Billy- Random Act of Kindness

...this evening I had $15.00 in my pocket as I pulled into the gas station.  I pumped $10.00 into my my tank and handed a ragged, homeless man $5.00.


His name was Billy.  He didn't asked for the money.  He was a polite, gentle, educated man (I could tell) and very eager to do something to thank me for the measly $5 bill now in HIS hand.

I asked for a hug...

and received so much more!

Eyes of the Homeless



The next time you see a homeless person, please, PLEASE don't assume anything!!

You just might be very wrong.

We all have a story to tell.

"A loving heart is the truest wisdom"
Charles Dickens


In love and light,


Tonight You Belong to Me

One of my friends posted this on Facebook the other day.  I must have watched at least 5-6 times and I'll watch it again as soon as I publish it.

I love the relationship between this father and daughter.  He's so patient with her.  Notice the love in his eyes when he looks at his little girl.

This is parenting done right!!!

It's going to be in the 70's today, so it's a good day to get outside!  I'll run a few errands and then head to the park for artistic inspiration with my sketchpad and picnic (for one) in tow.

picnics...


Make it a Beautiful Day!

Am I still loved?

Oh No, I had no clue that my comments section hasn't been working!  Actually, I suppose it was functioning the way it was designed to, more appropriately, I was unaware that readers without a Google+ profile couldn't leave a comment.

I love Google, but phooey on this function!  Not to worry, it's been corrected.  Hum, I was starting to think... I'm not loved anymore.  (hehe)

I know, my posts have changed a little recently.  I no longer have a place to have a vegetable garden,  (I'm having withdrawals!) although, I do have a small container butterfly garden for Granny.   I keep reminding myself...

I can do ANYTHING temporarily!  

I also frequent the farmer's market, and keep reading my favorite gardening bloggers that continue to faithfully post their adventures, thank God, so it's kind of, sort of, almost feels the same as being in the garden.  Um, not really, but I do appreciate you guys more than you know!

Meanwhile, I'll be here... painting and working toward my goal...


My Inspiration...
 Isn't it lovely!! 


with a vegetable garden, of course!!!





Make it a Beautiful Day!
