little steps...

so, what did you do today to celebrate st. patty's day?
i headed over to some friends' house for lunch, beer, & painting... it was a great afternoon/evening!
i also used a bag [for art supplies] that i had not used in close to 2 years. odd sounding i know, but some deep, sentimental reasons it has not been emptied & used until today. i felt good about this little step. i put my new prismacolors & stabilios in there, along with a moleskine. sort of a re-christening.
i realize that each "little step" i take, walks me through the grief. i just need to keep moving, and today this is how i moved....


  1. I love this favorite part is..."today this is how i moved..." there is something magnificent in that :)

  2. Sammie, I'm new to your blog - but we were in Misty Mawn's online class together. Thank you for sharing your story. It's inspiring. Grief is not an easy thing..and there is no 'magic fix' unfortunately. You really do just have to 'move through it'. Praying for you and your family.
