There are a lot of storms in our lives both big and small. After the initial shock of the storm hitting, I work really hard to see any good there might be from the event. There isn’t always dancing, but since I am a relatively optimistic person I choose to head that way. I haven’t had any catastrophic losses so my dances happen pretty fast, but sometimes they are tentative dance steps.
The stomach churning, grieving pain, and yes, physical pain from mental anguish and physical pain in general is not something you can just turn on or off. There is a process and we can’t do anything, but go forward. Everyone has a different timeline for healing and we need to support without criticism their process. If I need to just sit and hold someones hand or just sit, I want to support them and let them know that someone is there for them.
I've been taking a class at Baylor on 2-D design and it is a joy to now see why a piece of my work works. Before I just did it by instinct and now my world has opened up to see why things are good or bad. I hope you enjoy this little quilt.
