Think happy thoughts

Today was easier on dad, which was comforting in many ways. It was good to hear a smile in his voice as we briefly chatted about his morning and upcoming plans/treatment. The coming days will be challenging but we'll get through them one way or another. Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers. It really means a lot.

Well, my bloggie friend Nelly recently inspired me to step out of my comfort zone just a little with my art and simply have fun. Today's challenge for me? Sketching with a pen and leaving behind any expectations of it having to be perfect. I'm actually quite pleased with the results and look forward to doodling again tomorrow.
