The Morning Kiss

 Welcome to Warm Heart Wednesday,, shared by the awesome Mrs. Jenny.

 I am almost officially retired (I only work one night a week). My husband is still working full time. He has to get up at the God awful hour of 5AM. I am a night owl, having worked night work for years I find I can not make the switch to going to bed early and getting up early. Every morning right before my husband leaves for work, as I sleep, he gives me a kiss. After 31 years of marriage he still makes me feel like a Princess waiting for her Prince to awaken her. It is the best way to start a day!

Artist Journal Swap

 Welcome to "Warm Heart Wednesday" hosted by Jenny,

 I have become very fortunate in finding on line artitsts that share my passion of art. I have joined several journal swaps over the years. I am now working in a pass created by Ayala Art (Martha)in a facebook group called "Face in The World and Other Art Projects".

 The way it works is : you make a journal and suggest a theme, send it to the next artist, she creates a page then sends it to the next artist. It continues to all the contributors until it returns home to you. I have finished a page in Gina's journal. Her theme is " "How do you amuse your Muse?". I chose to paint Buddha not because he amuses my muse but because his words inspire my muse.

It warms my heart to be able to contribute my art to journals that travel the world and to receive the beautiful gifts of art from the other artists.

One Year Later

Today is "Warm Heart Wednesday" over at Jenny's blog, Nothing warms my heart more than the ability to be healthy and appreciative of the medical knowledge of our doctors.
On 11/25/14, exactly one year ago, I had a total hip replacement. It was the 2nd surgery on my right hip since I had fractured it on August 31, 2014. I have fully recovered and can not be more thankful  that I can walk, run, bend and do all the things that I could do before the accident.

 It has been 3 years since posting, but when Jennie posted the beginning of "Warm Heart Wednesday",, I had to join. In a time of such world atrocities what better way to focus on the wonderful things of our lives.

 Not a small thing, but a big positive thing has happened to my my Great Grandson, Kevin. He had cranial surgery to remove part of his skull bone at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. He is just 8 months old and I must admit absolutely adorable! The surgery was a couple weeks ago and he is already back to his normal cute self. So thankful with a heart full of gratitude to the doctors and nurses.
