Hello lovelies.....

How are you? Happy Friday.

Here we are on the other side of Christmas. Can you believe it? It comes and goes.... so quickly.... I've never had a Christmas quite like this one that's for sure!!

In the end it all worked out. John was out of the hospital in time for Christmas. We just finished our big Christmas dinner a few hours ago... compliments of my Mama.... and Oh my gosh... I'm so full. My oh my... it was delicious..... so good!!

Thank you for all the notes and prayers for John. They worked!! He was released Christmas Eve..... I really thought he was going to be in there for Christmas.... So good to have him back with us.

How was your holiday? 

I'd love to hear.... please feel free to share below.....

My Friday finds....... 

I have so many holiday gifts to photograph.... but time has been short.....'sigh'.

Just one photo today..... a quick snap of Sweet Paul.... from my dear friend Cheryl. It's beautiful ..... packed FULL of photographic/graphic inspiration....Amazing.... Thank you lovely.......from the bottom of my heart... so much gratitude.

And.... the sweet packet of Tea... picture perfect... don't you think? .... part of sweet Laura's box full of Christmas blessings .... more on that soon....

Gosh, I'm just itching for time and light....for pretty picture taking.....

I must sign off for now. My parents are here for a few days.... We are up early tomorrow....and off to Cancer Care for a check up.... then maybe Mom and I will hit the mall...... 

Sending much love.... and light....

endless gratitude.....

I don't comment often, but wanted to share the snowflakes I found, and I was happy to hear the news that Paul made it home for Christmas. I hope 2014 is all you want it to be.

Kim - I am sooo happy John could come home (sort of - home) for Christmas. That's wonderful. Hopefully very soon you will get good news that he can come home to your real home. We are all praying for that day. It's been a long haul for both of you but I think you are coming to the end. Happy for you. I pray 2014 is a blessed year for all of us.

I'm so glad that you were able to spend Christmas with John and your family, what a wonderful present. Sending you wishes and prayers for a 2014 filled with all that you wish for.

Hi Kim, I don't often comment here, but just had to take a minute to let you know how much I admire you! Your talent and generosity have steadily inspired me for a couple years now as I've followed your blog and your many tutorials and classes. The sad news of cancer in you and John's life broke my heart. Every time you pop into my email I say a little prayer for you both and hope for good news! Your optimism and courage blow me away each and every post. Your strength is amazing and I think how John must be so proud of you and feel lucky to have you in his corner. Wishing you and your family many happy and healthy years to come! Thanks for all that you share on your blog, you are not only a gifted artist, but also a talented Angel!!
