Thank you for all your loving, supportive comments yesterday. I know that all of you have had your share of losses and understand how overwhelming grief can be. Writing about it was enormously healing for me. As I wrote, I cried. The sadness stayed with me throughout the day. But I feel better now. Today is a new day, the sun is shining and I have a lot of work to do!
On to happier things!
My friend Terri of Artful Affirmations took pity on my mail-less state and sent me two things this week. I can’t tell you how happy that made me. I received this postcard first. I love the quote and have it propped up on my desk.
Yesterday, I received a little package from Terri. Of course, I opened it at the theater so I have to tell you how it was wrapped – in lovely aqua tissue paper with string tied around the package. On the string was a tag. The tag said:
The beautiful components to make a flower like the one Terri made at the top of the photo! Isn’t that the best idea? It is the perfect thing for someone like me, away from home and my studio, without access to everything I have there. (I’m so happy I threw some glue in the boxes I sent here!)
Thank you, Terri. Terri is enormously talented, by the way. I continually gasp every time I see one of her creations. If you haven’t visited her wonderful blog, you must!
Have a happy Saturday.
