A tribute to my love

balanceAs I sketched in my pastel journal this evening, thoughts of balance came to mind and I recalled a post I once wrote in response to one of my readers. He asked advice on how to find time for art when you’ve got a full time career that exists completely outside of the art world. Some days it is definitely not easy and I find myself stretched thin to make time for everything I have on my to-do list for the day. Especially the last few weeks.

We had a bit a of a scare when Brian ended up going to the emergency room at the hospital after an accident at work. While I won’t go into the gory details, the doctors warned they might have to amputate his finger before they operated. So I guess in a way, this piece is also a tribute to him and the love we’ve shared these past seven years. I cannot imagine my life without him and I am so thankful that everything turned out okay. He still has a long way to go before he can regain use of his left hand due to the severity of the accident, but the important part is that everything turned out okay and he’s healing up better than expected.

My gratitude also goes out to everyone that night that played a role in getting him the medical care he needed. And yes, they were able to thankfully stitch his finger back to normal so he will most likely recover completely without any major complications. The bones will heal over time and although we won’t know the end result for a few months, we have plenty of reasons to be optimistic. He is left handed, so it is more frustrating than anything else.  His biggest problem right now is boredom. Despite it all, his spirits are high and he is keeping a very positive attitude.

So this is for you, my love. I feel so blessed to have you by my side in life. Every day I discover more reasons to love you…
