I was going thru all the photos I have yet to put in albums (there are way too many) found several of my son Chas when he was just a baby. This was taken when I was only 21 yrs old...Yikes...could that really be me??? Can you believe he was that *healthy* from just breast milk??? Yep! Those were tough days however because of bad choices I married a man who was abusive both physically and mentally. It lasted only 5 yrs and I was blessed to get out with my life and my son...he went on to marry 6 more times never changing and passed away last year. So sad, but I thank God for being there with me thru it all.
I can remember so many times when I found myself in one bad situation after another, some because of bad choices, some from being in the wrong place at the wrong time!!! I won't go into all that because it's in the past, and I've realized that life is just too short to beat those old times over and over again...wouldn 't you agree?? I know sometimes we do have to go back and deal with things to be able to put them to rest...I believe I've done that with most things...I still have dreams that take me back to my childhood...don't know why, but I'm all for living in the now!!! Having found this wonderful place to finally share all what I do with likeminded people who have become so very dear to my heart makes everyday a treasure. Funny how many things just doing seem to matter anymore...I feel God's presence everytime I pick up a paintbrush. I really do believe HE gives us these talents to share with others don't you??? My heart is so full I of love for all those I've met here, (mostly for bringing my sister and I together in a very special way) ehhehe!! Here I am back to my sweet sister. What can I say, being here sharing everything I do with her means so much!!! Now, I am wishing each of you a wonderfully blessed day today...and a full week of wonderful discoveries to paint, think about and to share!!! (((hugs))) Bevie
