I know that I have been whining all week, but head colds do that to me. I am not good when I 'm sick. Truly, I have so much to be thankful for. This beautiful child is my daughter and I have been lucky enough to be married to the hot guy below for 23 years.
We had an amazing vacation in New York this year
I get to take my daughter to work
I have the very best girlfriends
My work has introduced me to these fierce people that are recovering from unfortunate events in their lives and they have showed me how to be stronger
I get to work with kids like this who also make me stronger, just seeing how happy they are in spite of some adverse circumstances in many of their lives. They made this totem and gave it to the kid's center in Siler City that takes such good care of them
and I have work that brings all kinds of amazing people into my life, such as my friend and storyteller Braima Mowai, who has worked with me on several occasions with the kids
and these crazy people who helped and inspired me this year at Arrowmont to make my pottery better
I got some great pieces out of the wood firing
and this is the view from my bedroom. Who could ask for more. I am truly blessed. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. I am cooking for 15 and still have no heat and a head full of snot, so I probably won't be posting any blogs until all is under control here. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
