Emergencies, Challenges and Gratitude

Regular blog readers have read (perhaps too much, lol) about my husband's health issues, and have been incredibly kind and supportive. And this week was no exception as it found us in the emergency room in the wee hours Monday morning, followed by yet another hospital admission. No matter how many of these episodes we have (and with two heart surgeries, COPD and cancer, there have been many) they just never get any easier.

He's a good guy, who's worked incredibly hard all his life, and it's difficult to see him fighting battles on so many fronts...but fight he does, and life goes on...

He's home now, breathing much easier, and I'm back to painting, playing catch-up from the two days "off", and thinking how fragile life is, and how blessed we are despite the challenges.

Just wanted to share an update, and thank everyone who's sent prayers, positive thoughts, and more...We both appreciate it more than we can say.

New work is coming soon - a wonderful, oval, spring piece, and who knows after that - perhaps a jewelry or memory box? Stay tuned. ;)

And in the meantime, if you have someone special in your life, give them a hug and hold them close...
