Boxing Day Official Holiday (big smile)!!
I had a wonderful but sad Christmas. Just before Christmas my Uncle passed; then I learned that my soul sister may have cancer and her hubby has cancer; lastly, my cousin's (second cousin) hubby has swine flu and is in an induced coma and critically ill...this is so sad to begin with but they just had a baby and were visiting his parents so they could enjoy the new baby.
My heart goes out to Faith and I pray her hubby will pull through...a little prayer please!!
So there are other things that are making me sad also but I'll get through them.
I couldn't settle myself to do my art before Christmas so I am going to make a concerted effort to start now and finish up the things left undone.
On the brighter side my darling husband redid two laptop computers for the grandkids and they were so happy...that made us excited for Christmas to arrive because they have wanted laptops for a couple years now and had just given up on getting one each....hahahaha..
I got the best buttertarts in the world from my grandaughter (10 years); Mom coached her along in baking them...oh thank you Nicky....hahaha now when you are being bratty instead of saying go to your room I will say go to the kitchen and make me buttertarts!!!!!
My grandson Jacob (13 years) did the most beautiful card that I am going to have to put up here I think for everyone to enjoy....he wrote a note about the things I did for him and of course both Grandpa and I cried. He did the most beautiful zentangles on the back of the card....I am so impressed with his art....
I must say both Jacob and Nicole are naturals for art...they come up with the most beautiful work. It makes me so proud!!!
Actually, we have no problems - we have opportunities for which we should give thanks... An error we refuse to correct has many lives. It takes courage to face one's own shortcomings, and wisdom to do something about them.
