Find the Magic

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
Roald Dahl 

Good morning!
I am honored one again to be a Guest Designer for Sandra Caldwell aka Babycakesdnd, for this month of October. I just love her whimsical images and enjoy coloring them up.

For my card today, I am using this adorable image #2969, Snowball Kitten which is being released today in her store so make sure you go for a visit and check out all her creative and fun images!

I know that, given the image, the sentiment may seem to be a bit of an odd choice but for me it was perfect. I have to say that I find it so sad that it has taken a couple rough situations and 55plus years to figure out that life is too short to be unhappy. I’ve been blessed more than cursed and I realized one day that I wasn't truly appreciative of that which has been given to me. Being angry about a situation I cannot change harms only me. I’ve been working to find the magic in the everyday things of life because it really is there if we want to look. Even in a sweet, simple drawing of a kitty sitting in a snowball!

Here I have to smile because I can picture in my mind this little kitty trying to maybe dress up like a snowman to frighten his favorite doggo friend and sitting there patiently shivering for him to come around the corner! Who knows? LOL

So look for the magic in everyday … and be the happier person for it!
