Aloooooha, my sista from another Mother
can you feel my gratitude tears rolling down my cheeks? You know I was thinking this morning as I was showering about how this new world of lovely,intelligent,kind, talented and very generous women have come into my sphere of influence. I have concluded that this has everything to do with the Law of attraction and
also recognizing great Human Beings. I have to say I feel very honored to be amongst the quality Women I have come in contact with, you my sweet friend are ....well....Amazing. Somehow that doesn't quite explain my feelings but it comes close. I see some really wonderful times ahead. Mahalo for allowing me into your world and sharing mine with me.
Mahalo for including me in your blog on the top ten!! Who knows...with more outstanding women such as you...maybe we can change the WORLD?
All my Aloha
Thanks for visiting me and all your kind words. They were very encouraging to me. I can't imagine what it is like to lose a parent. It's hard enough to see my friends hurting. I like your list here. It makes me happy too. I quite visual, so all the pictures make me happy. I love tea, and chocolate and magazines and sunshine and comments and kisses too.

You're a sweety for thinking of me, Gail. I love the list...great pictures too...your blog is growing as I knew it would. Congrats!!!

We had tornadoes come through our area... so I shut down my computer due to power surges, I am sorry it took me so long to get here.
Off to paint now...and thank you again.
