In the Stars White Poppies is a new poppy landscape freshly bloomed in Flower Mound Studio tonight. The puggies are contentedly snoring, and about a dozen new paintings are drying in the garage for the trip to a couple of Texas Hill Country galleries at the end of the month. I explained to AnnieBee she would be having another adventure soon, with the requisite visit to her favorite store, Dogologie, and a morning breakfast on the porch of the famous pastry shop, Rather Sweet. She seemed more interested in my tossing the blue elephant across the yard than any future plans. Just like her brothers, she lives in the moment!

Thank you again for all the good thoughts, the prayers, the candles, pughugs and sisterly embraces from my friends. I received two phone calls this afternoon, from two of the doctors. The radiologist called first (the gal with the cute spiky red hair) and the surgeon called second (the tall guy who was so exceptionally kind). Both seemed so happy to share good news - my biopsy showed nothing at all to be concerned about. I got a sense from each of them that they had called the instant they received the results, and I could also tell this was a call they both looked forward to making. My next thought was for the other calls they made, and the few they may have made this same day with different news. Prayer is powerful, and I believe it in wholeheartedly. Thank you for the prayer that was sent my way. I am taking those gifts and sending them forward to those dear ladies who did not receive good news. Strength to them, to their families, and to their friends for what is to come.

Oh Nancy! I have goosebumps and such a rush of relief! Thank God! I know that the news is bittersweet because as you said, there will be those who do not get such a happy call. My heart goes out to all of them. My grandma had breast cancer, my dad died of lung cancer, and my mom has had bladder cancer twice.

Love the beautiful rich greens that surround these white poppies. A gorgeous blanket background that sets off the beauty of these flowers.

My word verification is "brest."

Thank you so much for your kind words. I feel like we are all having a bit of a happy dance together, and I agree that prayer is such an important ingredient in all things, especially healing.
