Okay first and foremost I am blessed. I have had so many wonderful get well responses that it would take me FOREVER to respond too all of them. But know that I read each one and with that I get a little better everyday! I am feeling so much better and my spirit can't help but fly for a few reasons.

First I have a BIG announcement to make but I want to do a painting that goes along with it and seeing how I still have some sitting issues it will have a wait a week or so.

Second IT IS CHRISTMAS. Big hugs, smooches, and a very merry Christmas to you and yours. How could you not feel well on Christmas! Beleive me a day or two ago I was struggling and wasn't in the Christmas mood. The wind from my sails were gone and with this special day being shadowed by me and many of my loved ones falling ill it was hard for me to embrace that not every year can be the best, but it is all in how you make it.

It is 6am here in NY and I just had to get up. On this most joyous of day I still wake up like a bright eyed child staring at a tree loaded with goodies. This year is different for me. First off I already recieved my biggest and greatest gift (which goes alone with my BIG annoucement....coming soon) But this is my first year with very few monetary gifts. Since I and my mother were sick (the two who do all the shopping) There will be very little packages adorning our very little tree. But I am very okay with this. Christmas isn't about the gifts and being as sick as I have been I have learned it is who is around you on this day that ultimately counts. A day to be spent with those you love. To share a laugh and a hug. Christmas is the magic of believeing that this days means to you whatever you would like it to mean. And on this day I couldn't feel anymore love in the world.

And as an extension of my family thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support, your magic, your inspiration, your kindness, your wisdom, and you love. May this Christmas be magical for you and your loved ones.

OH AND IT IS MY 100TH POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know kind of ironic that it falls on Christmas. Almost like it is a gift in itself. Thank you all for sticking with me and following/reading my blog. Your comments keep me going and give me the inspiration I need to continue.

Love with big Christmas Smooches,
