Thank you all so much for all the warmhearted and upifting words, they mean a lot to me. They really lighten up my mood. Not that I am depressed by all this, but I am out of my comfort zone and sometimes it is all a little too much. But I wont let is really depress me, been there done that for 18 years, NO WAY I will walk hat road again.
The only thing I can do is wait and see. I only hope the waiting wont be too long.

Val: Thank you so much for your support and warm words, you are always there for me, like a few others to, at moments I can use some kind words. I love your words on the card, never thought of it that way...I love it and I still have a few cards left...one will go into my journal with your words, to remind me of what I am, what is important and of your friendship. I so wished we could meet one day.

Mea:Thank you for the tip for taking my journal and sketching tools with me, I surely will do that. In the firs place it will take of the thinking from my head, and it will help me later when looking back, one forget so easely details etc. And aldo I am sure that all will be just fine and I can go home after one day, I still will bring it with me...you never know. And yes, ofcourse Ill let all of you my dear friends, know what is going on, this feels always as a save place where I'll find some of the nicest people, always there to listen.

In real life I don't have friends, a few acquaintances ok, but real friends...no. Not after I have been hurt a lot by some I thought dear friends. And my best friend ended the relation after almost 30 years without explaining, never heard from her again. And with kids that I havent seen for more then 6 years , it is quiet.

Gitta: Thank you so much for your warm words, I will keep them in mind, ...better, I'll copie all these wonderful warmhearted words from all of you, the best medicine when my mood is in need of some uplifting words.

Steve: Thank you so much for your warm words. I am sure God will take good care of me, He will have a plan, what I don't know but maybe it is just like Gitta says, I am a much stronger person then right after my divorce. I am sure that my kids wont recognize me when they would see me. Maybe I had to go through all of this to make me strong so I never get back into that aweful long periode of depressins, 18 years more or less hybernating isn't something I would choose ever again, that;s for sure.

Cyril: Thank you too for your very kind and warm words, it really fills my eye to read all your wonderful words, I'll cherrish them and they will keep my mind happy.

Danielle: Thank you too for your kind and warmhearted words. I will stay positive, and when the worse get more grip on my thinking etc, I will re-read all of your words. They will remind me of some dear friends all around the word that support me and chear me up.

Kathy: Thank you too for your warm and kind words. they and all what is said here, do touch my heart deeply. I feel blessed by so much warmth and support...Thank you so very much, my heart feels lighter knowing tha I am not on my own, and that will help me, and also my partner, a lot. I can stay more positive, also towards him, your words will help me to face this new step in my life.

Patricia, thank you so much for your warmhearted reply. Your words are like a warm blanket, and I will surely wrap myself in it on those moments I do feel sad or down. I am positive right now and I try to think only happy thoughts and do happy things like knitting some fingerless mitts and testknitting for a wonderful designer, a very colourful scarf.
I has all the rainbow colours in it and she gave every colour it's own message, given to her by her Spiritual leader.  I think I will change those messages for each of these wonderful and warmhearted words, they mean a lot to me, more then the original words. So when it is finished I have all my friends close by and their warmhearted, supportive words. I will write all the comments in my new journal and where I place them in my scarf, it has 'eyes' in the colourblocks and when doing those, I will read and speak out one of the comments, so it will be woven/knitted in in every stitch.

Normaly I start the first of January with a new journal, this time I started allready just because of all these wonderful words. I allready have read them a few times, it warms me, and calms my heart and makes me feel very blessed and stronger.

Val: I will surely keep my pencils/coloured/watersoluble pencils handy. They are the perfect tools for journaling in bed, in a waitingroom, in the car or train, or when I go on a walk or cycletour and see something I just have to draw, I stop and take my drawingtools out of my backpack or small handbag. And now I draw, or more doodling a lot to keep myself calm and focused on happy thoughts. And I started again with Drawing made easy I still have the spoon to finish, almost done, and I allready have seen some very interessting new drawing classes, I still can start one of hose like the rose in colored pencil.
Drawing and colouring was my first love, and still the one thing I have alwasy done, and will do, It was a lifesaver when I was a kid, it helped me through tough times and still when I need to get something from my heart, pencils and drawing is the perfect thing for me. Since my ex stole my written diaries, I stopped keeping those. But now with art journaling, I can paint over words, draw symbols that only I do understand. So much saver and it holds so much more then only words.

I am sorry to hear about the theft of your journals, some people can be so cruel. I am happy for you that you have found another way to journal.

I shall expect a photo of your 'scarf of many colours' when it is finished. You won't even have to frame it....just wear it!  ;D

I look forward immensely to seeing your spoon. I have had to put the stops on at coloured pencils, I will focus on the five(?)( I seem to have lost count  :D ) other mediums I already have in my possession! As soon as I break out of this funk I'm in, I'll be splashing about in my w/c again, and powdering the boat's insides with pastel!  :heeha:    We are going to have so much fun!!!  :yippee:   
Cheers, Val

Riya, I love your cheerful bird and mostly I just love what you have done with your life.  I recall your stroke and how you persevered to train yourself to draw and paint with your other hand.  I was so in awe of what you did!!!  Hopefully this will be just another little bump along the journey. I know your strength will carry you through!!!  So glad you have a loving partner.  Hugs and well wishes to you Riya and keep us posted.
