What I really mean to say.

Dear Friends,

I was going to start a blog post about my new mixed media painting "Don't Quit Your Daydream".......and talk about dreams, and hopes, and love, and all kinds of inspirational things.

daydream

The truth of the matter is, I just can't do that today.

My heart is heavy.

I recently heard that my cousin was diagnosed with breast cancer.  That makes 5.  Five people I know personally (4 are under the age of 45) that have breast cancer. This is not including the other 4 people I know who have already been through it. I am scared for them, I can't stop thinking of them. I wonder what in the world is going on. Why are so many women getting this?  We don't need anymore breast cancer awareness, I think we are all quite aware.  We need more funding in breast cancer kicking ass treatment.

I cancelled my vendor booth space today at the farmers market to go to a fundraiser for one of my friends to help with medical bills.  I often wonder how I could financially make it something like that.

My thoughts today are not of inspiration and daydreams, my thoughts are with these women who have to be brave and take one day at a time.    I wish I could say something to them to make them feel better, hell....I wish I was better with saying something at all!  I am awful with words and everything comes out in a big jumbled, awkward sentence.  I am not very good with communicating with words, so perhaps that is why I paint! :)  So on that note.....I am sending positive vibes and hugs to all of you!

Love, Carla
