When You Say Nothing...at all....

My friend, Cathy, reminded me, today... The days are getting longer.... Oh...Yes...
I had a meeting with her, this evening....I gotta tell ya....it is soooo great... when people love what you do...I know, I don't work in oils...and, I have never sculptured, anything...{I have whittled a few things, for repairs, on old, primitives, over the years....oh dear...what a sight...my 'whittlin' knife, is a massive, butcher knife...when folks watch me...I scare them to death...they are sure I'm going to lose a finger...or limb...or something...they just, stand back...but...I guarantee, when I'm done... it looks exactly as it should...something about the 'soul' in a piece...it just speaks, to me...}
Anyway...Cathy was enamored with the Little Shop...{a Huge Compliment...} I get so.... well, sad... when I hit a spell...when no one comes, and visits.....sometimes...I think...I'm the only one, who loves this wonderful, old stuff... I start second guessing... start thinking about another job...or two...or three....
Well...for today... I won't think about that....
I walked through the shop, today..and snapped images of Spring...Flowers... Color...Life...


John had a Funeral, about 90 miles away, for his Uncle.... I had to be at the Nursing Home, with Mom...she's been having a few issues...and her Doctor was coming, today.... I will say...for almost 91...she's doing pretty good...I listened to her, rattle off her ailments...oh dear.... very few... {tho, she doesn't agree...I know lots of Folks, half her age, with many, many more!} I guess, none of us, really realize, how truly Blessed we are... There is always someone, who has it worse than most of us...we truly need to be more Thankful....
So...Thankful, I will be... Thanks to Sweet Cathy....for boosting my ego....and...loving what I do, almost, as much as I...
