I received a package in the mail today from my friend, Keesha.
She has been asking me for several days now if I had received anything in the mail from her and every day I would tell her that no, I hadn't gotten anything....did you send me a present???? You know that I love presents, Keesha....
This went on for several days and then today I walk into the studio and on my work table Frank the Tank had left my mail.
And guess what came in the mail today......

My precious friend, Keesha, had included me in y'all's awesome Valentine Charm Swap. Oh, my gosh.

I was originally a part of the swap but had to bow out when I realized that because of my "adventures in health", I wouldn't be able to participate.
Everyone of you involved in this swap that included me by making yet one more charm - bless you.

I acknowledge that I have gone through a lot since Thanksgiving.
Yes, it was bad.
It was hard.
It was absolutely horrific.
But it's been through prayers, love, thoughts, and acts of kindness that have helped me remember every day that I am totally blessed and have nothing to complain about.
Frank the Tank has finally come to the realization that my best friends are my art friends. All of y'all are so special to me and I am so blown away by your you get that?

Do you know how blessed I am to be associated with such precious ladies?
And Keesha - my dear, dear friend. I so love you!

Thank you, all off you, for my charms!
And for your friendship.
