First things, first. I am not a watercolorist, let's make that perfectly clear. BUT I am trying to teach myself some of the skills of working with watercolors and I have been enjoying the process. Actually, I just really like playing around and seeing how the colors dry and where there are neat little puddles of color! So in the effort to push myself to learn new skills and work outside my usual comfort zone, here is the watercolor I made of my daughter Corey's Sweetest Day flowers (which are now black and brittle in the same vase out on our back porch... she won't throw them away!).
I must say, I meet the nicest people there... I took care of someone yesterday who made me realize how ridiculous all of my tiny little complaints are, and they really are... this man had endured more suffering than I can imagine and yet he never, ever, uttered a single complaint while he was in my care. And his wife couldn't understand why people had been so kind and accomodating towards her after her husband's initial injuries. I was just blown away by these two... he became my hero and she became my example of humility. People were kind and accomodating towards her because she was kind and accomodating herself! I really believe we attract the kind of treatment we receive by the kind of behavior we exhibit. It was truly a privilege to take care of that couple. I needed to be reminded just how fortunate I am.
