Creativity soothes our souls…

Can’t believe it’s been almost a year since my last post!  Life certainly has taken over this past year…with my sisters’ health issues and coping with many other “trials” sent our way.

While working through all our “trials”, we focused on music, art and creativity…there was a lot of singing, dancing, piano playing, sewing, needlepoint, watercolour painting…girlie and I were invited by our piano/voice instructor to perform in her production of Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas earlier this year.  Music really soothes our souls…while I was given the part of playing Belinda for one of 2 performances (and being a part of the chorus), girlie was given a small vocal part as the Spirit and assigned to choreograph her own little dance for both performances!

This past week, I had an extra day off and started painting Chloe – girlie’s stuffy.  Handmade by me when she was 3…Chloe was hiding in her X’mas stocking…I still remember the look on her face when she found Chloe…now that Chloe is tattered and looking extremely loved, it’s good to capture her on a wee Aquabord.

Considering how crazy things were and packed our schedules were…we managed to really eek out some growth this past year!  This hopefully means that we are ready for a more challenging year ahead of us!
