true appreciation

 Prompt: Appreciate. What's the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it?
 come on...one thing i appreciate the most?! i appreciate soooooooo many things! but i guess the first thing that popped into my head was this: i am so absolutely grateful for all the support,lovely comments,new friendships,clients,fans,well wishers and kind words i receive. I've been building this awesome community these past few years and it just lifts me to no end. 
i've talked about this before here but this ties into why i feel so much appreciation. my father never once supported me as an artist...in fact, really quite the opposite and so it seems like my whole adult life i spent turning to one man or another to emotionally and mentally support me as an artist. well...it's never worked out as you can imagine, as i was looking outside of myself. now that i've been working hard at being my own head cheerleader, this awesome support has welled up from so many different sources...it's that pushing against stuff again! once i let it go and supported myself, then this lovely community of people sprouted up...and that's one of SO many things i am completely grateful for!!
...ohhhh...and how i express it.i write everyone that writes me as soon as i can,i give away a lot of art to people,friends and animal organizations and i also am a great cheerleader for other peoples dreams.
