A MAN OF COURAGE
As we rode through summer breezes
The man of courage and I
He taught me still another lesson
As he had since I was just so high
For the years had left their burden
And now he walked with a cane
And the body once strong and strapping
Now faltered and gave much pain
I heard him not once complaining
As we passed fields of grain on our drive
But commenting on God’s bounty and sunshine
Saying “It’s a good day to be alive”.
Now, when I’m feeling sorry
For the problems and troubles I’ve had
I look to my model of courage
With humble gratitude....I love you, Dad!
I have a little slate in my kitchen on which I've written "Count Blessings. Choose Happy". It's the lesson I learned long ago from my father, who found something good in every day. Thank you for stopping by!

"Ophelia" is the challenge this week at TMTA (Think Monday, Think ATC). This ATC features Ophelia as seen by the artist Anna Lea Merritt. I'm partial to her pensive look. She's thinking of Hamlet, no doubt! Poppy is courtesy of Natali Designs at ScrapbookGraphics.
Incidentally, I learned entries with black background fade into the black background of my blog, and need a white border to differentiate them!!

Indiana Altered Arts group is having an Altered Altoid Tin swap tomorrow. On the left is the inside of the tin, on the right the lid. This is my first try at altering a tin. I need to learn how to treat the tin outside. There's so much about art I don't know! What I do know is that I love to do it!
