This drawing reminds me of the feeling of gratitude - gratitude so big you feel like you could burst!
I experience that feeling when I have just bought laundry soap, dish soap, toilet paper and shampoo. I feel so rich!!
But I love those moments when I am washed with gratitude unexpectedly. Any moment...doing anything...and there is it!  Breathing is easier, the body feels light and you can feel an inner smile bigger than the container of your body.

Have a sweet weekend!


  1. Ahhh, those moments of gratitude often hit me when I am looking at the trees from my back deck. To be blessed with a beautiful view AND to be able to purchase those wonderful necessities is enough to bring tears to your eyes. Have a great week!

  2. I had this same feeling this morning walking my little one to school...just doing the regular, day to day thing - but, being struck with how lucky we are...truly blessed. I love this painting. I think she may be one of my favorites. :)
