#ShareGratitude I am so very lucky — 34 Comments

  1. You do have a wonderful life, a great hubby and your cute puppy dogs. We live in a beautiful country.. Lovely post and photos.. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Oh Mary, you are living the life YOU WANT! What a fairy tale of sorts…you make art (it sure isn’t easy to life off of it) but you ARE living a richness that money can’t buy…oh how clichéd that sounds, but it is TRUE. Look at the nature around you! How I get so happy just to see bunnies in our yard, or finches nest in our trees! But moose, precious dogs and HORSES? OK, you captured the most fabulous photo of my favorite animal: THE HORSE. Mary, you have so much to be thankful for. Bless you and your dear man….and thank you kindly for coming to visit. Anita

    • Thanks Anita for the great words. We do have a magical life, and we love every minute of it. And the horses…..I was so lucky to get some awesome shots this year.

      • Hi Mary! So good to see your reply this morning in my email! Those horses, oh that gives me chills to see such wild life and your photography is pretty amazing to capture their speed and thunder in a click!

        Enjoy your week and happy Thanksgiving! Anita

  3. I think your life sounds very agreeable. As for the “stuff” in my house, I seem to be constantly arguing with myself that I don’t need most of it. Intellectually I KNOW I don’t! But what to do with all of it?! :))

    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  4. What a beautiful post. It is important to always remember what we are grateful for and when we think life stinks, think about others that are in much worse shape. Life is a live show and a wonderful gift to be thankful for.

  5. What a beautiful post. And so inspiring. No one ever died upset that they didn’t have another gadget. But I’m sure many of us will spend our last days thinking of wonderful times we spent with the ones we love.

  6. How neat that you get to travel around so much! That sounds like a very exciting and fulfilling way to live. You get to do what you love every day, surrounded by a wonderful husband and pups! That is definitely something to be grateful for. Love all of your photos – they are awesome!
    Thank you for joining in our #ShareGratitude blog hop!

  7. looks like you have such beautiful surroundings where you are in that particular photo, where was it? I can imagine living literally with nature very rewarding x

  8. You have so many amazing things to be grateful for! You get to see so many beautiful places and the “wilds” of our great nation. I am grateful that you choose to share those beautiful moments with us and let us live vicariously through you! Have a wonderful, wild-adventure of a Thanksgiving!

  9. You do have a wonderful life. I feel like I am really missing out when I see your photographs! But, I could never live in such close quarters with another person! Gah! At the very least, being unable to escape John’s snoring would be a real problem. LOL! Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. Such a simple way to put gratitude for life, “I am just grateful to be me.” You reminded me of a song I love… It’s from The Muppets, of course, the Wishing Song. I sing it whenever I am blue to remember all there is to be grateful for- “now most of all I know that I am happy to be me!” Thank you for joining the #ShareGratitude hop.

  11. I would say that is a LOT to be grateful for. I’m so envious of you and your lifestyle. But above all I’m happy that you are happy. :-)

  12. What a great life you have with your hubby and the pups! I totally get it. It’s my dream to retire someday, sell our house, and buy an RV. I’m not sure my hubby shares that dream though. That’s OK, I do love our home and we have a good life here.
    You are very lucky that you and Al are so talented and able to do what you do. Nothing is perfect, but if you are happy and grateful, that’s the most important thing!

  13. Really enjoy your photography-would like to purchase the horses photograph, but not savvy on where to look for prices. Checking on you from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation-ManuelaMaldonado

  14. Wonderful things to be grateful for… and to live such an adventure together – what a ride!

  15. It’s a wonderful life indeed! I’m sure there are lots of folks who would find my life so boring, but I love it. Who cares what others think? It’s a wonderful thing to be loving the life you’re living! :)

  16. Oh Mary! What an awesome post!! Happy Birthday to your husband!! I just love each and every picture you have shared. I am grateful to have met you through Blogville!! Happy Thanksgiving!! Jeanne, Chloe and LadyBug

  17. Beautiful post and incredible photos! Not gonna lie, some of them brought tears to my eyes, the horse photo mostly. What an incredible experience that must have been! I think the way you’re living your life is very beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing and joining the hop! Happy Thanksgiving!
