January Girl

January Girl has learned so much. Some simple little truths have finally dawned on her. Little words that she knew to be true never made so much sense until now. Stop worrying about the small stuff is one that is so simple but so hard to do.  Learning to enjoy the moment instead of looking to the future and crying about the past is another. She has learned to just let it go. Most of all she has realized how controlling she has been. It feels so good to let someone else decide. She has realized she can not have faith and still be fearful.  She now understands she can not be supportive if she is always criticizing.
Night and day, light and dark can not occupy the same space at the same time. 

Simple little truths that mean so much are sometime very hard to grasp. Yea for January Girl! These things have finally dawned on her.



  1. January Girl deserves a very warm, very long hug...you can see by her eyes that the world has opened in a way she never dreamed possible. Yea for January Girl!

  2. January Girl is very wise. And cute to boot!

    Happy 2012! It sounds like you are making the most of the new year!

  3. I love her Charlie! Your artwork always makes me smile!
