Wishing All Well

I have no picture for you all today, but I wanted to get in a post on the last day of 2012.
Just a little catch up first--
I haven't been in my studio very much and almost none since my Mom fell on Nov 18th. Since we have been at the Doctors a lot. Fortunately nothing is broken, but she is still having pain even after an XRay, an MRI, and a giant steroid shot. I did have a lady coming one day a week to help Mom while I had a day out to play, but I have now had to hire her to come in 4 days a week to help me. Mom has had some adverse reactions to pain meds, which was a real trip and not a physcadelic one either. So my helper lady is my day time girl and I'm the night time gal. I have to give a big shout out here to all the people who work in nursing homes or take care of their ill and aging relatives. Trust me people that is a real gift. These past weeks have been very wearing, but I keep repeating a couple of little mantras: What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. And, Stiffen that backbone, look straight ahead, and keep steppin'.
I've got a few goals in mind for 2013 and I hope all you out there who make New Year Resolutions are able to keep them as the new year progresses.
I have gotten some Zentangles made over the last year and a couple of days ago I decided to mount them in a journal type book, I will decorate the cover later. Now they will all be in one place and not be floating in my studio.
2012 has been a very eclectic year for me. Lots of ups and a few downs, but it's the downs that make you appreciate the ups all the more.
I hope everyone has had a happy Holiday season and I want to wish you all the best and much Happiness in the New Year 2013 !!!

Happy Creating-
