When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another. -Helen Keller
I just finished a 12 week medical treatment for a condition I probably have had my whole life. The fatigue from the medicine was debilitating and had me bedridden most days. The thought of simple daily chores seemed so overwhelming. But...my treatment is over. Once again, I have been given a second chance at life. In a month or so, I should be fully healed and will be able to start working out again.
There are those though, that won't be able to fully heal. They face debilitating diseases or injuries that will not get better and they have to learn to live with their afflictions. I am amazed at their strength and that of the human spirit. How one can conquer the worst of circumstances and help others find the strength to carry on as well. I am humbled by my experience and will always respect those that face challenging health conditions.
I am grateful to be on the mend. My plan is to become as healthy as possible and maybe in the process I will influence others to do the same.

I submitted a few pieces to Belle Armoire Jewelry because MaryAnn Carroll of Love My Art Jewelry said they would love my work. I never in a million years thought they would accept me. In fact when the email came through and Cynthia wrote "Congrats! I was thinking congrats for what?!? Wow, I love Belle Armoire Jewelry and to see my work on the pages is quite surreal.
Then MaryAnn Carroll asked little ol' me to be a contributor for Love My Art Jewelry! WHAT!!! The blog has the most talented and sweet group of ladies and I look forward to sharing my creative journey with the readers. Holy moly, this year is turning out to be simply amazing.
Also, I have been preparing for the Barbera Festival coming up on June 14th. This is a fun event with music, an endless supply of wine and happy customers. What more could a girl ask for?
