Today’s painting was inspired by that saying, ‘when life gives you lemons.’ I love painting lemons with my flower bouquets.
Here is my lemon story that thankfully I was able to make lemonade with. Shortly after we moved to NM, I was having this weird eye thing going on. I had mentioned it to Todd, and he said check your blood pressure. How did Dr. Todd know that? I had a blood pressure cuff and checked it on a Friday afternoon. I can’t believe I am sharing this…my blood pressure was very high 200/110 stroke level and scary. The more I took my pressure the higher it was getting.
Yikes, I was on the anxiety train. All is well now, and I have it under control thanks to my amazing new doctor.
Lesson: Be kind to myself and don’t be a maniac trying to do all the things all the time. I’m working hard on that part of my life.
