THIRTY FIVE, BRING ON 'DEX' and 'BUNZO'


Weekly Challenge #217
'Dex' vs 'Bunzo'


"HAPPY, HAPPY 35th BIRTHDAY TO YOU, LAURA!!"

   Following Laura's instagram and I am the Diva, CZT blog, you will learn a lot about her love and strength that goes out to taking care of her lil' son. Her son Artoo has Moebius Syndrome, which you can learn more about on her blog. She spent a good part of last week in the hospital with him, but thank God they are home and he is feeling much better. Yay!!!! Just in time to celebrate her 35th BIRTHDAY!!!! What a blessing to be able to be home and healthy and ready to celebrate!!!
"Laura you are such a top notch example of Strength, Love and Courage!!!! Many blessings for you and your lovely little family!"

Such a busy week..........
   My son had a biography book report due last week and he made his First Holy Communion on Saturday. So, mom was busy!
This is him dressed in character for Leonardo DaVinci.

Just some of the rocks I did for his Communion, but I ended up giving these ones to the noon aides at their school because it was appreciation week. Those noon aides are like Angels watching over our children when we can't be with them!! 

I wrote, "When you think of me, pray that I may hear (or answer)  God's call." I put that on each rock because we can all use a prayer and what best can I ask for my child , than for him to answer God's call, in life!

Sadness of the week,.....
 
The last family photo with Grandma.
   Last Wednesday, my mother-in-law passed away. What a woman of Strength!!! She would've been 90 this July. She suffered from Parkinson's which led to other health problems. Thank God, she really only suffered the last 2 weeks of her life. Such a beautiful and courageous woman!!! She had hospice and family, at her bedside. What a peaceful and memorable way to leave this world. 
"Grandma, you will be missed very, very much! Watch over us from above, until we will see you again!"

Have not seen every post but yours is the first that used Bunzo to make the numerals. Nice touch. I like the rocks. I have a bag of them in the closet. Have yet to do anything with them.

P.S. Those rocks rock!

Wonderful Tile, Annette. Donald has a sharp eye. I didn't even notice that your Bunzo made the number 35, I was so intent on enjoying your beautifully render Bunzo pattern and the wonderful highlights you used. The number was a stroke of genius a so well done. Love your rocks. Condolences on the passing of your Mother-in-Law. Blessing to you and your family. It is so tough to lose a loved one.

Wonderful tile! So lovely idea to make a "35" with Bunzo!
Joy and sadness in a week ... that´s life!
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I really feel with you because my dear dad died in peace and without pain four weeks ago. My thoughts are with you and your family.
Hugs, Annette

Wow...almost 90 years old...she sounds like a wonderful mom-in-law. It doesn't matter how old though, it's never enough time with those we love. Blessings to all of your family. Your creations for Laura was thoughtful and inspiring too! Hope this next week is slower for you!

So sorry to hear about your MIL - a good age but hard to let go at any time, bill's auntie was just short of 90 when she passed away last May & my mum would have been 85 a week before...both Pams!

The art is incidental at this stage...but glad you managed to make some through it all.

Hugs

Sally

Your tile and your rocks are beautiful.
I'm sorry to hear of your loss, but what a good thing that she did not suffer for a long time.
This week, my eldest sister (90) wanted us to come and say farewell because she will not live much longer. In hospital for a week now, for the first time in her life!
Getting old this way is what we all want!

I loved reading your post today. Your challenge tile is so beautifully rendered, the linework is very well done. The rocks are amazing - the more I see rocks with artwork on, the more I want to try it. You do beautiful work. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss and please accept my condolences. It's never easy to say goodbye to someone close. Prayers for you and your family.
