Hi Everyone!!
I try to live my life the very best I can. I am at an age that I remember and practice courtesy, manners, treat other's as I would want to be treated, and to help when I can. I never make a promise I know I can't keep. I try to surround myself with like minded people. We are all human and we sometimes disappoint. However, when that disappointment is continual, and becomes back biting evil, then I remove those people from my circle   Simple as that.  I find it so much easier to be nice, not to lie, not to cheat, and not to steal from those you call "friend" Or anyone else for that matter. 
I am the most fortunate person to know people from around the world that are nice, that do treat other's as they would want to be treated. The love and caring that comes across is not ORDINARY at all, in fact the people in my life are EXTRA ORDINARY. You my readers, have become a family that is unconditional. The giving and the response sometimes overwhelms me. I hope that I too give as much as I receive. It is so easy to be nice, to remove the negative from one's being. It starts with a single word of encouragement, or a gesture of kindness.  Thank you to all the amazing people who make my life so special.
Last week I was the recipient of two blog wins.
The first is from Regina from Southern OOAK How can I go wrong with my favorite color green Right. Regi  just knows I am an earth girl. LOL Stop by to meet Regi, she has a wonderful blog, and is a brilliant artist.

The second win also has to do with my earthy spirit. I won this awesome book from Stacey who is Raven/Crow woman! You will know what I am talking about when you visit her very cool blog, MagicLoveCrow
I have a large collection of faeries and books on faeries. I was thrilled to win this book.
A very good read

This is not a win.  This beautiful set was made by my baby girl, April Dawn. I mentioned to her how much my hands hurt so she made these hand warmers, added a hat and a scarf. I wear a scarf everyday. How sweet of my daughter to do this while she is in the process of moving. BTW my surgery on Wednesday is also my daughter's birthday. She will be 41!!! OMGssshhhhh  I have middle aged kids.

I am so blessed and so I send blessing on to all of you.
Happy Monday

Honor and Integrity in Life in Art
