May 20 Why I haven't been posting

Hi Everyone
Just thought I would write a note to tell you why I have been absent from posting. 2 of my daughters had some serious stuff happen to them this last week. My 16 year old was in a car accident and totalled her car, thank God she walked away without a scratch. There must have been many angels watching out for her. My 19 year old had a tonsilectomy the 11th and ended up having an emergency surgery this weekend due to complications. She is doing fine now thank God again. I have been doing a lot of praying lately! So my post today is to hug your loved ones and tell them how much they mean to you!

Hopefully I will get back to posting paintings after the Memorial Day weekend.

Take care and be safe,

Hope your daughters recover in full and thankfully they are doing much better.
Best, Nina

I hope your family is well and happier soon! Bad things DO happen at once - now perhaps you'll have some peace.

Wow, Toni! I am so sorry for all the things that have been happening in your life! I am glad to hear that they are okay though. Take care of your girls!

Hi Nina, CJ and Denise
Thanks sooo much for the nice notes. Both girls are doing fine and we are getting past the "danger" time for the tonsilectomy. I have been laying low, I am still nervous when either of them drive away...Life with teenagers I guess! It has definitely been tougher compared to when they were little. They are such good girls but independent which I guess is what I want LOL! I finally painted a little today and will start posting again.

Thanks again!!
