Thankful for

I’ve received so many good wishes, kind words, strong hugs, prayers and blessings from you all that I’m starting to wonder what I ever did to be so blessed. It’s been 10 days since I made the call to my Landlord. He even called back to see if a reduction in my lease could help. It’s not enough to save me but how very kind to offer when I know he, himself, is suffering in health. For me, the first 2 days were very painful and I thank all of you for pulling me along and through it when I know darn well you have your own worries. Jamie, my dear Friend, was there every step. She was brave enough to tell the kids in her art class while I wailed like a baby on the porch. I just could not face them…wimp that I am. She said they took it like troopers. We have since decided we may be able to teach them at my home and all the parents seem to like the idea… so we may just see how it goes. Tonight, my neighbor actually rolled his barbeque up the stairs and cooked me a fresh halibut dinner! I had to laugh at the “Monkey Wine” he brought and I even had a tiny bit though I can’t drink at all. Monday, I was so surprised to get a call from Vicki Wolf, our recycled jewelry artist. She said ” I hear that Massimos has the best food in town” and I was dumbfounded to realize she was downstairs, in the restaurant below the gallery. (She lives in Arizona and I’d never met her in person). Such is the kindness I’ve been shown these days. Whatever you see out in the world, I can tell you that there are some really good people …and I plan to band together with them and ride this out. Whatever is happening around you, please stay positive, if you can. Take hugs when you can get them…and make sure to pass them out. There are many things to be thankful for and I, for one, am grateful to know people like you.

  1. I’m thankful for people like you out in the world, Heather. You deserve all the well wishes and prayers that are coming your way. Your generosity is coming back to you, and will continue to come back to you in countless ways as you move through this tough time. I know you are strong. I believe in you. Thinking of you today. Sending a ginormous hug. 8)

  2. I too am thankful for you!! Even though I’ve net met you personally, it’s very nice knowing you in the blogosphere. I think you are a very special lady!!! I love your blog. 🙂

    Huge virtual hug from me to you!! I am staying positive for you and your husband. Oh, and I think teaching the kids at your home is a GREAT idea. Have a great day and Easter weekend.

  3. BIG HUGS back at ya Ladies! Everybody needs to hang tough through all this negative stuff going on. Take care of yourselves, your Families, your Friends and your neighbors. We’re on an “E” ticket ride…but we’re on it together. We need to hang on tight, maybe scream on the downhill…but in the end…we’re all going come out of the tunnel intact and allot wiser…and no doubt learn what’s really important.

    My Love to you both! H

  4. Thank you for the welcome when we just dropped in with no advance warning So glad to have met you and experienced your B-utiful studio first hand. I was delighted to get to meet you (you are SO charming in emails and snail mail). My son thought your studio was the best he’d ever seen! I had a dream last night that I ran into you and you had NOT closed the studio and it was running full tilt. Take from that what you will. I believe it means “good things on the horizon!”. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers….. love to you- Vicki

  5. Ah, I love that neighbor! Cooking you halibut at your doorstep. Gosh, Californians really are nice, aren’t they!?

    I agree with QM. You’ve got loads of karma out there, girl. You are going to be gettin’ for many years to come, even if you did not one more generous thing in your life (although, knowing what I know of you, and a person gets to know another person pretty intimately through their writing and blogging, you’ll be racking up good karma for the rest of your days).
