Artsy Fartsy.....Simple things...and Leaf Art


     Feeling kind of blah lately.

            It could be the cooler weather.

                 It  could be the anticipation of a stressful situations on the horizon.

                                   I have never been a big sharer of woes.

                                   except when I write of course.

                                   There in those blank pages I write about everything that worries me, saddens me and  angers me. I even have a prayer journal where I thank God first for his blessings in my life. Writing is my escape.

                               Simple things make me smile. I am happiest when I am with my family. I breathe easier when we are all together. I know that soon will change. College-age kids will be off sooner than I think... So I treasure every moment with them. We all know that our love for each other is unconditional~ I will never ever stop loving matter how messy their rooms are! Together we have experienced enough to fill books that may be titled  what the heck is going on now!?! to survive this and that    and I'm OK you're OK too right?


                                     Simple things...

                                               Quiet time....

                       and when troubles come my way...

                               I simply push them aside so that I can see the light behind the darkness. It keeps me up and ever present in "Hope"                                          

                                                 It's all good.

        I found this artist and his name is Norman Paper and in this video he makes beautiful art with leaves. He creates and before you know it...its gone. Life is like that too.  Go with the flow, don't stress the petty stuff and look forward for the next moment that will make you smile. This is what I keep telling myself~



Enjoy the moment~Blessings, Joanne


  1. Awesome! I am sorry you are stressed now, so am I. I hope it is only a temporary thing. Two of my best friends only have a few weeks left to live.

    1. Oh Ginny I am so sorry! Is this the same friend that had a recurrence of cancer last year? I cant imagine how you are feeling. I am so very sorry. I will pray hard for them and their families and you too sweet Ginny. God Bless you and give you strength.

  2. Sorry you are feeling blah....writing about it will help quite a bit. Cheerful thoughts going out to you.

    1. Hi Delores, Thanks you! An old friend once told me to just say 4 words and it would make one feel better...."This too shall pass"
      Have an awesome day!
