A is for Abundance

Abundance.......kewl word, huh?....I love that it has the word "dance" in it.....cause when I have an abundance of...whatever....I do a happy dance....sometimes just on the inside, cause I don't want to embarrass my kids!

When you think about the word "abundance" , what image or emotion comes to mind? For me, its love.......love for my husband and our 5 kids( 4 boys 1 girl) and my 2 daughters-in-laws and soon -to-be son-in-law, our 3 granddaughters and a new grandson due in July!, my 2 dogs and my "grandfurbaby", my dear friends, for my health, my home, ...well, you get the picture.....

oh, yes, and ofcourse the faeries!!....I always have an abundance of them around before "show time" when they fly off to new homes...they bring me an abundance of joy as I create them...this wee one is named "Autumn", my favorite time of the year....
I guess what I am trying to say is that when you focus on what you DO have, instead of what you lack...and be Thankful for all - good things will come to you. My continual prayer that I say all day long is simply "Thank You God'...TYG! (I write that on each and every faerie that I create)
With a Grateful Heart,
Coleen

  5. Oh my gosh,Colleen! You are the closest blogger to me that I know! Wow! How exciting. Do you make these dolls? They are the sweetest things I've ever seen!

    Great story about the tile by the way. Did that creep you out at all? I wouldn't be bothered by it one bit. :)

  9. Hi Coleen, Wise words, and heartfelt. We all need to hear positive affirmations. There is so much negative in the world, so thank you. I hope to share my abundance with whom ever crosses my path.
    Your faeries are so sweet. Thanks for sharing them.
    My art doll class with Joanna at Mosshill is going very well. It's the first of this kind of art I've done, so its very exciting. Thank you for responding to my blog.
