Time for this week's link up with Karen Beth for Tuesday @ Ten where we have a full week to write on the word prompt.
This week's word is:
This is one of the pages in my Art Journal -
no, I am NOT an artist!
Using templates and rulers,
a pencil(with an eraser)...
I make drawings,
and Zentangles -
well, what I would call a Zentangle anyway!
Using colored pencils,
and sometimes a highlighter,
I create pages of "art"...
my form of art!
The word for this week at Tuesday @ Ten is Connection. On the day I created this tangle of hearts - this drawing of hearts connected to each other with the squiggly lines - I was thinking of all the ways we are connected:
My heart is connected to each of my three children's hearts; and the hearts of their "significant" others - their husbands and wife. My heart has recently become dis-connected with my daughter-in-law due to her actions, and my confusion as to how I feel towards her...
Sometimes it just takes time to feel that connection -
or a re-connection.
My heart is connected to each of my six grandchildren! Yes, SIX!! Although my heart is connected to these six ranging in ages from 8 months old to 17 years old, I have room for all of them. I am not connecting one-sixth of my heart to each of them; I am connecting ALL of my heart to each of them!

My life is connected to so many others -
in my home life; my church life; my hobby life; my whatever life!
It is connected through family and heritage and our past, present and future!
It is connected through my church family and the love we have for our God whom we worship and serve each time we meet at His house, our church.
It is connected through my hobby - scrapbooking and card making - through the craft we each love and enjoy. We share our talents and our "stuff"; and we learn from each other.

It is connected through whatever and wherever my life's journey takes me...
And, it is connected through the words I share on my blog; whether a poem or two, or a prompted post -
or, just the words I share about my journey with Dementia's Demands...
Each of us connect in ways beyond what I ever thought would happen when I began blogging!
Connecting through our blogs and posts; through Facebook and the Groups we each belong to -
We connect through the comments we leave each other, affirming what we have written...
and encouraging each other to continue writing and sharing our journey...
