hEaLiNg ThRoUgH aRt
Today marks 8 months since my dear husband got his wings and flew up to heaven. He went peacefully from our arms to heavens door. I know he watches over me and is my guardian Angel. I miss him so much,but I know I would not want him back having to suffer the way he did the last year of his life. With everything going on here on earth lately... he is in a far better place. Will I go on? Yes. Do I like how life has changed? NO and yes! NO,because I would have much rather lived the rest of my life with him by my side.
YES...because I am following a life long dream. I am persuing my art studies. I know without a doubt that if Marvin was here he would totally agree. He always loved when I was creating. He was my biggest cheerleader. I can still hear him saying " Oh honey, I love it. I don't know how you do it !! I'm so proud of you !!" I know he is watching over me and saying the same thing. Ok... tears again !!
Collected and ready to share a bit of my journey with art . I so love the She Art Workshop with Christy Tomlinson. This is the last week and it is sad in many ways. I so love Christy's way of teaching. Her excitement is contagous.She has given me so many tools for my creative tool box. I can not express my gratitude to her enough. Her class was my very first online workshop. I am so blessed to have been led to her and her amazing workshop. Speaking of... she is having a giveaway for her She Art Workshop that will begin in April. Please click the Scarlett Lime button on the right hand side of my blog if you are interested. I know you will not regret it !!! I have posted several of my She Art Girls.. Scroll down !! LOL !!!
I have discovered a whole new world. I was again led to an amazing young woman ,Tam, at www.willowing.org. She has an amazing number of workshops that I so love. This is where I am learning to do faces,watercolour and mixed media faces / characters. I joined her group Willowing and friends and I love it there !! I have posted a few of my pieces here on the blog. I finished another yesterday. Here she is....
I want to leave you with a piece of a song that Marvin and I lived by the last year of his life... it is from Tim Magraws song.. "Live like you were dyin' !" I know what it means through the eyes and voice of my husband. He loved, laughed and cried. We grew closer than I could ever explain. His smile came easily, even when he was so ill. So dear friends.... live like you were dyin' . Don't put off telling someone you love that you love them. Do it now.. walk away from the computer , or send an email,text,write a note. Just do it !!! You never know dear one.. when someone you love will not be here on earth in the next moment !!!
Hugs and blessings...
