I am grateful that I feel good today. Every day is a gift, and I see you are a great example of that. I was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer four years ago, and that has been a gift, as I am a kinder, gentler person because of it. I love expressing my journey through a mixed media healing journal, and you have have been an inspiration for freeing my art. Thank you.

katrina koltes said...

So happy for who got a chance to win today!
Today I am thankful because you are giving me this chance to win a spot in yor course. When I first saw your paintings, the expression and the beauty and your use of colors I thought "I wish I could paint like that". See ive always been a perfectionist, I started off as a mural artist, and painting trompe l'oeil which you need to be very exact, so that kind of hinders me to just trust the mess and let it flow. I realized when I got your book that you really help people do just that and I was so pulled by your art. It looks so spontaneous and full of life! I come from a big family of 8 kids where my mom and dad did full time missionary work all during the years I grew up, most of us were born in SEA and so money was never really available for art supplies but I learned where I could and used what I found and always tried to make the best of the situation. When I was 17 and wanted to go to art university as soon as high school was done my dad and mom split up and so especially with all the kids to look after the last thing we could do was university, I just starte working instead to help my mom out. In these last years now that I'm a woman, I really feel like soaking up and learning everything I can, I can't afford your class but I am so grateful for this opportunity and you generosity in giving me and others this wonderful chance. Thank you!

Shirley said...

Today, I'm grateful for my doctor who is helping me find the right meds to help me overcome my depression and anxiety. I've had this a number of years, and the meds I take lose their potency after about a year, then I have to start over again. I have a new Dr, maybe the meds she prescribes for me will last longer this time, I am only now starting to feel better, like myself and am looking forward to get back on track when they have fully taken affect.

Victoria Burgess said...

Nina Owens said...

I am thankful for the much needed inspiration your blog and emails provide. I've been in a creative slump lately and need something to jump start my artistic soul again. Thank you for the opportunity.

Stephanie Fry said...

I am grateful for those women in my life who have taught me that it’s okay to be myself, flaws and all. We are not meant to be perfect on this earth, we are meant to be whole. I think the more we are true to who we are and light the way for allowing ourselves to really shine in our own authenticity, we will shed our shell of what we think we should be or what others think we should be. To stand in our truth is essential to really being happy inside. I am grateful to finally feel okay with who I really am.

LKH said...

Thankful I found you on instagram!

katrina koltes said...

Beautiful photos, thank you for sharing!
Today I am thankful for miracles.. Because without miracles we might still be lost on the mountain.. Yesterday was our last day here in Austria, we hiked up to a mountain hut then were going to walk along the peak path to the cable cars, but somewhere along the way we got lost and ended up on another path going into the mountain, which was all of the sudden a cliff with a straight drop down on one side, what all we could do was go forward. I was so scared the whole time crossing the tiny little path all along the mountain where one step wrong would make you fall into nothing. I don't know how we did it but we got across, only to realize we were completely and Utterly lost and there was no one about? Just us and the mountains, and it was already 5 pm...all I could do was pray that a miracle would happen. As soon as I did I saw a car driving on the path out of nowhere with a guy inside saying "hey you guys lost?" And he brought us to the nearest town and called us a taxi to take us back to the town we were staying. I'm convinced he was an angel, he came out of nowhere and just when we thought we'd be stuck in the mountain alone all night... I am grateful to be here back safe.

Andi said...

An angel indeed!! What a great little miracle.

Andi said...

The photos do say it all! Thanks for sharing them. Dare i say, a few others of us would love to be at that table with you. Joy to all!!

Kim Mailhot said...

Omg! I am so excited! And grateful! I can't wait to join the Paint Mojo online family of artists and play along! Thank you so much Tracy! I am turning 50 in October and you have inspired me to think how I can give gifts of myself too! Oh you have inspired me in so very many ways. I am so grateful.
Enjoy every second of those glorious French adventures! Bizous, ma Cherie, et merci mille fois!!!

I am grateful for my husband, who has taken me on an incredible journey for the last 36 years, who indulged me with a room to play and never questions my need for supplies, and will pick up junk off the ground because he knows I will find a use for it.

lovingrd said...

Thanks again for sharing your heart and adventure, Tracy! Today, I'm thankful that I'm able to be home with my children and home school. I'm thankful that my husband also works from home (though in a very demanding role as computer programmer for the same company for almost 10 years now!). I'm thankful for the memories of my momma's love... even though her grandkids weren't all as fortunate to have much time with her, because it shines on, in, and through me at times. And, hard as it is, I'm thankful for the new love in my dad's life 5 years after my mom passed that loves the grandkids dearly. Life is bittersweet, yet it is amazing and full of wonder and love. I much prefer to celebrate the sweet! ;) Smiles, Julia from lovingrd@yahoo.com

Susan Goodell said...

I am thankful today for the tiny tree frog I saw climbing up my window screen last night. He was about the size of a dime and he was the most adorable little fella I've ever seen. I sat and watched him for about 20 minutes, something I definitely wouldn't have done when I was younger. I remember my mom telling me to take time to notice the beauty around me and this was definitely one of those times.

Godfrey Omoifoh said...

Good news!!! Hello everyone. I hope you all having a good day, I'm very happy with this, so I want everyone to know what Dr. Solution (completesolutionhome@gmail.com) did for me and my family. I was having a happy and peaceful marriage with two children over 5 years. My husband was too lovely and caring. But things got sour when my husband started neglecting me and coming home late at night. I never knew he was having an affair with another woman, stopped paying attention to me and the children. It was really devastating and heartbreaking seeing love drifting away from your family. I complained to a friend of mine who introduced me to one Dr. Solution, who helped her some time, but I doubted it, because I never believed in voodoo or spell casting but because I was desperate, i gave it a try. I contacted him, told him everything, he said will help me save my husband and my marriage. I did and provide whatever required for this and voila!!! He did it!!! My husband came home one night crying, apologizing. It was like a miracle, like he was bewitch before. I'm so happy he helped saved my marriage, thanks to Dr. Solution.

Don't suffer when there is solution. You can contact him via: completesolutionhome@gmail.com

People are being evacuated from their homes. Now, hopefully the rain will stay for a few days, and those people affected will be able to go home. The news has shown pictures of our deer,bears also being affected. Thank you.

Catherine Nugent said...

I'm also celebrating my 50th birthday this month on the 21st(!!) and am so grateful to have made it this far. Just a year ago things were looking very bleak health wise. Thankful to have a great team of alternative health professionals that provide me with the resources to turn my health around when others were focused on trying to get me to accept extreme limitations and a life of pain and disability. So looking forward to this next decade!! Hoping to emulate a similar adventure to the one you're currently on! :-) Thanks for being an inspiration!

MarieV said...

Kim Kahari said...

I so grateful that I overcame my fear yesterday: i was excercising in the forrest om know trails. By half way I had to visit a bush ;-) off the trail, after that.... I was lost....I came out on a higly located spot whith a long and winding road leading downwards. Was I going thatway or back? I was totally alone, no signs but hey isn't there a half naked on a bicycle slowly fighting his way upward the road? Yea, and beautiful to! With a smile deadly as napalm and the bike is not a regular one but a tandem one! He insisted of giving me a ride and I had to overcome my fear and glide on that bike and off we went! Downwards, fast, fast...a sharp turn ooooiiiiiiieee! Into a narrow gate onto another slope...he let me off when I wanted to smiled his napalm smile and off he went. I was grateful, safe and merry and a good memory richer :-)

I am so grateful for my vision that I can see the beautiful miracles God has created all around me - it's so easy to take the gift of vision for granted and I am very aware of how much I treasure it.

Dear Tracy, after having a mess of a day yesterday, I woke up this morning with such gratitude for the friends that I have who are my chosen family. Somehow I have ended up with people that support me no matter what, and that love me and appreciate me. Your course in Melbourne opened up my heart to see how supportive and strong women can be, and now I am noticing that I have a few really, really great friends. So, I am grateful for them, and for your class that I took that helped soften me up a bit. Life is wonderful :) :) :)

Karen rapport totally blessed xo

Today I am ashamed to say I have not done a good job with feeling grateful. I have gotten so caught up in the series of things that have gone wrong today that I have forgotten to focus on what has gone right. Right now I am very grateful for this drawing because it has reminded me of all my blessings and reminded me to be grateful for each and every one of them. Thank you!

I am grateful to be here today again to witness
amazing wonders. Walking along the beach
tonight, the sun setting in glorious flames
of gold, red, orange, pink; all the hues reflected
in inky still waters quietly being
carried along.
