I would rather read and see simple posts about moments of gratitude than the rants and rages that many people share without a second thought.
I have loved the focus on gratitude that I have been findng this month, and have joined in where I felt like it and will continue to do so.
Let's keep the focus on what is right and what is good. It is what will continue to guide us through the chaos and extreme challenges of this life.
Huge hugs to you, Artist lady !


Oh you are very kind, Paula, and more forgiving than I would've been. I don't belong to groups much anymore for this reason. There are always people (in every group, for all time, even, if you can believe it, in my husband's fishing group, I think it's just a part of the group dynamic) who like to complain and stir up trouble. Certainly I don't know what the group rules are, but still.

Your posts about gratitude are very rich indeed, never trite or banal. I love knowing the story behind the butterfingers and there is a certain delight I take in reading about everyday things, like a candy bar, elevating a person - after all we are surrounded by such things, and to stop and notice and find gratefulness in that is no small gift. Again, you are very generous and kind, but it distresses me to see anyone taking the wind out of your sails.

Bless you. I look forward to more stories about Butterfingers and sunsets and glorious skies. xoxo


Paula this post hit deeply with me on so many levels. I admire your ability to step back and reflect before reacting. Groups are such an interesting dynamic and I try to approach them with the old saying "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." I am not sure of the specifics of this group and do appreciate that you looked it from a different angle, but I feel with social media people are so quick to judge and speak harshly. It makes me a bit sad. But you, oh my you really rose above. Awesome. You totally rock! xo

Paula, Please don't let Them discourage you from blogging. I've read and enjoyed your blog for a couple of years now, and see no reason you should be ashamed of it.
Some people just have to complain--it really has nothing to do with you, they're just cranky people who have too much time on their hands. Please don't let the b******* put you down!
Hoping to see more of your adventures, and best wishes for the holidays, Nancy
