Rough Week....


So it has been a bit of a rough week..well month really. Finances have been wicked tight and I have been beyond stressed trying to figure out how to pay all the bills. My pride..such a silly thing..kept me from getting help..until Monday. I asked for some state aid and got it. My artwork has suffered as I was too stressed to create much. Silly looking back. Migraines, nightmares, 2am musings...yeah..silly. It gave me sad and grumpy and scattered. So we got some help..I felt a little better!

Then I got this sweet triple treat award from Sherry & Cat ...thank you so much!!I felt even better!

Pam gave me this fun one too..thank you hon..I love these....I felt even better...I will give you seven this week..
I discovered a couple of people I am very fond of suprised me with mentions on thier blogs!! Wow how wonderful is that. Then a very dear friend gave me some very loving and kind advice offered with honey...thank you hon! I was feeling less sad and scattered and cranky!!!


My pic of Daisy arrived at it's new home and they liked her!! I felt some serious happy...a little whoo hoo...my feet began to feel like maybe a happy dance....

Then, this shot appeared to me..I took it on a very foggy morning. (click on it to make it bigger)I was so pleased with the way it turned out. Ok so..after all of this joy, being loved on and taken care of by all of you...this shot just was the icing on my happy dance.


So I am a happy cat and over my sad. Thank you all for all the love and caring..can ya see me happy dancin'? Hugs, Sarah

Holy cow that shot is amazing!! When I first saw it I thought it was something you got out of a magazine or even a Thomas Kinkade (sp?) puzzle of something.

LOVE it!

Hope your week keeps getting better.

Sarah: I'm sorry to hear you were so burdened and glad to hear you found a way to ease the tight situation.

If only all the love and admiration you generate here in the blogosphere was money - you would never have financial problems again.

As you describe - you are a very wealthy woman - with a wealth of talent - a wealth of friends - and even a wealth of concrete evidence of how much you affect and mean to people.

Your photo is beyond incredible!!!
Will you put prints of it up for sale?

You are so authentic and honest you warm my heart. Hope things keep looking up for you.

I know how that feels but when I was there, the state couldn't help. But I made it through anyway.
