there are many times when I long to feel the passion again that I have
 felt when creating an art page. With photos or without, just painting
 or with some collage. It really did not matter but I did not want to
waste time sleeping and loved every minute of it. Since I had the fall
 in January when I broke my lower vertebraes - I have not felt interested
 in creating anything. It's almost as if there is a message in it and maybe
there is. Maybe I spent too much time on the computer or behind my desk
 and had very little time for my family and friends? Though I am a great
 believer in doing what you want to do as long as you don't hurt anyone
 and creating digital art certainly was not hurting anyone but maybe my
 priorities were mixed up. Then in July I had my left hip totally replaced
 and I am still recovering from that event.

  It has been an awful year starting with the shingles and ending with my
 husband not knowing if he will be able to celebrate his birthday in March.
 In the meantime we are both aware of time. Time flies when you know
that your life is limited suddenly. Good news: the CT scan came back
improved. It bought time. How much ? nobody knows. Weeks or months?
 We are both trying to think very positive in terms of months or even a
 year.

An amazing and unexpected gift from a lady who I have yet to meet.
Thank you, dear Sarah. I want to share it with everyone, it is just so lovely.

You really did have an awful year, and we all know the time coming will not be easy either. Still I do want to wish you all the best in the year that's coming. Sometimes the small things can make you smile and give you a moment of happiness, I don't know. I hope the time that is giving to you and your husband will be as good as possible and give you the strength to go on!
Still regularly thinking of you Sabina,

hugs Jeannette

Beautiful bouquet Sabina and a lovely capture of something so special. I think of you often. Not wanting to intrude or cause pressure to get into the computer I just browse. Haven't been into any blogs in weeks until now. I do feel a lift in your 'voice' and that sits well. Good for you. Hugs and love as always. I am still here.

Hi dear friend, I cannot imagine how last year must have been for you and your family. But I do hope you will find a way to deal with this all. I think a lot about you and Mario and I wish we lived closer to each other so I could visit you every once in a while. Now I can only visit you in an digital way and I find it hard to tell you the right words in English and on the internet.
Hugs, Irene

Cara Sabina,

ti saluto molto cordialmente in questo Nuovo Anno 2014 e ti auguro che, nonostante la malattia del tuo marito e tuo, sia buono!
Dio è buono anche quando ci fa sperimentare il dolore, la sofferenza, la morte... Io continuo a pregare per te e per la tua famiglia.
Nelle tue parole traspare la pace e la speranza... continua così!
Un forte abbraccio, Maja
