A little hello


I have been overwhelmed by the well wishes and touching comments that have been made regarding my previous post. Just thank you so much for taking the time to write a few words. I have read them all over and over again, and they have helped me, particular thanks to Shropshire Suz and Kari......touched me deep inside. We are on the mend, tiny steps though but life is returning to some kind of normal.

Things making me happy this week

1. Bowls of beautiful buttons sitting on the counter in the gallery (above)

2. A weekend spent with friends and lots of smiles and laughter

3. Chicken broth

4. Evenings spent on the sofa snuggling with hubby

5. Planning a trip to Paris next week (an early Christmas present)

6. Painting again!!!!!

Lots and lots of love to each and every person who reads this little old blog of mine. xxx

Happiness and sadness run parallel to each other. When one takes a rest, the other one tends to take up the slack. ~Hazelmarie Elliott

A little Hello to you, too. Praying for you and hubby both. May Paris be nothing but delight and inspiration for you two.

I checked back in on you today to see how you were doing, and oh! I am so glad to find that a little bit of joy is tiptoeing back into your life ~ and that you are painting again. That is very wonderful, and may the new year be wonderful, too. May it be a time of new beginnings. Bless you!! xo Kari

I emailed you about a year ago to say that I'd stumbled across your work at a gallery in Liverpool and had fallen in love with your paintings, and you sent me a lovely message back. I followed your blog until your break and kept checking back on and off but only finally caught up today... My thoughts are with you and I'm so glad to hear that you're taking those tiny steps. I look forward to coming to see you in Beaumaris and buying one of your beautiful prints one day. Tracy x
