Sending you all wishes for a blessed and happy Thanksgiving day! Let today be the start of a brand new year… don’t wait for January 1, New Years Day. Let it start TODAY with gratitude for all our blessings in this imperfect crooked beautiful inspiring amazing life. Focus on love and forgiveness and fresh beginnings, quiet, compassion, and new goals. Hug your loved ones, be yourself, give of your time, smile at strangers, write hand-written thank-you notes, express yourself, sing, dance, be childlike, play, laugh, and savor this life. xo Love to you all, Ann
Matt was so young when he made all these things… I have dishes he made for me and all sorts of bowls, but I love this little sign most of all… it sits in the kitchen next to my vitamins and I think how much I love it every time I see it… yes, peace to all who enter here… this is a place of peace, as it should be… xo Mud Dabbers, 3623 Greenville Hwy., Brevard – 828-884-5131 – www.meddabbers.com
… in a meeting at SAFE today regarding fundraising projects for October Domestic Violence Awareness month and was told that Steve Owen & Associates is a “Master Sponsor” of the SAFE fundraising golf tournament this weekend… so happy to hear that!
… alas, he would rather be home playing in the dirt… but, he loves all the women that work here…and all the women here at the vet’s office adore him… women or playing outside, it’s a tough toss-up for Mac ;-)
…I walked 1-1/2 miles down the drive way to feed the horses and donkeys… and then, the Polaris wouldn’t start, so I had to walk the 1-1/2 miles all the way back to the house (uphill, on what seems like a 45 degree angle, although Mike says it’s only 15 degrees)… yes, I was exhausted! Ah well, life on the mountain!
It’s the first day of a brand new year, and it’s already a good one… flying home to Brevard with from the Dominican Republic… what an absolutely wonderful trip… Mike asked me to marry him in the sweetest most tender proposal!
