If you could paint your current mood onto a canvas, what would that painting look like? What would it depict?
My friend has been going through a tough time lately and I find myself thinking of her many times throughout the day. I wonder if she’s comfortable. I wonder if she’s in pain, or if she’s getting a few breaks from all the health challenges she’s been going through.
I also wonder if she’s scared, the way I am scared of losing a friend.
I discovered her by being a fan of the actor who became, for a time, my muse, and inspired me to return to writing again. My friend writes, too, and this morning, I saw that she published a new story on Wattpad, where my stories can also be found. She writes Lady Oakenshield stories that make me smile, especially since I write sad things 90% of the time. However, I’ve yet to read her story this morning – only because I wanted to draw her a picture first, and send it to her.
Fortunately, today’s Daily Prompt helped seal the deal in that department, so this is how I feel right now. A bit melancholic, a bit relieved. Very grateful. And though you don’t see it in the picture that I drew of her (I am not a blonde – though I remember that she is. Hmm…now I sure hope so!), my heart was doing the happy dance the entire time I drew it.
I am happy to see that she is getting better, getting stronger each day. I hope to see her in person one day, and laugh and cackle like the crazy women that we are, at inside jokes and everything else.
She’s a tough woman, this amazing friend of mine, just like the Arkenstone she named herself after – and I’m so happy to call her my friend.

This was nice and I like your drawing. It reminds me how important it is to have friends that genuinely care and when one hurts the other feels the pain and does all they can to comfort the other. WE should all hope to have a friend so dear.
Thank you so much, Willy! I haven’t really played with colors in my drawings so this is a new one for me. But for a friend, I’ll try anything 🙂
That’s lovely, and a beautiful drawing. I hope your friend continues to get better.
Thanks, Dr Ali! Me, too!
How can I help but get better with a friend like this?
Okay. So here I am crying my eyes out! Thank you is so…so. Let me just say the only thing in my heart, I love you.
I love you, too, Arkie!
