Taking a short break from Willowing.

Hello my artsy friends.  Just a quick post to say I have experienced some life setbacks and will not be posting my Willowing art for a few days. 

My Father has been hospitalized with a serious condition that is almost identical to the condition that killed my husband.  My Mom and him need my support right now and I need your prayers as I relive this nightmare.

Unfortunately, I was in a serious auto accident on the way to the hospital to meet with my Dad's doctors and my beautiful Jeep Grand Cherokee my husband bought me is totaled.  I am hurt but not seriously.  I was not at fault and her insurance co. will pay for everything.  She ran a stop sign at a high rate of speed and T-boned me.  I have a lot of witnesses including two police officers that were walking along the sidewalk!  I lost control of the car and was airborne. It was the scariest thing ever.

As I am disabled, my Jeep SUV is fit for me special and was my only way to be independent.  It is a hard blow to me and double with my father's illness.  If I can convince them to try to fix it it will take 2 months and there is no rental car in this small town that I can drive.  I do have my big truck to get around town but I can only drive it short distances with my disability. 

So I will not be getting around much and I will be praying my dad can pull through this liver failure and tumor of his pancreas.  We don't know yet if cancer is involved.  He has responded well to the stint they put in the liver so far and function is slowly improving.

Please remember us in your prayers and I'm a huge believer in the power of positive thinking.  Please send some my way!

Thank you all - you are all very special to me!

Forever in art,  Jessica <3

Hearing the news about your Dad and your accident has left me stunned to say the least. I know you are reliving the night mare with Mark as I do with my Dad and Mark also. Know that my prayers are with you and my arms are around you. Give your parents my love and prayers.

Oh my goodness!! How awful and scary! I'm so sorry, and I will pray for you and your parents. I hope that everything settles down for you soon, and everyone heals quickly (including your car!).
