because of you, I smile...

there aren't enough words to use
or
hugs big enough to send
that would adequately thank all of you
for being so supportive of me
and
all that I do
~~
yesterday
your comments jumped off my computer screen
and
into my heart
and
by the end of the day I was filled with more love
than I could have ever imagined
~~
so how do I say
thank you
to all of you
loud enough
?
the kind of loud
that has all of us doing the chicken dance
and
the limbo
~under a flaming stick~
on a dance floor
~~
well I can only think of one thing
A-GIVE-AWAY
~~
who want's a new banner
?
if you do
leave a 1-3 word comment on this post
telling me what you're grateful for
{only 1-3 words}
and
on
thanksgiving day
I will pull a name out of my
new winter felted wool
hat
and
create for you
an artsy banner using your photos
as
a huge thank you
~from the bottom of my heart~
*
and
the beautiful horse above
that cracked me up when he actually smiled at me
~~
well
the other day on my way to my sister's house, the sunflower park had horse trailers in the parking lot
so I pulled my car over for a closer look
and
was able to catch 3 wonderful ladies on horseback
who told me
"of course you can take photos"
~~
there's a few more over at ruby luna worth seeing
only
if you have any time left
now that I've practically written a book
that's probably sucked up a chunk of your day

    This is more than three, I know. I don't even have a public blog, so this is not an entry. I'm just grateful to have been able to take the time to really think about what I am grateful for. Thank you. I truly appreciate your work. Your photography has the unique ability to evoke emotion and memories. It is remarkable.
