I know that a lot of people love Christmas, and while it definitely has some wonderful happy moments, moments spent with family and friends, There are times when I find myself feeling a bit blue. At those times I get mad at myself because I am fortunate to have my sister and her husband and my 3 wonderful nieces. I have a warm home and a job that I like and I am surrounded by my furry "kids". I am healthy and I am able to "create" in my spare time. There are so many people in the world that are having such a difficult time. I'm so lucky that I have some WONDERFUL friends, some of who I have never actually met! These are people that I "visit" through our blogs. I love to escape into their worlds and marvel at their creations. I am so happy to be able to chat with such talented artists! I love that I am able to talk with others who understand the need to paint, make dolls, plant flowers and love their pets.
But try as I might, there are still those days when a sadness settles over me. Today was one of those days. The sky is heavy with the coming snow, I'm feeling overwhelmed with everything I need to get accomplished for the coming holidays and to be honest, I was remembering people in my life that have passed on and who I miss terribly.
SO! it's been a real bummer kind of day and then Colleen leaves me a comment on my last post to go to her blog.
OMG! My eyes filled with eyes and my head was swimming with happiness! On her blog http://loopyboopy.blogspot.com/ was an unbelievable post about ME! Me and my blog and my dog Blue and how we are friends via blogs and in the Spirit of Giving she is giving me this fantastic doll named Rachelle! I can NOT believe her kindness! She knows that I think that she is the God-dess of all doll makers! I have told her that I bow to her greatness! I am constantly amazed at every doll she has created. I love how her mind works (and that it has a bit of a twist! LOL!) There are angels on earth! She was there to pull my spirit up when I really needed it. And she is giving me a gift that I will cherish and look upon everyday and think of the moment that MADE this holiday for me. I'M SO HAPPY!
