My Daughter's Etsy Shop!

I have a very creative daughter that you haven't met, and now I would like to introduce you to her. Rachel has been a blessing to us since she arrived 16 years ago. Watching her grow has been the highlight of our lives. She has a beautiful smile and a big, beautiful heart to match! She also sings, dances, and loves her sport of softball! She has another artistic side, too. She has loved to draw and paint since she was big enough to hold an instrument in her hands.  Yesterday, she finally listed two items in her Etsy shop! Yay! She will be working on painting and listing more soon!  I would love for you visit her shop and she would be thrilled!!

Please click the link below to get there:

She also has a blog that she would love for you to visit and/or follow:

I also have a post about her art on my other blog, Color My World, that you will find @

Light at the End of the Tunnel!!

Well, I hope that's what I'm seeing anyway! Finally got to have the MRI done on my back last Thursday. That little pill they gave me to relax my fear of that closed-in space was a story within itself! I certainly gave my family a few good laughs for the afternoon! But, I made it through the test without crawling out of the machine and ticking everybody off! The nurse called today and I have bulging discs at L3 and 4 and L4 and 5 vertebrae, so off I go to see another doctor at the end of the month. Hopefully, I am getting closer to a conclusion for this pain I have endured since May! I am more than ready to be able to participate in life again!
