My Grandma used to paint amazing lifelike scenes until her stroke. This is her only post-stroke artwork, that she swears no one will appreciate. I told her I'd ask my friends what they think. Helping Others
So proud of my daughter for making it this far. I want to encourage her as much as possible. Good Vibes
Me in October of 2018 at 340 pounds and me today at 230 pounds. Battled depression and obesity my whole life, found joy in life after meeting my wife and focusing on my mental and physical health.
It took me very long but I can finally say that I love my body and that I beat anorexia's ass. I moved on from toxic people and poor mental and pretty mean comments on my weight. I am happy now Personal Win

Well, for the ones blaming God for her getting cancer twice and still being grateful to him, well, God puts obstacles in our life (John 16:33), and they’re just to make us strengthen and test our faith on him. Everything has it’s purpose, and we as christians see no value here in this material world (maybe for other religions that also believe in God too), that’s why it doesn’t matter for us, and we’d like to be respected like everyone else from all religions are.

This reminds me of Matisse’s journey. His painted works he did earlier in his life are masterpieces. Later in life he wasn’t able to paint bc he didn’t have the same dexterity & mobility. So he started “painting with scissors” which led to his cut paper collages. Those pieces are by far my favorite Matisse works. Not only are they gorgeous but they speak to the artist’s innate desire/need to create (which I identify w as a creative myself). To me, that makes works such as those & your grandma’s even more beautiful.

Please encourage grandma to check out Matisse’s artistic journey & to definitely check out his cut paper works. Grandma should feel proud of her work & maybe seeing his works & history will help her see the value of hers as well.
