Here is my completed entry for the Chronic Pain Awareness Month (New Zealand) charity auction/competition. As mentioned in my last post, this year’s theme is ‘the soul within’.
The competition is open to anyone who has a relationship with chronic pain and I suffered from monster migraines when I was a child. Doctors and specialists told me that I would ‘grow out of them’ and I have to admit they were right. It took more than twenty years (!!!) but they did eventually, slowly, bit by bit, diminish over time. The headaches I get now simply don’t compare. I’ve also had RSI/OOS in my hands. With rest, therapy, and a complete change of lifestyle, the condition is now under control. I still have bad days but it’s something I can live with. And I am very, VERY thankful.

It’s a beautiful picture. Migraines are awful, mine have lessened with age and I’m hoping they’ll continue to.
Thanks, Kate. I hope your migraines do continue to improve. They’re horrible things. But, like hitting your head against a brick wall, it feels great when they stop : )
You have my vote!!!!! Good Luck!!! 🙂 Take Care and God Bless Kenny T
Thanks, Kenny. The judges should be announcing the winners next week (not my motivation for entering but I’m still curious).
There’s something so endearing about sparrows :). Yours is beautfiully drawn and painted.
Thank you! Yes, there really IS something about sparrows (and ducks too). I could watch them for hours.
Indeed! I’m fascinated by mallard ducks!
Oh soooo cute! I love birds… and love that you posted this on my birthday!
Thanks, Bec. And a belated “happy birthday to you” for last month : )
