Standing Strong

Origami Womens shoes

Thinking

Of all women

In the recent past times

Whose feet tread upon injustice

An stood

Some silent, but unwavering

Strong upon their beliefs

Of equal rights

For all

Life’s Ordinary Things

Blue Bird singing, Red Rose blooming, Watercolor by Leonas Designs

Bird song,

First rose in bloom.

Enjoying the simple things.

Feel of rain, and the warmth of sun

Blessings,

Priceless, often overlooked,

Treasures are free,

And in our lives

Abound.

Find beauty and joy in the ordinary things that life brings.

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” –Eleonora Duse

Lately I have been trying to learn how to draw. I have always wanted to but never really took the time to see if I could. So, last month I decided I would.

I bought a Sketch Book and some drawing pencils, found a daily drawing prompt site on Instagram and began my journey!

It has been a delightful, rewarding time each day. I am learning so much, finding hidden talent I didn’t know I had and meeting new friends.

I usually search for “How to Draw” sites or on You Tube that have drawing tutorials.

Today was especially exciting as the Prompt was to draw “Numbers”.

I decided to create something from the Numbers 25 as today is the 25th.

The drawing you see posted above is what resulted! It just amazed me to see where creativity led me today! From the numbers 25 to a Snoopy Top Dog drawing! 😊 I just had to share my excitement!
