KEYS 4 ART 2013!!!

Well, today is the first day of Keys 4 Art 2013!  Well,  technically it's tomorrow but today I get the key to the rental house and start taking things over and organizing!!! I swear we need a UHAUL to take everything!!! So excited.

The underlying theme for this year is GRATITUDE.  It's so easy to get boggled down in every day problems and not see the forest for the trees isn't it?

My great friend Eileen is coming and she and WE had a scare with her being diagnosed with possible breast cancer!  She underwent 16  radiation treatment and says that bur for a sore boob and exhaustion she feels fine!  We are so so so grateful for that!!!

It's been a hard year financial on all of us but on some more than others.

It's been a tough year emotionally on some of us.

What am I grateful for?????  First and foremost that my son Charlie is healthy and sober!!!! YEAHHHHH!!!!  It's been 17 years of anguish.  I know he is still recovering but I really think this time he is going to beat it!

He is dating a really sweet girl who is really good for him.  He is working out every day and looks and feels great!

Of course I have my beautiful grand daughters to be grateful for!
Kaitlynn just turned six!

All in all, despite the heartache and trauma, life is good.  I am in a good place right now and for that I am very grateful.  It's the first time in a very long time that I can sleep at night without horrible nightmares.  It feels good.


  1. Wow, Charlie is really BUFF. Such happiness for you, Elena - and you deserve every bit of it.

  2. Charlie looks great and a nice girlfriend too!I am so happy for you!
