We had out of state family visit and enjoyed showing them the beauty of New Mexico, Balloon Fiesta, the bosque area and hiking along the Rio Grande as well as sampling local favorite foods and buying some chili to take back with them.
I dabbled with fun artwork while thinking about serious issues and problems friends deal with. Here is some artwork I did taking a break from my favorite oil paintings and in trying to convey my love and concern for family and friends.
Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised to receive an unexpected gift from my brother of some gourmet chocolate dipped strawberries. I feel so blessed, loved and appreciated and grateful to have all the family and friends I do.
We are moving into my favorite time of the year and celebrations of life, love, thanksgiving and relationships. My husband and I will celebrate 30 years of marriage next month and with that marriage brought to me the gift of a daughter and a group of people who have helped me grow into a more loving, kinder person. I just want to thank my husband and the Gomez family for all their love and support all these years.
