A Journal Page - Things I Love


This is the last page I did in my art journal the night I fell and broke my hip. I have been working in this journal for some time and wanted to try and finish it up that week. I was looking forward to starting a new journal. Little did I know that the journal I would start would start in rehab; involve physical and occupational therapists. Life is full of funny twists and turns.

Hope your rehab is going well. My rehab last summer was self induced by requesting my bunion to be removed while I felt I was still young enough to deal with crutches and the like. It wasn't fun but in the long run I'm glad I did it. Also hope Earl wasn't bad for you. Up in Hampton Roads we only got rain and not enough of it.

Been thinking of you and trusting that all is going well. :) Your journal page is just lovely! And certainly a perfect reflection of all that matters in life.

What a beautiful journal page. The girl is so lovely. And I love your theme. We should all do something similar - to make us realize what we trying do have!
Hope you are healing well!

A lovely, colorful page reminding one of priorities. A great page to turn during life's challenges. Sorry about the break; hope the new journaling subject material helped with the rehabilitation and recovery.

I love all your journal pages and I find them really inspiring. This one has such vibrant colours.

I really wish you a speedy recovery.

I don't mean this to sound 'flip' but my nan used to say "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"

Best wishes

So now you need to add "good health" to that list! Very nice page and a good reminder of what is important.

Blue and yellow with a touch of all the other colors is my all-time favorite combo!
