Honey in the Hive

Springer Spaniel

Not taking my life's blessings for granted has always been important to me. It has been a way to counter a negative act or feeling with something positive, which often would erase or at least put things in perspective for me.  Remembering even the little sweet things that happen puts me in a peaceful loved and loving frame of mind.

Rather than make this a task that must repeat each week or I'll feel guilty, not the way to go obviously!, you may find a post from time-to-time titled Honey in the Hive.  Those, like this one, will be my gratitude posts.

I am part of all who I have met - Cynthia Rutledge

For some time I've been wanting to give my thanks and kudos to the teachers I've had that started me on this path to creativity and addiction. This isn't about those un-sung heroes who encouraged me, praised me, and required me to pass their college prep classes many years ago. Those teachers played a part in who I am for sure. They were my saviors, along with my friends, during a difficult time in my childhood.
