Before I get to my challenge post, could I please share something quite personal? I know I haven't been my usual upbeat self lately.. short posts, nothing extra to post.. mojo missing, etc... but I have a good excuse (and I'm sticking to it!!). My oldest son, Thom has been one of my heroes, and especially now. He heard about an unexpected opening with an Army company heading to Afghanistan, and although he was deferred from immediate deployment during an education leave, he offered to join them. Am I proud that he volunteered to fill the position? Yes 'cause that's the way I raised him. But, as his mom, for me it's a double-edge sword.. I'm a very proud yet a very protective grizzly bear and it's hard to see him leave.
Here's my hero all decked out in his uniform.. and he's almost smiling!! (they aren't supposed to smile in official photos!)
I'm hoping that if I talk about Thom leaving it will be better for me to get through this and with the help of so many of my blog and DT friends, you will help me get through this tough year ahead. Please keep my Thom in your special thoughts and/or prayers.
Now, onto the reason you stopped by.. it's challenge time at Mo's Digital Pencil and that very talented lady always has so many great digis up her sleeve. Here's one of her newer images that I used for Lisa's Glitz and Glimmer challenge. With a house full of men, I don't often get to focus on girly stuff and this fairy was fun to work on. I think I need a granddaughter.. or something! Ya think??
Thanks so much for stopping by, friends. I so appreciate you! Have a fantastic day and be safe in all you do! Sending hugs your way, Peggy
