Sometimes Good Things Happen While You Wait

I'm still doing a lot of waiting around, as my daughter hobbles here and there; waiting out severe weather that spoils plans to go to the pool, the one place she can go and remove her splint; waiting to get through automated prompts as I try to talk through insurance issues.

But all that would make it sound like I'm having a bad time. In fact, I've had an EXCELLENT last two days. Here's why:

- A review I submitted in January of an exhibit called Standing Ovation has been published in the Summer 2010 SAQA Journal;

- My piece, Departure, was selected for publication in the Members' Gallery of the Summer 2010 SAQA Journal;

- This same piece, Departure, was awarded an Honorable Mention at The Main Street Gallery's 2010 National Small Art Quilt Works Exhibition; and,

- Most importantly, the doctor has said that my daughter's patience with treatment has paid off; she's healing beautifully. Still lots to do over the next few months, but we can see a light at the end of the tunnel. Yippee!
