Barbie for big girls.

Humbled and Grateful

I believe the title says it best for this one.  In my last post I explained that I needed to take a short break to deal with some “curve balls” life had thrown my way.  More like, wicked, MLB curve balls served right over the plate at about 90 mph.  I wrote that blog post mainly to hang up my “Gone Fishing” sign and let readers know I would be gone for a bit.  The comments, support, encouragement and honest human caring that came my way after that post has completely humbled me.  You are all amazing and you have my gratitude.  Your support has really helped me through these hard last couple of weeks.  You have been a rainbow in my cloud .Smile

    Hi. I’ve never visited here before, but just wanted to say how much I love the shelves furniture piece in your Repaint — Part II pictures. I have that same piece unpainted and was wondering how to paint it. You may have given me ideas.

    I’m glad you have been able to make it through these past few weeks. Sometimes life does indeed throw us curve balls.

    Rebecca, I understand horrible curve balls too. I’m so very sorry…and I do understand. I’ve taken at least a year or two away from some parts of life just to recupe myself. I do miss your beautiful posts, but know that time does ease some of the immediate pain associated with “curve balls”. Do take care.
