Happy to be Back!

Here are a couple of tags that I completed today for the Tag Tuesday blog.  I am so happy to be able to start blogging again!  I have been away for several months.  By way of explanation, last year, unfortunately, was a very rough one for us, and so many things got in the way, I had to put my blog on the back burner.  One of my daughters was in the hospital for 12 days and I was so scared we would lose her; happily, she is doing just fine now.  All the worry and stress, and the trips back and forth to the hospital several times a day, plus taking care of the grandchildren, were hard on me, but I was sure I was strong enough to do it all.  Then my husband's boss closed his business, and so my hubby lost his job and there went our medical and dental insurance, etc., and he was out of work for several months.  We decided to sell our house and move into an apartment so that we would be able to save the equity we'd built up, and we sold our home in just 2 days!  Crazy! Moving was stressful (as it is for everyone!) and I ended up developing stomach problems a few months ago.  THEN I ended up in the ER 2 days before Christmas with severe stomach pain--and was really ill for several days--doing better now, and again, happily, our prayers were answered and my hubby is employed and things are looking up.  So . . . now it's time to begin anew and get back to one of my loves, ART!
