GRATITUDE WEDNESDAY:

Gosh, today is only Wednesday? I feel this week is dragging like a snail, is that the case when you come back from vacation?

I have a lot to be grateful for but i'll only share what's most important for now:

* Mom who makes me feel her presence even if she's over 3000 miles away

* My brother calling me last night, wanting to spend the weekend to help around the house, how sweet!

* For the love of art, I'm learning more and more about the craft and loving every minute of it (my latest painting is proof I'm getting there)

* Orange salmon (pictured below), my favorite dish to make at home, the flavor is incredibly tasty. It goes great with whole wheat mac/cheese, brown rice and fried plantains, yummmmmy!!!

P.s. Paintings posted are for sale, feel free to email me for price

Mr. Bess: Some hot sauce over the salmon gives it a kick, I would love to read a gratitude list from you, been awhile. You too, enjoy your week

Miss Purl: Thank you, my sister is also an inspiration to my latest painting, she's been pushing me and giving me pointers

Omar: Again a delight to see you here and I've added you to my list :) i'll be visiting you quite often. Thank you for the sweet words

just when i thought i'd gotten over my emotional loss of being in Jamaica, i come to your site and am immediately moved to tears again. the pix are beautiful and reminded me of how i felt when i was there. in addition, the pix of the food made me immediately stop eating the egg drop soup and long for some 'yard' food, which i miss terribly. *sigh*

I don't know how you knew this, but I'm not surprised. This last week I was whispering to my daughter that she will always here the answer in the fluttering of leaves or the rush of waves turning.

Your painting is the essence of her, of me, of you.
