Hi everyone. Well guess what just happened to me? I have gained some wings in that I am an Angel Without Wings.  Angel without Wings Award by Nameda I was nominated by :iconlinneaphoto: who wrote some really lovely, kind things about me. :heart: Thank you Linnea. It is really lovely to feel appreciated even though I just do my thing. I am delighted that you like me doing my thing :D

So that has just happened which surprised me and made me happy. Some of you know that May has not been the kindest of months to me although it has all ended as well as I could have hoped for. More health issues (not mine this time) involving the discovery of a brain tumour in someone very close to me, finding out it is inoperable because of it's location, a biopsy and the wait for the results of the biopsy. The results were good by the way. (A benign meningioma. Just some radiotherapy to control it a bit) ) All of this has been very stressful and draining emotionally and physically.  And yet, here we are in June and things are looking more positive already. There were times two or three weeks ago when I was struggling. Things looked bleak and I was fearing the worst as you do. I felt a long way from hope at that time yet somehow you keep moving forward each day and putting on your brave face. 

And now I am an Angel Without Wings. :D With the news that the tumour was benign, the surgeon called it an angel. It seems all things are linked in this life in one way or another. 

I would just like to say, once again, that my friends at dA have helped me through this time. Some through being prepared to listen to me talk about it. Some through just being their normal, wonderful selves and therefore just the distraction I needed. Again and again I find myself here as a refuge from the more difficult aspects of life. This is my bolt hole. My den. My oasis. My comfort blanket. I have many dear friends here and I look for you all whenever I am here. Thank you so much for all that you do for me. 

It has been a little while since my last journal as I have been rather busy but here, at last, is my chance to share and showcase your works. Sit back and enjoy some of my favourites from the last ten weeks or so. Make yourself a cup of tea and put your feet up. Don't rush. There is plenty of time to enjoy them.

Lawrence -- thanks for taking the time to do this. It means a lot. DA is enormous, and distilling all of it to what caught the eye of someone with a great eye, is really informative. And a gift and a blessing. I'm happy to know you, in the very small measure that I do. Best regards, and sincere wishes for an ecstatic summer. GLUM.

I haven't been into DA properly for a wee while and hadn't read your journal. I'm so sorry you and your friend have had such a tough time but so glad that the tumour is benign. I love the angel without wings ...I am sure that is exactly what you have been.. Take good care of yourself my friend.Huggle!
