Alsea Falls

Gratitude, thankfulness, appreciation, indebtedness, recognition, acknowledgment, and humility for all the universe has given me. All I can say is that I am overcome with gratitude. The universe has been kind to me.

I can paint. I can love on children. I have food to eat, a nice roof, and a rug to sleep on. I have the love of friends, family, and my “Besties” to keep me warm.

If you ever question whether a life of service and loving others as best you can is worth it, I am here to tell you it will be the best choice you have ever made. As my grandfather has told me many times, “The Sun shines, Rain falls, and Wind blows so that I may eat…be grateful and don’t get cocky!”
