“Do not take anything for granted — not one smile or one person or one rainbow or one breath, or one night in your cozy bed.” ~Terri Guillemets
I am happy to be here searching for the words to share my relief and gratitude. My biopsy results came back negative! Upon hearing the news, my husband let out a huge breath and with a very shaky voice told me how afraid he had been, but didn’t want me to know. What a blessing to be able to once again go about the business of living our lives though with a heightened sense of how precious it is once again.
So many of you wrote personal notes, comments and sent thoughts and prayers for me and my family as we waited for the news about how our lives would proceed. I cannot express how grateful I am for the caring hugs from so many people who only know me through my little blog. Thank you from the bottom of my tangled heart!
The piece I am sharing today is my Celebration piece. It is also in response to the Diva Challenge to use something for a stencil to form your string. I ended up using a huge eraser shield bisected with a French curve that I had forgotten about having. Since it was so large, this piece is done on 12” x 16” Canson Mi-Teintes Pastel paper. I added a little stain around the outside to mask my smudgies from left handedness. You will notice a great new tangle as yet unreleased to the public – contact your local CZT to get the drop on the general public. Other tangles are Dragonair and Mooka plus the ever-present Tipple I just love to use.
I am thinking this one will be framed and be given a place in our home as a reminder to never take anything for granted and that I am blessed to have so many wonderful, caring people in my world.
