Heal: 12 x 36, Acrylic & mixed media on deep set canvas

This was a painting I made as a gift for the CICU at Children's Hospital when I last visited. It was late May, but it already seems like ages ago, given all that has happened since then.

I think I may have been hiding a bit behind my sister's "Avery updates" these past few days. I am reluctant to share all the thoughts and emotions that continuously run through my head and heart. It's too close, too much, too fluid. It changes so often that by the time I write something down, it's no longer quite accurate. So instead, I leave you with this confusing jumble of words.

And always, gratitude. For your friendship, thoughts and prayers for my niece and our family.

PS - Avery was awakened very briefly last night -she waved at her mom & dad, wiggled her toes and opened her eyes briefly before falling back into much-needed slumber.

I feel quite emotional thinking of Avery wiggling her little toes at her mom and dad. You must be a wreck! What a roller coaster ride it has been! Strength to you, Kerri. Such a sweet thought painting the heal heart for the Children's hospital.

Kerri, your painting is beautiful and I'm sure they love it there at the hospital. So fitting and so generous of your spirit.

Yesterday I found it hard to find words to write as I had tears for little Avery. God bless and continue to "heal".

This is so touching. Not only the sentiment, but the colours you have chosen. They affirm life - vibrate with positive energy. Well done. Rest of your blog is great too. The world needs more of this. And you. Thanks.
