The blessing of family -- and flowers at the ready.

It's been a long but good day -- spent mainly
at the hospital waiting for a relative to get
treatment.  At times like these -- and all
went well -- you know how lucky you are
to have family who care about each other,
laugh and joke and make hard times much
easier. I felt quite blessed to be part of a
loving bunch.

Tonight I didn't have time to draw, but found
this (as far as I know) unpublished drawing
on my iPad.  I'm sure I did it in Nova Scotia,
at the height of summer -- so it gives me
great pleasure to look at it today.  It is
incredibly cold here -- and it's been a
challenge staying warm even inside the house.
So the sight of bright flowers, sunlight,
water, and even some clouds made me
very happy.   I also like how using my
finger to draw on the iPad gives it a free

Have a feeling-blessed-with-relatives day.
