It's been a long time....

Just so you know I really am still here, thought I would post a recent picture....can you see the extra wrinkles life has added since we last spoke???Here I am in Waco, at my daughters with my everfaithful sidekick Vegas, what could be better in life than a dog that loves you!!!

Wow! How fast can time fly???? It has been two months since I posted on this site...and man has my life changed since then!! I just posted an update on the http://www.warehouseartchix.com/ blog, so I will give a condensed version here. I have not created art for the last two months either...to say that I am having withdrawals would be a major understatement!!! Oh how I long to spend just one whole day in the studio to empty my mind...but , life has me by the coat tail and is pulling me along on this bumpy ride. I know well and good that life is not all smooth sailing..if it were, we would not need our awesome God...so as we travel through the seasons of life, he most definitely shows us how much we need him. I alone can create chaos and confusion, but if I give it to God, he will lead the way and deliver me out of all of that.

Sooooo as I face this day filled with the care of my mom, the selling of her home, the moving of it's contents into storage, the workload that is never ending, an ex husband that is filing bankruptcy ( meaning I need to go to the courthouse and find out why I am listed in his list of creditors along with my daughter...does it ever end??? The divorce is over, but the drama continues.) the process of getting my daughter into college for her junior year and all the time and expense that takes, remembering to pay my own bills....and so much more....my brain is on overload!!!!! Calgon...take me away (maybe not, the bathtub being cleaned is at the bottom of the list!) But, it is a new day and I am looking for the silver lining in it!!!

I wrote a HUGE comment to you and lost it now. Ugh. I'm so glad to see you post. You look great :) Puppy does too!
So sorry about the things you are going through right now. Sending you a hug. I love that you are looking above to Him for your help and strength.

I've got a Challenge going at Faith Folk, I really hope you comment. You have a lot to say that will help others.
Hugs and more hugs and blessings dear friend.

I've missed you, glad to see your post, sorry it is a sad one.

Hmm, I don't know if this will work for you, but it did for me. When my mom was ill, I kept a portable watercolor studio with me. As she slept, I did some quick paintings to relieve stress. I was near her if she needed me, and watercolor isn't messy and dries fast if I got intertupted.

Good luck!
