The Viking and His Lady -Paint Party Friday


One year ago today, I lost the love of my life.  This drawing felt exactly right--to honor my husband and the love we shared--perfect for this week's Paint Party Friday. 

I miss Alan so much.  And yet life goes on.  Without both the rain and sun--there would be no rainbows, there would be no hope.  And I have the wonderful hope that I will see my Beloved again one day.

Life is fragile, sweet Friends.  Treasure your family.  Time spent with them is precious and irreplaceable. ((hugs))

Happy Paint Party Friday, all you wonderful artists and beautiful people. God bless you, dear ones.  Have a lovely weekend and thank you for dropping by.

I'm not going to lie, this post made me cry big crocodile tears. Such a beautiful honour and that it could touch me so far away. You keep his spirit alive beautifully. I love it when you speak of your love. Some never find what you had in their lifetime!! Some have it for a short time.. It is a gift and always needs to be honoured!! If only others understood that as you do! Thanks for this post and sharing the love of your life!!

Hugs Giggles
