Special Auction Today!! My Piece - In my Garden - The Thread of Love

In my Garden - The Thread of Love - Mixed Media on Canvas
size - 11x14 inches

I am so Happy to welcome you to my auction

 to Benefit the Sandy Hook Elementary School!


On December 14th, 2012, tragedy struck as 20

 innocent children and 6 brave adults lost their lives in the second deadliest shooting in American history...


Even though we are in March now I think about this tragedy almost every day. This has impacted me very much. To Think of what is going on in our Society today.

There is sooo much
 Hate today
beyond Hate is Anger
and Beyond Anger is

So many people are just in Survival Mode today
Some get so frustrated and full of Anxiety
they strike out in an Evil Way...

Many people today are just out for their own selves
They only see what will make them

Happy, richer, more satiated with Things to give them pleasure..

More, more, more!!

We have forgotten how to give to others. The good feeling that brings can really
outweigh many of our frustrations at times..

 what can we do to correct this in our World Today?

I have always believed in what I call

 "The Thread of Love"

When we as Good Human Beings can extend our hand to others in time of want and need..
Not just on a certain day or Christmas or when we are told to
But Everyday!
It doesn't have to be a big huge thing that we must do
Just a small gesture can be enough to pass on
"The Thread of Love"
When one person does good for another and then this person does something good for another 
and so on and so forth
Passing it on
we are extending this 

Thread of Love

Love is so strong it can overcome every obstacle I believe
It can overcome Evil
Though at times it might be very trying 
If we all can do a good thing for one person every day
we send out Energy of Love
It might be a friend, a stranger, a neighbor, a sibling or a family member
It Doesn't matter
Just so the positive Energy is flowing.

That I believe is the only way we are going to turn our world around

Can you just imagine if so many of us in this world would practice this Daily!
What Good Positive Energy would flow throughout the Universe!!

Okay I'll get off my Soapbox now. LOL
