Monday Musings Challenge

Mondays are always hard for me. I'm tired from the weekend's activities, I seem to have so much on my mental list to do, that it seems like I won't get art time this week. I'm sitting here staring at the girls doing their schoolwork (homeschooled we are) and thinking how precious and brief life is. How we must take what we're given and run with it. God has blessed me.

I had a 'Monday' thought. Instead of thinking on Mondays that I won't get art time this week, I'm going to make a goal. On Mondays I will post a 'musing', saying or quote and make a goal to create a piece of artwork for that topic. I challenge the 2 people who read my blog (and any others that stumble across my echo chamber) to join me. Comment on this post when you have a piece of artwork in this theme to share, by Sunday night. Next Monday I'll post with a list of everyone's artwork (with links to it), and post a new musing. Come on, it will be fun! Everyone needs a goal. *wink*

Here goes. Since I'm feeling blessed today, we'll do 'BLESSINGS'. Here are some sayings to get you started in the right direction:

"Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference.They bless the one who receives them,and they bless you,the giver.” - Barbara DeAngelis
"God bless the roots! Body and soul are one.” - Theodore Roethke
"The person who can bring the spirit of laughter into a room is indeed blessed.” - Bennet Cerf
“A friend is one with whom you are comfortable, to whom you are loyal, through whom you are blessed, and for whom you are grateful.” - William Arthur Ward
Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken.” - Albert Camus
“Art is essentially the affirmation, the blessing, and the deification of existence” - Friedrich Nietzsche

"Blessed are we who can laugh at ourselves, for we shall never cease to be amused." - unknown
