"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Beautiful Y♥U

You are so beautiful to me..♫♪
(the back of one of my newly created art jounals)


I am so thankful for each of you.
There is just something so special about
fellow blogging friends.
When I visit your blogs
I become 
more inspired,

more hopeful, more creative…
and the list could continue on and on.
But the main reason I visit you is because
YOU ARE YOU
You are REAL
You are not trying to be
someone else, or something other than
who you are not.

I cherish the ups in your life and

I cherish the down times too.

Many times, what you are going

through at the moment, touches

my heart so deeply

because it is similar to what

 I am going through also.
Thank YU...You inspire me!

Actually, the real you inspires
and gives hope to more than just me,
but to so many more.
Your own “YOU” journey is
a very important one.
So don’t ever doubt that YOU make a difference.

 “A journey is best measured in friends

 rather than miles.”

Tim Cahill


You help inspire my wings to open and fly! 


(new watercolor pendant I recently created)


Oh... I just felt a sweet breeze...
and heard a flutter...
Oh yes...
you're wings are opening.
Can you feel it?

Love that pendant. Please tell me it is going to be part of your etsy shop soon.

Butterflies hold significance for me because when my mother passed away her hospice nurse gave each of us girls (5) butterfly pins...

Thank you so much for your post! You always bless me so much by your words and your creativity.
I love the Blessings song. I miss my music so much. I don't know why I can't launch my new playlist. Oh well!
Take care dear lady.

Jlynn,

Yes the butterfly pendant was in my etsy shop this past weekend, but it sold the next day! You can see it and more views of it in my sold items in my etsy shop at www.haveadaisy.com

I can paint you up another one if you are really interested. Just let me know. You can also go to my etsy shop and contact me through the there or here. I think you have my email too.

I work at Hospice, so your story was even more touching for me about your grandmother and the hospice nurse. I also have another friend whose sister passed away and she purchased a butterfly pendant in her sister's memory because butterflies were a special thing that her and her sister shared a love for.

What a blessing it is for me that something I've created can bring up a special memory of someone you love. That is a great gift to me.

♥Lee Ann
