Today is the last full day of the visit with my mother. My mind is full. I miss home my husband, and doggies. And yet I worry about my mother-I think she is doing well enough to be left alone, I worry about her doing too much. Also it has been nice being near my sister and for those who read both of our blogs you know she is going through a difficult time right now. It has been nice to be able to support her during this long, lonely and trying first week. Thank goodness for art-it does "save lives". Yesterday I discovered several packets of Twinkling H2os in my mothers stash of supplies, what fun they are to play with. I love how they sparkle on the page once they dry. I spent a good part of yesterday afternoon playing with them. I just want to thank everyone for the words of encouragement this past week. I've used my blog as a space to vent and it has been good to be supported.
