Thursday

I haven't posted for a few days because I have been sick at heart. If you have been following Rhonda's story, we received good and bad news,about her cancer.

The doctor received the analysis for the kidney they removed last week. The good news is her cancer was a T-1, on a scale of 1-3. The bad news is it was a progressive cancer on a scale of 1-4 hers was a 3.

As soon as she heals from the surgery she will be seeing a oncologist, to see what her options are for treatment and monitoring.
We are kinda left in the dark until then, so "friends and neighbors" please keep Rhonda and her family in your prayers.

I have been trying to stay busy playing in my little studio breaking dishes. It really is pretty good therapy.

This piece will either be a gnome house or a mushroom, depending on how you look at it. It will need to cure a few days before grouting.





Potted up few "Hen & Chickens" yesterday for my friend Marge.




My next project will be mosaicing on my front steps, just on the risers, this will be a challenge, I'll keep you posted.

  4. I'm so sorry to hear the news about Rhonda. Keeping all of you in my prayers.

    Are you a reader? If so, then you need to read the book "Broken for You" that I talk about in this post on my blog:

    If the link doesn't work go to my blog, find the label "reading on my sidebar" and click on it. It's the second post that comes up. The book is called "Broken For You". Like you, one of the main characters breaks dishes and creates art with the pieces. It's a very important part of the story. This is onen of the most moving books I've read in a very long time.
