Surprise at every turn

New York Botanical Garden/Michele Bedigian

 

Yesterday was the first of the year and we wanted to do something special with the kids to honor the day. So we took them to see the Holiday Train Show at the NYBG. It was as beautiful as ever and the kids were amazed when they saw “Thomas” whizzing by on the railroad at arms length, (don’t think they didn’t try, lol). Above is a drawing I did during New Year’s there a few years back before the boys were born. As I look at them now my heart skips when I think of the wishes I had made that year and know now anything is possible if heard from above. – Michele

I received this wish from a really dear friend this morning and thought it too beautiful not to share…Happy New Year!

” May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself. “

– Neil Giaman
