For some reason, this painting is my favorite. I have had it for 25 years. But it is just as meaningful to me as it was when I first received it. As someone very special gave it to me.
I wanted you to see where I hung the Apothecary sign I picked up at Hobby Lobby on clearance for under $7.
Now for our weekly Welcome Wagon Friday.

Cozy Blanket is Debby’s blog. Debby is a wife, mother and grandmother. She has a son with special needs. She is also a cancer survivor. I must tell you this special story I found on her blog.
The morning after her second surgery, she woke up crying. She told her husband she felt that something was wrong. He said, “There is. The doctor called last night after you fell asleep and said that you have cancer.” The first thing she said was: “But I want to have grandkids.”
Debby was selling real estate at the time. She didn’t want to talk to adults about having cancer. So she went to work at a daycare center. She would rock the babies and forget her troubles.
While working at the daycare center, she met a little boy that needed a home. And so after a time they brought him to live with their family.
Debby’s wish was always to be a clown; to be surrounded by laughter. So she went to Clown Town and learned how to be a clown. She also went back to college and earned a degree. She had loved children all her life, and she says being with them was the best therapy ever.
It has been 20 years since her bout with cancer. She says she is thankful for all 20 of them.
