Sometimes There Are No Words

My very first painting which I gave to my friend at the beginning of her journey (see below).  It was inspired by Kelly Rae Roberts.
Sometimes there are no words.  I'm losing my friend; watching her fade and it's hard.  I'm weary from lack of sleep and a torrent of emotions; I'm taking the day off.  But I'll leave you with some great posts I thought you'd like to see:

  • Check out this great interview about how one artist manages her day. (Helpful for writers, beaders, quilters, and all kinds of creatives)
  • Pound away frustrations with a hammer to make an easy yet beautiful Mother's Day card here.
  • A creative handmade gift for Mother!
    Hope your weekend is a good one.  Give your loved ones kisses and hugs. Especially your Mom!  And if you've lost your mother, here's a ((Hug)) from me.

    15. Watching a loved one fade to nothingness is terribly soul wrenching, exhausting and draining of one's self....totally understand....Will keep you and your friend in my prayers.
