Out of Hiding.....


"You invite my fearful heart out of hiding.....to reclaim my dormant wings and risk the soaring heights of healing"

I wanted to share a new card found here on ebay. I haven't had much time for creating art as our life took an unexpected turn a week ago. I have been staying up at the hospital with my oldest son who had emergency surgery. His spirits are slowly rising and his body recovering. Its amazing how quickly life refocuses and what reallly matters becomes crystal clear. The to-do lists go out the window, little things don't matter and all that does matter is being there for your family! Its been a blessing to have this time with him to just sit and quietly be together as he continues to heal. Hopefully we will be back home by the weekend where his recovery can be bathed in the comforts of home!

Oh! I am sooo sorry to hear that he had to go through this...but so glad to hear that he will recover. Oh...it is sooo true that sometimes these things make us stop and appreciate a bit more all that we are given...and refocus. Wonderful that you saw to enjoy the time with him this week....just being together.
