A Defining Moment

My life took a detour this year. Health issues stopped me in my tracks. For those who have so faithfully prayed and sent encouraging emails, I thank you.

I still have no answers and the health issues persist. This really hit me hard...emotionally as well as physically. In fact I think the emotional part has proven to be the most difficult to overcome.

I've felt better physically for sometime...but have found it difficult to get back in the swing of things. I haven't blogged or sent a newsletter because I really didn't have anything to talk about except my illness, and it had been magnified enough.

I believe that what we see, hear, and speak effects who we are. If you say a word often enough it becomes you. I had allowed this to happen...I had become my disease. Not to say that what is going on is not serious...I just don't want it to dominate my life any more. I don't want it to be who I am.

When I do have real news or this health issue is resolved...I will let you know. In the mean time, I need to get on with more positive, enriching thoughts and projects.

I have several layouts done for both drawings and paintings and of course lots of ideas in my head. There also are at least two firm commissions waiting for my attention.

I am back...perhaps not as regular as before, but I AM HERE and thankful to be able to say it.

Proverbs 15:30
A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.
Proverbs 15:29-31 (in Context)

Sorry to hear that you have been ill, but glad you are ready to move on, whether that is 'from' it or 'with' it. Totally agree that what we focus on most is who we become.
That being said, its true for me and others that it can take some effort to get back into artistic work. I hope the Muse is with you, and look forward to seeing more of your fabulous drawings -

So good to hear from you again.

I'm sorry you've been so sick.
I know how disabling our emotions can be... but you're going to keep fighting it... You'll overcome this, Marsha, I know you will!

I noticed that you were not blogging but didn't know why. Glad to hear you are getting back into your art and will be blogging more. You were missed. I also was sick with no diagnosis forthcoming from my doctor. I self diagnosed Celiacs disease and went gluten free. I understand; just walking hurt. The new diet has changed my life and I hope that you too will find relief.

Yes, this has been a long haul...not knowing is most difficult. I've felt everyone's prayers and am moving forward.

Thanks so much for your visit to my blog and all the well wishes. I hope to be posting more regularly and posting about more interesting and uplifting subjects.

Marsha, I am so glad that you are fighting to get back to work. My hope for you is that by getting back to work, no matter on what level, helps you through. Your fans are rooting you on!

All of us at Barn have been wondering about you and most certainly wish you the best as you cope with whatever it is that you are struggling with. You are missed.

Marian Fortunati said...

Hi again, Marsha....
I was thinking of you and hoping that you are getting well and that your holidays will be spent happily with your daughter and grandchild(ren?).

Be well.
