"I've learned that people will forget
what you said, people will forget
what you did, but people will never
forget how you made them feel."

This week at work I worked with a mentally and physically challenged woman. I think this is the FIRST time that I really felt like I was doing what I was suppose to be doing. She thanked me in her way - very childlike - BUT I really should have thanked her for the privilege to help her. What a wonderful feeling it gave me - and her MOM was an incredible women. Thank you GOD, for letting me meet these two amazing women. I hope that our paths will cross again!!!

Does anyone else get their inspiration at the bookstore? I can wander around for hours, looking at magazines and books for all my art ideas!!! I have found great inspiration in looking through the gardening magazines, Somerset Studio magazines and decorating magazines. I find flowers, children and animals that are screaming to be painted. The colors in the magazines and the beautiful photographs are also a source in inspiration. SOOOO after an evening of cruising the bookstore - I AM READY -to get to painting.

Do you ever wonder why you are in a certain place at a certain time. Do you wonder why God has called you to do the things he does. I KNOW we are not to question the situations that he puts before us - but I still tend to struggle with God in the WHYS??? This week all I know is that I have put my WHYS? aside and asked HOW! I have hit my knees in prayer more this week than I ever have. Asking HOW!!! I know that he doesn't give us more than we can handle, but this time i'm not as sure that I am this strong, but I ALSO know through him all things are possible. SO I pray that he gives me the words, strength and courage to face this day!!!
