Great News, and more Great News!!

Today is just so full of good news that I have to share it with my friends! The first thing that happened, was that I got the layout for my article in Cloth, Paper, Scissors! I actually cried, I’m such a baby, but this is such a dream come true for me. The article is titled ‘Art at the Speed of Life, how a busy mom finds time for art and still gets dinner on the table’. It will appear in the July/August issue and is 7 pages long. The editor had asked for three ‘sets’ of artwork (that will be explained in the article) so that they could have some to choose from. They ended up using all of it. I’m still just dazed. I love that publication and to think of being in it leaves me pinching myself.
Now for the OTHER exciting news, that had me bawling today! My PFC, son, Christopher sent me my first letter! I have been waiting to hear from him and I won’t lie, it’s agonizing. I didn’t even have a way to write to him until he sent the address. It was so good to hear that he is well, and ‘really liking the whole army thing’. I can’t send him any cookies though, because the Sargent will make him do a push up for each cookie and eat them while he’s doing the push ups🙂 Oh well, that will come later. I am just overwhelmed right now and no one is home to share any of it with. Thanks for all of the support, it is so encouraging to hear from you all. Hope your day is going great too!
