Sometimes Life is Too Much.

Recently, there have been a lot of changes and life events for some of my dearest and closest friends. My dearest friend of 30 years has been diagnosed with liver cancer. I know we are all surrounding her with help and love but I feel so helpless for her and her family. We are all pitching in but it never seems like enough.

Another friend (can I say best? It feels like I'm leaving some one out by saying "best" but she really is a gem of a soul) has moved across the country. She will still be my friend and I know we will call often and I know she is doing what is best for herself and of course her family but I am still so sad about it. My selfish logic has hightailed it and is in total denial.

Even the good things feel like too much right now. My little studio is busting with work so I am keeping my hands and mind busy. Good things sometimes don't feel good when you are loaded down with worry...

More ((((hugs )))). Just wanted to let you know that you effect more lives then you may know. I have a chronic illness, it comes and goes, lately it has settled in for a long visit. So, I'm having fun with the wonderful beads you created for me. I cant ride my horse with my friends but I can make them wonderful custom jewelry!

I'm so sorry that you are having a tough time right now. Sometimes Life just hits where it hurts & breaks your heart. Sending good thoughts your way!

Awww hang in there. Tough times often have good things at the end of them. I have moved around a lot and I know what it's like to miss friend that live far away. Sending loving and inspiring thoughts you way as you create. I find comfort in my art when life is hard. I hope you find the same in yours. xo Genea

Thank you, Colleen, Kathleen, and Genea! I just got photos of beautiful fall foliage from my out of state friend and my other friend has started treatments!
