And Auntie Kimmy was luck enough to spend some sweet time with them both at my sister's house last week.
You know there was art making involved.
Tom's tree and church...
I sewed the flags onto a ribbon and we decided to tie them between two trees that flank the path that leads us to the Petit Cabane (little cabin) in the woods at the back of the house...
Thomas' day with me also included painting some t-shirts. We used fabric paints, some super cool stencils and fabric markers.
I could have spent a week there ! So beautiful, so calming, so fun, and so full of loving vibes.

I unfortunately had to cut my trip a little short so I could go spend some healing/nursing/loving time with my sweet Mom who badly broke her tibia (could any break be good ?) in a fall.
I was so glad that it worked out that I could spend a few days helping her figure out ways to get around her apartment without putting any weight on her leg, feeding her some yummy, healthy food prepared with love and offering her some sweet daughter comfort wherever I could.
The pain is getting gradually better, thank God, and my Mom amazes me with her strength and positive attitude. It looks like it will be a long haul for her this summer but I know she will be okay through it all, thanks to her Faith and with a little help from her friends. If you could add your prayers, positive juju/mojo rising to the good stuff heading her way, I would appreciate it so very much.

I am back home now, feeling a little lost and unsure where I belong or what I should be doing. I do know that some art making is a big time MUST because my artist spirit and my fingers are itching to get some paint on a page !!!!
David has taken Thursday and Friday off so we will have a yummy extra long weekend together which is sure to put me right again. I think a day at the beach in this HEAT Wave will be in order tomorrow ! Bring on the icy cooler drinks, the umbrella, the sunscreen and the freezing cold Atlantic waters....
Here's to July 2010, Beautifu Ones, and living each moment of it to the fullest !
