Days of healing and new opportunity.....

Thank you so much for all of your heartfelt prayers for my son! Yesterday we finally got the news we had been hoping for that the infection from his surgery has cleared. He is home now recovering and it seems we are out of the woods! We are now focusing on his weight loss and already making gains there as well! He is anxious to join his friends in summertime fun and finally celebrate his graduation!

These last weeks reminded me of a beautiful original canvas I purchased from artist Sharon Tomlinson. You can see more of her beautiful work at AllNorahsArt. I was drawn to this piece as it spoke to me about the common thread of struggle and pain we all share at one time or another and how we can support and encourage each other by offering to carry some of the heartache for a season....that a caring community is a catalyst for healing. I know we experienced that throughout this ordeal with our son and are so grateful for all the prayers, cards, meals, hospital visits, childcare and shoulders to lean on!

I also wanted to share some exciting news! I am honored to have been asked to become a part of the design team for Moss Hill Studios. Artist and friend JoAnna Pierotti has long been a creative inspiration and I absolutely adore her work. She has launched a new line of collage sheets that can be found on her website and in her Etsy store. I just I can't wait to see what creations will be inspired by her sweet designs! So stop by, meet the other design team members and take a peek at JoAnna's blog. I will be sharing more about this new journey as soon as my collage sheets arrive and I have a chance to see where the muse takes me! Hope you all have a safe and relaxing holiday weekend!

It's wonderful to hear that your son is getting better and that he's home. Children heal far quicker when their Mom's are right there KWIM!
I've left you a little something on my blog.
