    Hello everyone-First I want to thank all of you for your kind words and praise, it is greatly appreciated.

    I don't know what I would do with out this board, I don't always post alot, it has been a busy six months with the surgery and the foudation stuff and now the art show.

    But I do look forward to coming here and reading how everyone else is dealing with their own lives, being there to support when someone is having a bad time, to rejoice and be happy for those wonderful times that do happen and just to know I am not alone.

    I admire all of you for your courage and strengh and how no matter how bad you feel, when someone feels worse you are there for them.

    Many times I want to reply to some but feel if I do for some and can't to all because of time, brain fog,ect that I am slighting someone.

    I love the sense of humor this board has, everyone needs a good laugh more than once a day and we do have that here, it may be fantasy places or having penngies running all over the place, but it is a great escape and I thank you for that.

    I just wanted you to know I am here, in the bushes sometimes, and do care how all of you feel and appreciate you for being here in my good times and bad.

    Now I may be gone for next 4 to 5 days, I have to work tomorrow, my art show is Sat, Sun i will be in bed all day :) Mon and Tues are Dr appts. Then I get 2 days before I go back to work next Fri.

    Wow that made me tired just thinking about that! I have to get up Sat at 7 AM, I am not a morning person. Anyway, look at my profile and you will see all 4 art peices I am entering. The watercolor on the bottom left was the first thing I had entered into a art show in 2003 and I won a 3rd place ribbon for it, I was so surprised and it encouraged me to do more.

    I encourage all of you to find what it is you are passionet about and pursue it, it could be scrap booking photos, knitting, sewing, basket weaving or just a coloring book, crayons and the kids. It is a great stress reliever and passes many hours and you just get lost.

    Thanks again for all you do for this board, each and everyone of you are special people and we stuggle and fight this fight together and hope one day we have our prayers answered-Carla

    Your pictures are super. I think you said something about framing in one post, but can't really remember. Do you do your own framing?

    Always good to hear from you, find out what the girls have been up to, etc.

    Hope you don't get too exhaustenized this weekend.

    Wishing you well on your art show. I still think my favorite is the swamp scene, but they are all great! Appreciate having you share part of your life with all of us.

    You are such an up-beat person, and keep so busy. I really do admire you. Anyway, take care and try to find some time in there somewhere for a little rest.

    Denamy- Are you showing at Greenbo ???? I don't know what part of the country you live in but that would be a hoot if we were at the same show. BTW-I love the pic in your profile, just magical-good luck with your show this weekend.

    That was a beautiful message you wrote. I find so much love and friendship on this board too. We all NEED eachother! I don't know what I would do without this board, truly.

    You are right - there is a lot of humor here - this is a place we can all escape from these dd's. So many here are so intelligent AND talented!!

    Good luck at your art show! From looking at your paintings, I know you will do GREAT!!
