I'm always excited to see the new Dare from Erin at 'The Bright Owl' and love the links to everyone's contributions on Mister Linky! It's an excellent widget...
I am usually a 'cup half-full' sort of person but I have had such moments of sadness over the Christmas break due to the death of my dog, Darwin, and I'm really having to take stock and accept that he's gone and won't come back, ever. We had a few tears as the children left for school yesterday morning and he wasn't there watching them go...or waiting when they came back but we are now able to talk about giving a home to another (as yet, unwanted) pup as Darwin was a few years ago. And we will do soon.
In the meantime, I know I have such a lot to be grateful for - not least being a mum, according to my daughter!! She's absolutely right. I have put just four words into the centre of my Zendala this week - Love, Health, Family, Home - but the list goes on, of course. The tangles around the words contain all my gratitude for having found Zentangle. My four first ever tangles make the corner parts, with a selection of my favourites after that. These include:
Betweed; Mooka; Clams and Cockles, Paradox; Tipple; Bales; Florz; Huggins; Cuboid; Myst; Raindotty; Aah; Diva; Crescent Moons; Hollibaugh; Verdigogh; Heartstrings. All nailed down!
So yes, very grateful.
***And very grateful to Annemarie over on Anne's Tangle Blog for pointing out to me yet again, that I posted a loopy link on Erin's Mister Linky that didn't bring you here, but just went back to Erin....oh dear, must concentrate!
