Mindful: These birds have much to sing about

Thankful: These birds have much to sing about

The clouds over Birmingham have been raining nearly each day since Christmas! I’m over the moody skies, drizzles on my windshield, the pile of umbrellas stacking up in my car and … my hair frizzies!

After a week of rainy days in the upper 60s, last week, Birmingham was graced with a blanket of 1″-3″ of snow! Then, oddly enough, today I was back in shorts and a t-shirt when I took my dog for a walk this morning. With the sun shinning bright today, I actually became more aware of the blessings that currently surround my life and a spirit of thankfulness ensued! (Yes, my emotions are affected by the weather; it’s amazing what a little bit of sun can do for my soul!!)

Last year, I gave myself the challenge of  10 Friday Thanks. Each Friday, I wrote down 10 things that I was thankful for from the week I had just experienced. I think I’m going to start doing this again; it is never a bad thing to be mindful of blessings.

Meanwhile, enjoy this painting I did for a couple who recently married. These birds have much to sing about; do you?! I’d love to know what you are thankful for today!
