One day my six-year old grand daughter Shaela and I were walking down to the park where there is a children’s play area with swings, slides etc. She picked up three flowers with stems hardly long enough to hold them and gave them to me. Then she proceeded to tell me that she felt really lucky to have a grand mother who would do so many things with her, such as, draw, paint, do ceramics, bake, make her favorite foods, go to the park, read stories etc. I was taken back. It made me realize that as adults we simply take things for granted and don’t stop to express gratitude. If only we could live with an attitude of gratitude, we would look at the positive things in our life and feel blessed. I am reminded of Helen Keller’s words, “Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It’s what the sunflowers do.”

Based on a true story. It is a part of the series, “Lessons Learned from Six-year Olds”. Each piece is hand-printed by the artist. A portion of the money from the sale of this print is donated to mental health.



Black and white print – a part of the series, “Lessons Learned from Six-year Olds”

We must live with an attitude of gratitude. If one stops to count one’s blessings, there are, indeed, numerous. To begin with, as my father-in-law would say, ask a blind person how much he would give to have sight? Ask a lame person how much he would give to have legs? Ask a mute person how much he would give to be able to speak and express herself. And the list goes on. So let’s be thankful for all the blessings we have and particularly for those things that we take for granted.
