I could have not put up this artwork without sharing the backstory. This year has been a challenge... We learned my two year old had a brain tumor in the back of his head. They were able to remove it but at the cost of 5 surgeries in the span of 5 months. I was at his bedside almost 24/7. We had support from family and everyone gave us their thoughts and prayers and I'm blessed to have it. But I must confess, I was angry and drepressed. Not wanting to misplace those negative feelings I kept socializing to a minimum. Everything irritated me...even people with good intentions, because of the situation. Not wanting to misplace those negative feelings I kept socializing to a minimum. I hated small talk and was sick of everyone tiptoeing around me. Waiting in that hospital room every day, art became my best distraction. This drawing has been sitting on an unsaved illustrator window and I felt it should at least be finished. My son has returned home and is recovering but the experience had already changed me mentally. This a late confession. Because of who I am I'm not great at confiding to people the things truly eating at my heart. I'm not looking for anything out of this, I just want to place my feelings somewhere.

I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules,
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks . #hardtoexplain
Raised in Carolina
I'm not like that
Tryin' to remind her
When we go back
I missed the last bus
I'll take the next train
I try, but you see
It's hard to explain
I said the right things
But act the wrong way
I like it right here
But I cannot stay
I watched the TV
Forget what I'm told
Well I am too young
And they are too old
The joke is on you
This place is a zoo
You're right, it's true ... My favourite track from one of my favourite albums of all time. This is the copy I bought back in 2006 - it’s one of my most treasured things. ❤️🎶
First selfie in years. Dear lord Matt
I'm still learning to trust the process. Things that aren't meant for us, shouldn't be fought for. That's how you lose the good ones, But when you just let it flow, I feel like thats when you start becoming happy
Supper tonight sparked a conversation of where my hubby and I were 17 years ago.
Our daughter was asking lots of questions and was shocked when we explained to her what happen!
Thinking of those who lost their life on 9-11!
Don’t take one day for granted! Live, love, do what makes you happy and don’t be afraid to take the scary leap of Faith.
Good Morning!!!!🌞☀️😃 Happy Monday!! 😁😁 How good do you feel first thing in the morning?
Do you wake up with your body aching all over and have to give your body a few minutes before you can actually move?
Do you wake up completely tired because you tossed and turned all night?
Do you wake up running for that pot of coffee?
Do you wake up grouchy and just mad at the world?
Yeah that used to be me. I changed all of that for myself.
My aches and discomforts have calmed. I can move in the mornings and all day long for that matter.
I don't toss and turn all night long. I sleep like a baby all night every night.
I quit drinking coffee over 2 years ago. I don't need it anymore. I feel amazing without it (and I don't get the crash). I reach for my capsules not my coffee.
I wake up with a smile on my face every single morning. I never knew I could feel this good and you can too. Trust me all it takes is 3 simple steps taken correctly in the first 20-40 minutes of your day. #expierenceitforyourself#hardtoexplain#trustme#health#3simplesteps#changedmylife#nothingbutsmiles#morningornight
