Second Pet Portrait Finished

I finished another pet portrait for the WC trade. I can't post that one either as the person it is for visits my blog. We haven't received our address list yet but I have done trades with a few of the participants so have a few addresses to get a head start on my mailing.

At church today I got another shock. One that felt like a punch in the stomach. A friend passed away.

I met her and her husband when I first started attending my church. In fact he was one of the speakers at my husband's funeral. Very good friends and very nice, spiritual people. I will miss her so much.

I'm ready for this year to get a little better. It seems to be a really bad year for me. So many losses. So much change. And change is not that good especially at my age. The older you get, the more you get attached to the way things are.

Awwww, Jeanne. I am so sorry for you. I am hoping for a good rest of the year for you. ((((Hugs!))))

Sorry about another loss for you. Your year definitely needs to start improving!!! I scrolled down to see what I have missed. Great pet portrait and I love the VPO piece. Funny, but it could be Venice with those colors. Just shows how alike things are in other places. Could not upload today since someone else is on the computer with the USB port. Travel has its challenges. Ciao!

I'm afraid we're at that age where we are beginning to lose people we care about on a half way regular basis. We've lost several friends of our acquaintance. It seems to leave a hole in your heart where that particular person lived.

Glad you've got your parents, Stephen and his lovely family, and your four legged babies.

(( hug for you ))
