Wow, I am 56 years old - well, technically not until 8:42pm this evening, but I am going to enjoy
the day fully. It's funny, I am REALLY happy right now. I may not be the perfect size, there may be things I want to accomplish that I haven't, but I am healthy, and my family is healthy, and that's all that matters. I love the quote, "Just to be is a blessing...just to live is holy."
I LOVE Christmas - today I'm getting my tree, meeting up with my daughters, art store, maybe a favorite thrift store, exercise, maybe going to dinner or having dinner in. Tomorrow we'll decorate the tree, then do massive amounts of shopping over the next two weeks (well, not too massive). Then on Christmas Eve, we'll put up luminarias, get some tamales, and just hang out and enjoy the season. I want to thank everyone for all the wonderful birthday wishes I got when I opened up my computer! I LOVE you all - family, friends, collectors, you make my life complete. I'm going to capture the day on camera, so I'll post some photos tonight. Bye!


  1. Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Happy Birthday Dee ..... isn't it wonderful to be in that peaceful and pretty much content state of mind. And then to see your wonderful talent and gifts so appreciated, acknowledged and sought after, what more could an artist want???? Hope your day and the holidays & year ahead be even more fulfilling, successful & enjoyed. Love you, Jo Anne
