The Painting: This beauty returned from Patina at Marble Falls.  That was the gallery that had to close it doors and many of us are sad as it was one of the best of all of the galleries.  It is HUGE.  Standing four feet tall and three feet wide, is filled with the colors of rain as horses gallop toward you splashing.  ENERGY abounds from this painting. I just delivered it up to The Dutch Art Gallery for the show opening there next week, but it is for sale.  So contact me if you are interested.


The Thought I have to stop and take a breath and remember.  I remember with warmth and a wide smile my grandson Grant.  Grant died from complications from the flu in February of 2007. He was only 11. With the Swine Flu wiping through our population and so many deaths on the flu with children and adults... in our family we take it seriously.  My daughter and son-in-law chose not to go public with Grant's death almost three years ago, but they stay in touch with any one they can minister to going through this today.  A loss of child is so abrupt and to us so unnecessary.  Trying to stay focused that there is a greater plan, is totally impossible when you are in such new grief.

Be careful right now. Remember to wash your hands often.  Try and NOT GO OUT and expose others if you are sick.  I know with this flu, you are contagious two days before you show symptoms...so still be alert to always cover your mouth for coughing and sneezing. Always wash your hands and do not share drinks and food. 

Our family is eating out less.  We usually do in the winter anyway. We shop less in general and really stay on top of hand cleaning and avoiding places with large crowds.  I have watched this spread through our local schools and the families affected that have sick children.  It seems to linger almost three weeks before it finally clears a child's body entirely.  If you have three kids at home...it is going to take awhile to work it's way through your family...so try and stay well.

 Someone told us once to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star while you wash your hands.  It takes longer than you think!  Sing away today...it works with Jesus Loves Me too!
