Thanksgiving, A time to give thanks and

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. With this being a holiday to reflect the things we are thankful for, I thought would be a perfect time for this post. With all the struggles I have had in the past 6/8 months with the physical and emotional struggles. I have had to stop and evaluate my own life. Yes, It was a struggle everyday, yes I made it. Yes I have my share of bad days, just like everyone else in the world. One of my dear friends have had some serious things to deal with, her Mother became illl with Pancreatic cancer, and it took her 3 months later, she no more than finished funeral ceremonies and a day later her husband was taken to the emergency room and after tests he was diagnosed with stomach cancer at the age of 47. She has also had some major health issues. So what gives me the right to be anything but thankful, thankful I have recovered, thankful I am still here. Thankful for everything I have in my life good and bad. So it is time to let go of the self pity, and start appreciating the things I do have. And start giving a bit of myself to people like I use to do. No more hiding out, and feeling sorry, no matter how bad one has it, there always people who have it worse. Time to dust off life and live it!
For my friend, I made her a little something to display at the funeral. Her father loved it, and it made me feel good doing it, and how nice it was to craft again. Her's a peek, and Dee if your looking down, we will miss you dearly. Fly with the angels.

 An 11x14 Canvas altered for this remarkable woman. Whose life was cut way too short.
 Some hand rolled flowers, some prima, some recollections.

So my thanks today, first of all is to my wonderful family and friends. Today is a new day, live it to it's fullest, and always be thankful it it the little things in life that make life big. I am happy to be back.Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Aw this is very sad Ronnie but indeed it is times like this that make you appreciate what you have got.
What a beautiful canvas you made as a very fitting tribute to Dee.
Take care.
