Happy Mother's Day ~~~

I've been singing this chorus for weeks now....I bet you won't get it out of your head either.... (evil, aren't I???)

Our friend overseas is doing well. They've brought him out of his induced coma and can name people but hasn't worked out where he is. So far he's "been" in many cities and countries except the one he's actually in. He can't remember the last month of his life! There's no sign of damage to his spinal cord, but some vertebrae may need fusing, his ribs are healing but he's in a lot of pain. He's breathing on his own and the bleeding has stopped in his brain.

It was touch-and-go there for a while, but thankfully all our prayers have been answered. If he makes it through this, he'll have his wife to deal with!!! He may NOT survive that. He may not be home for another month.

Keep praying. It seems to be working....

I WON a prize...for the 123 Challenge for April!!! All this goodness is coming my way and I am supremely buoyant. I just love creating and being challenged by different criteria that it doesn't matter if I win a prize anymore. I'm enjoying the journey - and that's the main thing for me.

Don't get me wrong - I absolutely love the peer accolade and the fact that I can now go on a spending spree at KittiQ. These comps are always a win-win situation for me. I get to create something unique every month and the prize is an added bonus. I think Charmane and Karlene do a fabulous job on their site.

AND I made it to their "Who's in the Spotlight". The photo was taken on ANZAC DAY, before I had 10cm chopped off the length.

Another post tonight with visual delights!!

toooooo much to do
