Chapter 6 of the Artist Way project with Paula

Happiest Sunday to you all I have had a serious Artist Date today , a beautiful day to celebrate ending the Chapter 6 on Abundance . Chapter 6 of the Artist Way by Julia Cameron ,but the project by Paula at Happy Snappy.

The picture above is of what Dave and I call , " Our Girls !" My daughter & grandbaby . I don't see them all that much , but when I do , I cherish every moment I spend with them .

I realize while Im here writting about what my Artist date meaning of today was , I think to myself , there is alot of abundance in my life and I only get more of it when Im happy and learn to focus on that happiness and love every moment of it . Today my daughter needed to do a film project for a class assignment . Shes a film student at Cal-Arts here in Los Angeles. She came over for the weekend to film her project in the backyard . The subject our grandbaby Athena Rose . Athena dressed up in her favorite outfit. Too cute!

Athena was ready to be the Shirley Temple she could be ! She was a fairy and that was a part she could play very easy . So she got all dressed up & was ready for her mommy to film her. She's a real actress Athena is!

My life is full of abundance when Im reminded of the abundance looking at my grandaughter,dressed as the cute princess fairy with her pink zebra shorts & her ugg boots on walking through our desert land with the sun setting . Just looking at this is abundance looking right back at me.

My Krystal Rose , she always likes a difficult challenge in life , I guess she just likes to be challenged in life . She's a great filmmaker , she hasn't done much in a long time with her filmming , but now that she's back in school at Cal-Arts she's realizing she is full of abundance herself she's got a family who supports her very much . : )

This moment right here , completed my artist date . I knew I had alot to be thankful for . I am loved , I love , and we all love to help eachother out with our arts . Im glad as artists that all of us in my family , continue to support eachother in our arts and thats alot of remembering what is Abundance in my life .

Thanks for stopping by and listening to my story of Abundance for the Artist Way Project.

Until Next Time ,
Maryann k XOXO!
