Mixed media (or collage) artist Debbie Overton had a neat idea for her 50th birthday. No cake, no party, just share happiness in a blog post.How is she going to do this? By simply asking us to post things we are grateful for in our lives.
Sharing the things you are grateful for can’t help but make you happy, and it reminds other people to think of what they are grateful for.
For life, even though I have squandered far too much of mine.
For love, which I have given freely.
For love, which I have received, far more than I deserve
For laughter, compassion, strength and kindness.
For light, warmth, colors, shapes and forms, which allows us to see beauty and smiles.
For ears, which allows us to hear music, voices and laughter.
For hands, which allow us to touch, to make and to share.
For the people and pets which keep us from walking through this world alone.
For the stars, and the sea, the mountains and forests, plains and deserts, which remind us that we ourselves are insignificant, and just a small part of something which is much greater.
Thanks, Debbie,and a Happy Birthday to you!
