Beloved SIL Disappoints MIL

Yesterday morning my daughter called to tell me that my beloved SIL was taking the girls snowboarding and skiing for Spring Break instead of making a trek to the Beaches of South Walton so that their loving grandparents could spent a week with their grand daughters. He had his wife , my daughter, deliver this unhappy message because he suffers from MIL FEAR, otherwise known as Avoid Grammy's Anger! At first I thought, this man doesn't know who he is messing with... then I decided to act grown up and mature and channel my emotions and feelings into a painting.

Painting always releases and soothes away the "bumps in the path of life." AND NOT seeing my grand daughters during Spring Break is a definite Bump in my scheme of life things. So I decided that a way to release my emotions was to paint a picture of my beloved SIL.

As I painted and "slung" the paint onto the canvas, I started to become calm and almost peaceful. Since my son-in-law does visit and read my blog from time to time , I wanted him to know that Grammy Ann holds no hard feelings against him... and hopes he never experiences any other hard feelings ever.

I did want to share my beloved SIL painting on my blog, am kinda of proud of it, ... it still needs a little work ... like a few darts, and a few slashings.. but at least I feel better as I stand back and look at it.

Now to give it a name, all works of art need a name, does Jackass fit?

I love the fact that you are so able to release your emotions through art! Therapy, indeed, and SIL will definitely appreciate your forbearance... :) ahem...
