A current update

Hello to all my friends!
I am going to slowly ease my way back to my blog & art work.I will briefly explain my absence (with a great deal of difficulty) but I do want to explain a bit.
I lost my husband 2 weeks ago in a fall. We were married for 38 years & together for 42 years. Needless to say....I am devastated but I am getting by. I have a WONDERFUL family & amazing friends that are certainly helping me through. I will be extremely busy as my husband was a lover of life & many hobbies. I'll have many things to go through but my sister insists I take time out for some art & fun. I know my husband would want that too. I thank you all for your kind thoughts & I will try & post some art next week.

Diane, I'm so sorry. I know what it's like to lose a spouse from a long-term marriage. I'm amazed that you can talk about it publicly so soon. I think your friends and family will be a source of emotional support for you.
Hugs, hugs, hugs as Tweedles says.
