~October Blessings and Prayers~

Fall is so beautiful here in the midwest. Although there's a chill in the air, the brilliant colored leaves on the trees make it SO worth knowing that winter is on its heels.

~Heaven welcomed a new angel yesterday: my dear Uncle Augie, my mom's brother. God decided to take him home, very unexpectedly yesterday morning. I can just imagine the celebrations there as he was greeted by other family members. Our family will celebrate his life this week.

~We're half-way through October, and so far..... no pneumonia for this gal. Blessings for sure~

~Missing and NOT missing Art Shows! Small blessings, for sure when I realize that these last two outdoor shows who many of my artist friends still participate in were VERY cold and rainy~

~Grateful that now Katie comes very regularly...and Fannie will be coming along with her quite soon.

~Thankful, again, that on these crisp fall days, I can do business tasks and studio time in my jamas. (a huge THANK YOU, Lord)~

~Enjoying cups of hot apple cider (spiced, from Trader Joe's) and mugs of hot Pumpkin Spice coffee....hmmmmmm good~

~Secure in knowing that my kids and grandkids are safe and happy living good lives. We are ALL so blessed. Again: THANK YOU, Lord~

~Sweater and Poncho weather is upon us!! Yippeee~

Rosie and I are off to the studio. Have an October Monday filled with prayers and blessings~ Carol and Rosie xo

Fall is a beautiful time to reflect on blessings, isn't it?
I'm sorry to hear about your Uncle Augie's (Augie was my grandpa's name too) passing. Prayers for you and your family!
