Thankful Thursday: Picking up the pieces

I have received so many loving gifts in the past few weeks. They've come in the form of atc's, cards, letters, art supplies and phone calls all from my wonderful blogging friends who know I've been down and who have all tried to buoy me up.

I don't have time to scan all of these wonderful things and post them individually because I'm still in the middle of the latest giant mess. (Cleaning up raw sewage in my kitchen and bathroom from a freak plumbing incident while we were sleeping!)

What I will do is this. I will refuse to keep my tail between my legs and whimper any longer. I'll dig deep into my reserves and find my sense of humor and the lesson in all this madness. I will not let the actions of one psychotic landlady to break my spirit. I will remember that by nature I'm a kind and loving person but shit happens to good people too.

Today I'm saying enough is enough. I'm digging through my boxes and taking out my art supplies and dammit I'm going to make some art!

So please forgive my lack of posts and comments on your blogs. Know that I treasure every good thought and gift you've sent my way. Little by little I'll get on track and show up like I used to. Hang in there with me.

When I count my blessings, (and there are many) my faithful blog friends are among them. You know who you are ;)

Okay then. Back to life as I knew it!



  1. Sorry you have been having so many problems but when life gives you lemons get into that Art Studio and Create!! :)) Just think of today as being the first day of the rest of your life. Yesterdays gone.

  2. That black cloud that follows you around is working overtime!! But you CAN overcome it! YOU GO GIRL!!

  3. The psycho landlady was just a totally bad speedbump. I know you and you can eat her up and spit her out in one bite.


  4. Mind you on the sewage, I would be like 'fuck'.


  5. OMG it is certainly raining in your life lo my lovely. but i like your spirit, and your decision to get up and fight back! got caroline's book a few days ago, love your page, will have to do it this weekend.

  6. Art will always rescue a bad mood. Get busy girl. You can do it.

  7. smiles, hugs and a big wet kiss.

  8. So sorry to hear about your problems. I hope things are evening out for you now. Lots of art is good therapy for the blues. (Mind you, I am not sure I would be that positive with raw sewage either.)

  9. Now that's the spirit Lolo!
    You have to turn this around by starting somewhere.
