Miriam now speaks of her day.  A day of healing.

I went out with a good friend today…I can say my best friend now.  We haven’t seen each other since before Christmas.  It took all my courage to face my anxiety and fears and just do it!  It was a gift to myself.  I was sort of numb inside but I did it.  And nothing bad happened!  We were alright and spent an enjoyable lunch together.

I had been painting for my daughters and thought of her often because I had promised to paint a portrait of her dog.  She had four paintings/drawings to choose from and chose two pastels.  One was with the old technique I use and one was with a new paper and therefore a new technique.  I was surprised she liked the new technique but she said it had a softer quality to it.  It was done with U-art paper.  So thinking of her I finished all the portraits and invited her out for lunch.  She treated me too but that’s another story.

The important thing is that I faced another fear today with courage.  I am slowly digging deep and realizing that yes I do have courage.  My counselor told me to make a paper mache mask of a warrior.  Which I am doing now.  It had to dry.  Now I’m ready to paint it.  I’ll paint gems on it too!

Until next time…
