Grateful for family

This was another prompt from the Grateful HeART Journal online class with Alisa Burke. I shared my initial pages inspired by this class HEREThe pages I am sharing in this post are in my Inner Work journal rather than my art journal. This is a place where I do a lot of personal written journaling, and these prompts are very personal rather than artistic. I am sharing these pages for inspiration. We are on a journey with my father as he deals with cancer and I decided to honour him in my first attempt at this prompt. This photo is from his birthday last January
It was really lovely to think of all the wonderful words I can use to describe my Dad ♥ 
I really enjoyed the effect of using white pen over black paint so did another page to celebrate my family of boys using a favourite photo taken last year at my 50th birthday.
I am so grateful for the relationships I have with my lovely family. Counting my blessings, it occurs to me I could probably do a whole journal like this including other members of my family circle and my supportive friends. My husband and I celebrate 26 years of marriage today. He is my partner and my best friend, and I don't know what I did to deserve him but I am so grateful he is beside me every step of the way. Think about who you are grateful for today and then go and tell them ♥

Lovely to read your counting of your blessings.

I am sorry to hear about your father and wish him well and that he and you all have all the love and support you want and or need.

Thanks Sue - we are well supported and he came home from hospital today so that is happy news.

A lovely tribute to your dad and your family! This is when art journalling comes to its own and becomes very personal.
