A Gift from my Love

so, guess where I am? I am with my very dear friend Debbie.(notice the orbs??) ..we are at...
the Doobie Brothers Concert!

Lar had bought the tickets for us in April...he really wanted to go,but, it wasn't to be.

So, I asked Debbie to go and we had a grand time..the guy sitting next to her had too much to drink and smoke, so we giggled a bit about that! The sax player was awesome!
this dude reminded us of Willy Nelsons brother......he was good,too!
I was really torn about going, but, thought it was a gift from my Lar and i feel he would have wanted me to go...i swear i could see him there laughing and clapping his hands and havin a great time! I am glad i went and that Debbie was there for me too...she really is a good friend and has helped me thru so much these past few months. I am so blessed!

Redefining Who I Am.....

So many changes in my life these past few months...adjustments...not only in my physical home... but, the "home" inside soul..I am getting to know the "new" me little by little...sometimes I freak myself out..sometimes I am overwhelmed..sometimes I am scared...sometimes I am brave...sometimes I smile....and cry tears of joy, like when my friends daughter gave my this wonderfil gift...hands (if you have read my blog) are a very important symbol in my life...I will cherish this little stone forever...
So, speaking of hands...this is what my hands have been doing lately...creating wrist cuffs...this one is on its way to its new home across the land....
and a posy pin to go with the cuff.....I dyed the laces and trims...
I created this one for my SIL ( who helped me more than she could ever possibly know)...
As I created it, an idea was being born ....on the inside of the cuff I wrote.."Soul Sister"and I used an old earring and buttons that I received from our MIL...Larry's Mom
I felt like "Wonder Woman" when I put this cuff on...see the wee wings?..Pow..Zam..Zoom!!
So, this is what my hand, well, my wrist really!...wears now..I mentioned an idea was being born....
Its a "Memory Cuff".....I created this using a cuff from Larry's shirt....kinda looks like a crown in this picture!
I handdyed the laces and dedicated to him on the front
on the back I journaled some thoughts and put a secret message to Larry under his name
So, this is a piece of the new me that is emerging....I wonder what will be revealed to me next...hmmmmm
