Spring Angel


I painted and painted and painted. :) I'm not sure if she is finished. I think I'll probably do something more to the back of her which is pretty plain right now. It took me a while to decide if I liked her. I had to get my original vision out of my head so I could stop comparing her to that and see her for what she is.


This morning I looked at her in the bright snowy sunlight of the kitchen and saw her with fresh new eyes.

And fell in love.

Perhaps that is a lesson for other things in our lives.

She is bootiful! Thanks for the heads up on Jessie LaVon. I did send her something. It's humbling to think one has the most problems on earth, then you find someone else with worse. I grew up with the old adage "I cried because I had no shoes, then I saw a man with no feet". It's so very true. How 'bout all that snow you got? Eeeeek!!! xoxoxo

going back to hospital
3/03 Mama has taken her radiation and is having her antibiotics.We are hoping the surgery will be Friday to remove the kidney.
They will cut her from her back to the front then down to her groin,remove her bottom rib then the kidney.
The Doctor says she will be down for 6 weeks and will have to take 7-10 meds for a while.
When we left tonight she was on pain meds and said if they keep taking stuff out of her there wasn't going to be enough left when she does pass and asked the doctor to save her rib for her and trying to eat a Krispy cream doughnut and drink Mountain Dew. Her spirits are good and said to tell her darlings hello.Were taking her art and some items y'all had sent some while ago to decorate the room so she has her favorite items around her while recouping. we will keep you updated.Thanks for prayers and thoughts and the treasure and trinkets that have arrived,She is waiting till after the surgery to open goodies sent to give her spirits a lift.
Now I wonted to say a few words about Mama,she has been a great lady who always took in other children off the street to help them ,always sacrificed her life to put us through collage and always wore hand-me-downs so we had the best clothes.Worked had in the garden to can food for us and aways had a smile on her face no matter how bad things got.SHE GAVE UP AND NEVER DATED AFTER HER DIVORCE, WITH NO CHILD SUPPORT TO GIVE ALL HER TIME AND DEVOTED TO US CHILDREN AND ALWAYS GAVE UNCONDITIONED LOVE TO US.
I hope her friends here will keep her in their thoughts till she returns home.

This is Dusty,one of Mama's daughters.She has had a really bad night with the pain,If any of her friends here would like to see a donation in a small creation of art , cards or money it would be greatly appreciated. Her hospital bills and meds are running high.Thank you for any thoughts.
It can be sent to
