Thank you and my take on IF this week...."Drifting"

Hi Everyone....firstly I would like to thank all of my wonderful blog friends for helping us through this most difficult time...I think the shock hasn't worn off yet.....Today is the visitation and we thank you for your support and prayers during this very sad time.....

I created a piece for the IF Prompt this week...."Drifting" .....at first I was going to do something sad....but then I found some comfort in my sketchbook and my ink...and created my flying chickens....everyone knew chickens couldn't fly....but Randy Rooster wanted the new hens to know that anything is possible if you Believe....so he got them all hooked into their parachutes and they were "Drifting" all day....and now that they believed anything was possible Randy's job was done.....

Have faith in your dreams and always know that there may be a way to do what you want to do....you just have to take a chance and believe.....

Hugs
Diana

I will pop by and see you all soon!!! thank you again for your support!
