The Space Between



Yesterday was treatment number 2. I didn't feel nervous ahead of time this time. I enjoyed all of the days between last week and this one, so I was happy that I didn't ruin the week with anticipatory fears. That's a milestone!
It went okay, but I think each time it will hurt just a little more afterwards. I breathe, stay relaxed, pray for a hurting friend, and thank God that it is not worse. I am sore, but bearable. And I always thank YOU, my family and friends for your understanding and support. I am so very blessed...and I know it.
It is so oppressively HOT here that my handmade soaps are melting. How are you doing?! Enjoy this day...tomorrow will be cooler.
I ordered some new art materials and some new art books, so very soon I will share them with you!

I'm so sorry you are going through this difficult time.
Your journal only reflects beauty & serenity, which I believe will go a long way in helping you deal with all this.
Remember all of us who are thinking of you.

Hi, I just came from Juliettes blog and noticed on your comment that you had joined Curves. Hey, have fun and enjoy. If anything it will keep you healthy. I'm a member of Curves as well. It will be 4 years this October and when I don't go I truly feel guilty. Give it a chance, you'll like it. Take care, nice blog.

Kathy, I haven't been a very good blog friend lately, but you are always in my thoughts. I am so happy to hear that your troubles are not cancer related, and that you are seeking treatments... I hope you are feeling better soon love! and put those little soaps some place dark and cool, even in the fridge for a bit if you need to. that's the one bummer about summer, shipping soaps! ;)

so glad your treatment went well and you're feeling pretty good. i just love seeing your art. it is so wonderful. i just posted a dragonfly stencil that you can download on my blog. i also have a little detail on how i create my stencils. you had asked before where i get them, and i actually create all of my own, which is not too hard and so nice to have unique pieces to use :)

i hope you have a lovely weekend!
xo, juliette
