Attitude of Gratitude

dewy spiderwebToday I was painting and printing some photos, and I kept thinking about how Symbol Reader had said she liked that shot of the seagull, and in fact, maybe I could imagine a series of blue summer postcards using the seagull, the sky, the beach, and maybe another series of orange summer postcards using the sand castles, the paddlers, the kids, and as these ideas, these possibilities opened and unspooled in my mind, I realized how much I’ve felt buoyed by all the kind words recently of so many of the people who stop by here – Symbol Reader and Dawn and John and Sofia and Fat Bottom Girl and Uzoma and Ashley and my new friend Emmy at unbuttoned or undone and my heart started to overflow with gratitude for all the support and kindness and generosity of all these people, I felt so very very blessed…
And on that note I should include one more shout out, as I’ve been participating in a Create Positive Change Program (it’s free!!) by the delightful Nicole at Cauldrons and Cupcakes – and more than anything it is about practicing gratitude.
And man, am I ever feeling grateful…

  1. Awww, you are too kind, Kat. I think about this a lot. There are several bloggers who have become intrinsic parts of my day/week… I wonder how they are, and what they are up to. I too have had dreams about some blogging friends. It’s a really surreal part of the blogging experience, that I did not anticipate, but am so grateful for. Thanks for including me in your thoughts Kat. You are so often in mine as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Youโ€™re a rare gem: heads in the right place, minds in the right space, ears tuned to the music, not the noise, feet planted on solid ground, a wordsmith, and an artist whose eyes see detail and colour in the horizon. Whatโ€™s there not to love ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh Kat, how very sweet! And thanks so much for your recent words of support when I was going through a rough patch. I think all the kindnesses shown to me, and the stories related by women who have gone through similar stuff, helped me move along the road to healing. Your photos are beautiful, and I love to see the way you view the world through the lens of your camera. Peace to you!

    1. Karen, thank you so much for all your kind words over recent months – it means so very much to me and you were on my mind for a shoutout as well, but I have mentioned you so often in my posts, I didn’t want to oversaturate you… xxx K
