Grateful and Happy

I have thousands of reasons to be grateful and happy. I’m sooo grateful! I don’t want to bother you telling you the huge list of thanks I repeat on my mind during the whole day… it’s long ;) BUT today I want to share with you 2 GREAT reasons for being GRATEFUL and HAPPY.

1.) Finally the printable PDF calendars are ready on my shop! Sounds silly, but I was worry about finish this project before today because… (read reason #2)

2011 Printable Calendars

2.) My sister is coming from Venezuela to visit me!!! and I guess I will be busy for a few days! I don’t think I can’t explain how I’m feeling right now. I absolutely love love love my siblings. Unfortunately we live miles away to each other :( My sister Andreina lives in Amsterdam, my sister Clementina live in Venezuela and my bother Manuel lives in Chile… hmmmm…. I miss those guys way to much (my eyes are tearing just writing this)

Soooo… my sister Clementina is coming tomorrow to visit me. I LOVE that girl. She is one of my favorite people in the world. She rocks. She has been my moral support since the day I came to US. We write emails to each other EVERY SINGLE DAY. She is always there to hear my happy or sad news. She is there every time I need to vent. She is there to celebrate every milestone in my life. She is there to support and give me strength when I falling. She is who I contact every time I think in something silly/funny because I know she is the only one who is going to understand me. She is my #1 fan (ok, she and Mr. Harper). She is extremely funny… And I haven’t seen my sister in almost 8 YEARS.

I can’t wait until tomorrow morning…

Can you feel my happiness???

8 years is way too long! I love my family too, and I couldn't imagine being away from them for so long. Enjoy your sister's visit! (And I love the calendars, by the way!)

These calenders are wonderful. Your art sings with happiness and is such a pleasure to have around.

Enjoy hanging out with your sister. Eight years is way too long to not see someone you adore.

Be grateful for everything everyday and cherish those you love. You inspire others. You tell them to be grateful and to cherish others. My daughter lives in LA and that is not Venezuela or Chili, but I see her in November and I have not seen her in a year, so I know how you feel. Tremendous love

Somehow my comment didn't go through, so I'll try again, never best the second time around, here goes -- you are grateful. you are loving. You make others grateful and loving. Cherish it. Spread it around. My daughter I have not seen in over a year. Will see her in November. She is in LA, so I can't imagine Venezuela and Chili and eight years. Triumpant!
