morning for a quick run to Target for last minutes stuff. I will miss the BLACK FRIDAY early jaunt with Stacey this year as well. We usually rise and start by 5 am at Target, but I saw someone was opening at Midnight tomorrow night.. I will be asleep.
So no matter what comes your way today or tomorrow, focus on giving thanks ...God has blessed our nation richly and each of us as well with our many gifts. I pray that many people will awaken to those gifts and begin to use them to serve others and to prosper their lives...not prosper necessarily with money but with contentment and peace. Many will go with out today and tomorrow. There are families torn apart by war, poverty, illness, petty grievances, and many other things, so we must pray for them as well.
Take care this day and give Thanks for what surrounds you, find the peace in what you hold right now.
