It started with SNOW that beautiful kind of snow! I could tell by the shapes of the branches before I was even out of bed and in the dark! Then a visit with a good friend that left me feeling happier and empowered... good company and conversation can do that. Our visits are always too short - will work on that for a goal.
We ran a few errands, had a good conversation and where home early enough to get some drawing done. My twitch was so good I commented a few times! I can't help it - I can hardly contain my pleasure on good days! LOL I must seem like a nut! I had an uncontrollable fit of laughter - I could not talk.. Storm just laughs along.. by the time I stopped laughing I forgot what I was laughing at. I LOVE it when that happens ;-)
Then I checked the mail.
In it is the latest issue of Treating Yourself magazine (photo above), in it is an article that someone wrote about me. I had no idea until I was asked for a photo from the magazine that this had been done. You know, there are days when one (ME!) feels overwhelmed, it is very hard for me as I cannot step away. I am not just a Cannabis cartoonist, my son has been legal to use Cannabis since 15 for his chronic pain and I am now also medicating with Cannabis. Which means we are also living with the bullshit that Canadians are having to deal with - Changes that are a crime against people in general. Human rights are being wronged.
I for one am seriously stressed about my sons future regarding his medication. At a time when I should have been healing from major surgery - I have been worried to the point tears and I believe only prolonging my healing. As you might be aware I have not healed... I feel so exhausted at times I wonder how I am expected to heal... same pile different day.
Then I read the article.
I started to cry. To have someone write that - I kept thinking he read my blog! Someone actually reads my blog! I was speechless. My husband and son read it and both felt as I do -
wow- I was blown away and don't know what to say other than -thank you.
I feel so blessed to be doing what I am - It is almost ironic that the main things I can do are draw and paint. God is making it very clear to me what I am to be doing ! LOL
John and I have become friends over time in e mail, his enthusiasm is contagious and I am happy to call him friend. Countless times when reading an email it will catch me off guard and I will burst out laughing - usually in coffee all over my key board.
I look forward to meeting him and Pam at this years EXPO- but his article really touched my heart.
The story was wrote by a friend - a friend I was not even aware I had made.
That is how I'm going to end this perfect day;-).
