Fishing For Blog Love

I just love all my blog buddies! You all just keep me going. Every single one of you....well with the exception of the occasional know who you are! LOL I just think we are so lucky to live in a world where we can form these wonderful and encouraging relationships. I have to say, if I saw most of you at a store or something....just passed by you....I would not know you. But, if I saw your blog without your banner or just your art even, I would know it was you. I have even spotted some of your work in several magazines. I will just be thumbing through and all of sudden I spot you!!!! I get so excited. I know her! I'm pointing and sometimes jumping up and down......people are looking at me funny. I just had to say that. I appreciate you all!

Yesterday was a hard day to start! My husband and I were so worried as we had gone 2 days without hearing from Cody. He would not answer his cell phone, email, texts or anything. My husband was about to have a cow and I was trying to keep him calm and act like he was being silly and overly protective. After all, Cody is a man now. "Let him be....he is probably just having fun with his friends since it is his days off" Then I had to go to Walmart to get away from hubby and have a nervous break-down. Oh, all the things that go through your head. Anyway, long story short, hubby called the AFB that Cody is at, had them go and check on Cody and probably embarrassed him profusely to the point that he will never miss one of our calls again. Cody had been in bed with a little cold and did not hear his phone. Or at least that is what he said. So, hubby calls me and all is well. Well, first I had to have a crying spell (relief). Question-Does it ever get better? Do you ever stop worrying yourself sick about your children. Can we just put one of those little chips in their head like they have for pets now?

Here is my latest piece of art-"GONE FISHING". It is now available on my ETSY.
NEWS: Renea (Pocket Full of Prettys) was called out to son and daugther-in-laws yesterday as someone is thinking about making their grand appearance. I can't wait to meet little Kennedy! Keep them in your prayers please.

I have two that leave for college next year. I am sure I will be just like you! I'm glad he was OK. And I am excited for Renae too!

Whew..glad he was found, and OK!! (KIDS--make you pull your hair out!!)I TRY to think NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS!! (it helps), I also pray constantly for my daughter's protection (She knows EVERYTHING, and SOMETIMES goes days without calling!)Welcome to little Kennedy!! (Another kid to worry about..hehehe)

The funny thing is...I used to go off for days at a time (in the land before cell phones)..and NEVER called home...LOL think my parents were worried??? LOL LOL

Love the new piece! Loved catching up on your blog. AND NO you never stop worrying about your kids. Walk in faith and kiss it up to God....and yes, you still worry, but at least I don't feel so alone that way. Cheers and Happy Sunday!
