Magic is Everywhere!

Magic is Everywhere!

I truly believe that magic is everywhere!

 It's in the way the trees are when I am laying outside on my lounge and i look up.

It is in the way the full moon looks on the ocean.

It's in the way Lulu digs her scarf out of the pile of wash.

Its in the way Steve gives me that special smile just for me.

Its in the way it feels when it rains on a really hot day.

Its in the way when I watch a butterfly fluttering all around my head.

Its in the way I feel when all my sisters come and we sit around laughing.

Its in the way I see my father flourishing at 83.

Its in the way I see my daughter Nelly with her little family.

So many ways. I could go on and on.

I am so grateful for the magic!

Think about all the magic that is around you.  Even if you are having a tough time of it you can always find some magic. It will help you make it through.

Look for what you can find?

Please visit Paint Party Friday and check out all the magical artists.

Heather thats so cool that you talked about magic being everywhere because I was just thinking about that yesterday on my way to work. The sunrise was so gorgeous, then I started thinking about other wonderful things and people in my life and before long I was actually anxious to get to work and see all my friends and do the soldering! It was really neat how it just snowballs when ya start thinking about magic, it really IS everywhere!!! Your painting as usual just takes my breath away. I LOVE the butterfly ears!!! Deb

We live in a magical world, how nice for you to slow down and notice... not always easy, but so necessary. I love to marvel at magical things in my life not unlike yours :) All your beautiful paintings have just the sweetest faces.

Now that my tomato sauce fiasco is behind me (thank God!) I can focus on more magical things... like how in the hell did 2 five gallon buckets full of tomatoes make only 3 and 3/4 quarts of sauce?????
