One step forward....

Hi friends....
I've been gone for a bit...not gone physically, but gone emotionally.  I'm still a little "gone" right now, but I'm taking a step forward.  I havent really painted in over a month.  That can't be good.  Creating is therapy for me...it always has been and I know it will be this time too.  Last night I decided to turn my dining room into my art studio.  I thought that for me, right now, it would be best to put what is most healthy for me, right in front of me...does that make sense????   I need my painting to be a part of my everyday life again...I've missed it so much, in so many ways.
Here is my little sanctuary...here is where I plan to do much of my healing...here is where I plan to feel peace :)

When I started my blog...it was to be my diary of my art and my life.  I am an open person, and to me it felt good to share my story-the good and the bad...but recently I have stopped sharing.  I have been struggling inside.  I have been worrying more about others interpreting my words...but you know what?  My blog is mine and my words and feelings are mine.  I believe in sharing our stories with each other.  I believe that only good can come from sharing the truth.  My hope in sharing my story is that it may help one person get through something that they may be going through, by not feeling so alone in this world.  So today I am promising myself that I will begin again.  I will let my feelings flow out of me and into my blog.  I will live my truth, and let my heart feel free again.    Today I am making one big step forward, and tomorrow I will make another.  This I promise myself.

My baby girl....

Nineteen years ago today, at 1:45 am, my beautiful baby girl was born.  She was a tiny little thing at 5 lbs, 1 oz.  She was determined to come into this world early-exactly 1 month early!   She was a force, the second she entered this world, with strong, tiny little lungs that filled the hospital with her bold cries.  She was beautiful on arrival and has only continued to grow more beautiful every single day.  She is my pride and joy, my daughter and friend.  I am so very blessed to be her Mama.
She will always be my little princess <3
I love her adventurous spirit!
And underneath all that indepence, lies a loving, compassionate heart.   Yes...I am blessed.
