"Blessings" a new painting by Mary Mirabal
With 2015 seemingly passing by so quickly, I found myself reflecting this week on the many blessings in my life. Being able to create art is one of those blessings, so I was inspired to create this painting simply titled "Blessings". Each of us face different challenges in this life, but when you actually take time to reflect and count your blessings your eyes become opened to all the gifts you've already received. For me my faith, family, friends and health are the most precious.
For instance, my wonderful hubby of nearly 36 years reminded me this week that Tuesday was the 40th anniversary of our first date. I had not even remembered this fact. He earned brownie points for that! Then, don't even get me started on our three sweet grandchildren. Oh, and our two beautiful children who gave us our grands are pretty special too.
I hope you find time in your busy days to "stop and smell the roses" friends. Every day we are given to spend with loved ones IS truly a blessing. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend to come. Thanks so much for taking time to visit me. Blessings ~ Mary
