...my heart has a great big hole in it. I lost my little Reeda, my sweet baby girl on Saturday. I was so lucky to have had her for almost 8 years. She loved me & rarely left my side. I loved her. She was a handful at first because she was abused before coming to our home, had to fight for her food, and was just used to make puppies. It's so quiet in the house without her because she demanded your attention. My little angel dog Roadie is missing her. He knows what's going on. He has been savoring his treats because he no longer has to gobble them down so she won't take them.

I painted today. My Mom encouraged me to paint. When she asked why I am letting the enemy stop me from painting, I understood what was happening. Although it was she who bought me unspun wool and got me sidetracked teaching myself to spin yarn (another post), paint is what I did today! I must admit it felt good. I have lots of paintings in my head, however, these are random, nothing drawn out first. My Mom and I talk nearly everyday. I know God loves me because he gave me her as a mother. She is really my best friend and she is kooky. She is my root and she keeps me grounded. Thinking about that I decided to paint on wood today. It's been a few years. I went back to my roots. Old wood is still my favorite & most humble canvas. I need more wood!

...I finally picked up a brush. I attempted to finish a what I thought would be a beautiful portrait of a woman today. Hubby and I had a good laugh as I kept ruining her and ruining her.
