.....what's your path? ....

things have been presentful lately ....
presents for my birthday ...
presents for mothers day ....
lovely and fun and happy gift GETTING experiences ...
but really?
i prefer giving gifts ....
don't get me wrong ... i love getting gifts ... especially from mr.e.beck.artist and the kids ... they go all out in the picking of the perfect thing .... but for the most part, i prefer the giving ... i like the deciding what to give, the (usually) making of what to give, the wrapping, the giving, the happy surprise ....

yesterday i had lunch with two girlfriends ... one i see a lot ... one, not so much lately .... all three of us brought the other two gifts ... isn't that kind of funny .... no one needed a gift ... or needed to give a gift .... but we all walked in and out with two ...
i like that .... nice to have friends who think like you, huh?
so one, her birthday is coming up ... so i called it a birthday gift ... the other, got a birthday gift just cause i wanted to draw a cupcake on the card too... her birthday is in the fall (um, i think) .....

when i thought of the words to put on this painting i gave yesterday, i was a little miffed that i had never thought of them before ....
that should be my motto .... how have i never thought it up before?

choose the happy path ...
