I had a rough start to my day. After my second knee replacement surgery I was reminded of the intense pain management that is needed.
Once I pushed through it and finally found a way to rest my pain ravaged body, I awoke from a peaceful sleep feeling very glad that I was given this time to slow down.
Just like my art, time connects you to who you are, who you are meant to be and allows you to breathe. Medicine for your soul.
Most of the time I can push through my pain by listening to music and or painting. This helps while away the time and gives my heart and soul a cuddle to strengthen my journey. I know I have an ending to all this and it is an ending I know will change my life. I live daily with pain and physical limitations due to the disease which has required my knee replacement surgery. I feel oh so lucky to have been given a new start. I look forward to walking to the park with my granddaughter, going back to England, scenic walks and getting through my day physically exhausted yet not pain ravaged. So much to look forward to.
I have been making a piece of art through all this and today I called it done. This butterfly represents a life worth living even if it is short. Living is beautiful and a gift. Give yourself the gift of living even when it is tough. This time that I need to heal, is also giving me time to make my art and that is a gift.
Here is my beautiful butterfly titled simply ‘Live’.
