Appreciation for kindness received #14

Sat Dec 28, 2013, 12:50 PM

 "Life is a learning experience". In our lives we have good days and we have bad days. There will always be someone better off and someone worse off than we are. For me, I have come to realize that life is more about appreciation and compassion for others than the material things it can bring. The love and well-being of family and friends is what matters to me. 

Life here on DA thought me that it is not only about art, it is about friendships and encouraging and caring for each other. DA is about :community: whether it is saying thank you for kindness received, giving a Llama to welcome a new member, leaving a positive comment especially on the art of a beginner or sending a get well note or a note of support during difficult times; it is all about giving and receiving the feeling of having a second family of dear friends to truly appreciate and care about here on DA. 

Please allow me to sincerely thank the following groups and artists for featuring my work in their group or personal journals. If I missed yours, please note me with the link so that I can thank you here in my appreciation journal. Your friendship, help, features, faves, critiques, comments, watches, notes and Llamas are most appreciated. You are all awesome in your own way. Hug

Please visit the groups or individual artists who have been so kind to me by featuring my work. Joining their groups, views, faves, comments, donations, etc...will be greatly appreciated. There are countless other artists featured in the journals and groups. I encourage all of you to go explore and get inspired and make new wonderful friends here on DA.Community; what deviantART is all about!

 I want to wish everyone Happy New Year 2011 May the new year be filled with Good health, love and happiness. 

I am very proud to introduce my DA family to those of you who have not met them yet.
 I also want to feature some of their incredible artworks.

  November's TOP Subs of Unframed-Nature and NEWS    
:note: As I no longer send out notifications for these particular articles, I regret that many people likely do not realize that they've been featured in our monthly events. I really am sorry for that.  I don't do the monthly notifications anymore, due to severe lack of time. The best I can do, is simply link the previous TOP SUBS News Article, with the current one, so here was October's TOP Subs:

Now on to NOVEMBER'S....

Well, for some unknown reason I cannot add any more artwork to this journal. There appears to be no room left when I try to add more nothing will paste. So sorry to those left out, you are not forgotten. I really do appreciate your kindness. I will save the rest for appreciation journal #15 starting with the oldest date. :hug: :heart:

Oh my goodness... I really am teary-eyed.

This was such a beautiful journal dA Mom! ... :happycry:
I love what you wrote, and I couldn't agree more, as I feel the same way about this place.
It is very special in that way, yes indeed, and you expressed it so perfectly.

I'm nearing the end of catching up with my main group of Unframed-Nature;
at least I have finally just re-opened! :faint:

BUT, I'm late to get out "The Top Submissions of December" so as I was working on that, something led me to something that led me to here!

Well said Denyse.  It is truly a pleasure to share and see the artwork and writings of others.  They are sharing a piece of themselves and it is always special and unique to them.  I also enjoy reading the comments not only left for myself but others.  Beautiful journal my friend.
