"Mix It Up with Melange" Challenge ~ CHANGE


Change. Change of heart. Change of plans. Change in health. Change in mood. This week's challenge over at the Melange Team Blog is CHANGE. There couldn't have been a more perfect prompt to fit my week than this word...change.

My youngest came down with a flu bug of some kind and at that instant, anything I had planned for the week changed. Instead of accomplishing my tasks, my hours have been filled taking care of my little patient. While sitting with him I was able to work in my journal. That's one of the wonderful things about a journal...their portability. When my plans to create in my studio changed, I could still create art and sit beside my little buddy feeding him spoonfuls of Italian ice.

Come on over and join in on the fun of the Melange challenges. They are posted every Wednesday (with a sneak peek on Mondays) and are open to everyone. Hope to see you there!

I love this piece, Nancy, and I can so relate! Change seems to be my middle name... I notice that as soon as I have a nice routine going and have made plans for what I'm going to be doing, it all changes. ;)

I hope your little patient is feeling much better already!! Hugs, Silke

This is lovely and true. I am hoping your little guy feels better soon and won't become too ill. I'll bet he could keep a great journal of his own, all about BUGS of many kinds including the FLUey one.
