Giving Hope For A New Year!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on January 1, 2012 by dianaswonderworks

 

Well, for all of you, hoping you had a wonderful New Years Eve! Hoping this new yer brings all the beauty, success and love you seek. For those of you who don’t know, I am an artist, trying to make my way in life, with my art. I recently lost my job, an opportunity to make my life the life I want now waits for me. I also, an\m new to the area, where I am beginning this new phase in my life. A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting a very nice woman, with five children. She is a single Mom, and the father is on the west coast. He is not helping with these children, obviously in a day to day way. I honestly don’t know his role at this time. I have been too busy trying to help her get focused and stay true to her dreams. I would rather her not dwell on things that will only bring her sadness or resentment.

Anyway, through our talks she was finally making the movement forward to get her life on track. She was working, lost her job, not much of a loss, since she was not getting a head anyway. She had made the decision to move. As of January first, she was going to stay with her mother in Maine, so she could save some money and get back on her feet. So far, so good. Yesterday (December 31, 2011), was her last day to move, and she left for Maine to make the last of her runs. It was cold, and the roads were covered in black ice. I am uncertain of the details just yet. She lost control of the vehicle and it through her from the vehicle, causing (so far as I know) two broken vertebrae. I will be sure to update you on any information as I get it. To say the least, she will not be working anytime soon. Five children is a lot of groceries and bills.

I made a decision last night to do all I could to help her and her family. She is lucky to be alive, and I do not want pity for her. I just want to help her get back on her feet, those children need her. My hope is to send you an opportunity to help. I am starting a new site today on Facebook. It is called Art For A Dollar$ (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Art-For-A-Dollar), it will be a page, to go and join a dollar raffle to win a piece of art (prints), by the artists who make them. As a side note, we were going to sell prints as well, for those who just wanted to purchase. From these purchases, my associate and I have agreed to give 50% of all direst sales profits, to Kim and her family. We want to help her and her family get through this tough time, and heal, so their futures can be brighter than ever. Starting the new year with joy would make a huge difference for them. We have a chance to take a tragic moment, and turn it into something glorious. I want to be part of that. I am hoping you do to.

Please look us up on Facebook, or send me a message here. Be happy to take donations, or make arrangements to sell you some artwork, to make this a reality for the whole family. Please come check us out, watch for any new updates. I will be sure to mention Kim in the title, so it is easy to spot. Haven’t checked my lottery today, so not sure of that outcome. It would be such a blessing to make my dreams come true as well. Keeping you posted, sending love to you and all you love for a new year, love diana

Love Lives On!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 8, 2011 by dianaswonderworks

 

Well, hello to you all today! Was just thinking today about cliches and sayings we are all familiar with. It is funny how we constantly say things we don’t live up to or even really understand the real depth of those quotes. “You never lose the ones you love.”, for example, “The ones we love are always with us”, “They live on in our hearts.”,  or “They are always in our thoughts.”. So as I was thinking of loves gone by and all those people I have lost through death and circumstance today, it occurred to me that they really are always with us. All we have to do is allow ourselves to believe it and look for them in our hearts and thoughts. It all started well a long time ago. One person in particular haunts me, not in some dark and sad way. He always seems to show up in those moments of confusion or despair that follow us all. He always brings love and a smile to me, but mostly he brings words, to calm the soul. hope for my future and things like that. I have allowed myself to being open to his help, and in the process have learned something else. He is not the only one who still loves me and thinks of me. Lately, and in particular another has been haunting me in my dreams, but again not to hurt me or confuse me. They all seem to be coming just to hold my hand and bring reassurance about our roles in each other lives. They also come to remind me that no matter how life has separated us, they are always with me and continue to love me. It is a very comforting thought. I am realizing that no matter how alone I may feel sometimes, they are always only a blink away. All I have to do is think of them and be willing to hear what they will bring, then the answers come.

It is strange how life can bring us full circle to things we understood as children, but have been twisted and taught out of us. Then as grown ups we find ourselves needing this love and help more than ever and have lost the keys to that help. Some may think it is futile and silly, or maybe even obsessive, but from where I see it, that is not the case. We were all meant to touch each others lives for a reason, and I am happy to continue to learn from what they bring to me. I do not love my life dwelling on the past, but I do find myself thinking about my life now. In those moments when I am searching for the next step in the journey, sometimes they come with words of advice and guidance. I am realizing how helpful and thankful I am for it. For those of you who understand this, you know what a blessing it is. For those of you who do not or have never tried, I suggest you give in to it. Not in a way to look back and dwell on what was, that will not help you go forward. Just remember a smile or a loving gesture and know that it is always there with you and that even though life may change things around you the love that was shared was real, for that moment and like a deck of cards, you can always use it to serve you at any given moment.

We have all been given the same tools to reach out and help each other, but more so, the tools to help ourselves. Never doubt your ability to bring all the good things in this world right to your doorstep. All you have to do is be brave enough to open the door and except what lies there waiting for you. We make things fearful by our own lack of understanding of something. Just look and see for yourself what wondrous things await inside yourself, great things and small things all lying there for you to pick up and bring love to yourself. Hoping you are having a wonderful day. Sending love to you all, as always, diana
