Finally, I am feeling fabulous - though it may be relative to how I have felt the last three months, I love the fact that when someone asks me how I'm doing, how are you really feeling, I can honestly tell them that I feel fabulous!
Though I have to take things slow and I tire easily, I really feel good - good enough to do several things that I haven't had the energy to do since before Thanksgiving.
Like clean up the dump site I call my studio, cook some meals for my family, go to the movies, get back in church, and yesterday I took a soldering class - WOOHOO!!!
There's more but I've been too sick to remember everything. LOL
In getting my life back into some sort of order has allowed me to re-read the posts, the emails, the cards and letters that I have received from so many of you. I have also felt good enough to enjoy the lovely gifts that many of you have sent to let me know that you're thinking of me. And, oh my gosh, this was such a surprise, I had to drop out of a Paper Whimsy Banner Swap and my dear partner made my letter for me and sent me a completed banner.
The picture above is in reference to a post where I told you about the beautiful necklace that my precious friend, Keesha, made for me for Christmas - I told you then that I would show you a picture of it when I was feeling better.
That would be today!! Yippee!
Isn't it just the coolest? I simply adore it.
Everyone in the art community that I call a friend has been so thoughtful.
I even received a phone call from a blog friend that I've never even met before! How darling is that?? I try to explain to Frank the Tank what dear friends you all are to me, those of you that I know from the art community, women I've never met face to face, women that I've shared an art retreat with, women that I feel closer to than most of my face to face friends, and I don't think he gets it.
Oh, of course he doesn't get it - he's a man and he's not an artist!
I hope y'all get it - how much I cherish you - you know who I'm talking to.
God bless you,
