"My Sincerest ...

to each of you...from the very bottom of my heart.
Each and every Day...

and each and every Night...
your thoughtful good wishes for my mom's
speedy recovery
reach my computer and lodge themselves snuggly in my blog.
They are a major energy boost
a refreshing way to end these hectic days.
We are off again in just a bit
back across the valley to the hospital
I expect the next few days will be much the same.

The heart above is a paper strip collage
of oriental calligraphy
I wove into a heart shape..."Day"
and then digitally flipped to show "Night."
This weekend
there is a huge Chinese New Year celebration
at the Chinese Cultural center in Phoenix
with lots of art, food, music, dragons
and ceremonial dancing...
What a great sketchbook page that would have made!
For now though...
I have just a paper heart sent with thanks to you
from me. :)

I hope you find that your Mom is recovering at a rapid pace. Be careful driving across the Valley.

This heart is so pretty, day or night.

I am rooting very hard for your Mom. I have to have knee surgery. Do not know how severe yet. Hope just repair. I know she will be glad she had it done. I have known several who waited and really were sorry they had not had it done early.
