Comfort and Healing by TeaPhotography Comfort and Healing by TeaPhotography
This is dedicated to my good friend Dave :icondavincipoppalag: [who many of you may already know, and if you don't, well he's really a great guy! :aww: ]
AND this is to his wife, also though I'm not sure she could see see it, but regardless is to whom I've been trying to convey these hopes and feelings of comfort and healing over the distance, ever since she's been in the hospital since before Christmas. :hmm:

But yes, her first procedure did go well, :nod:
but there's just been a lot of waiting and waiting, for the second procedure, and being in a hospital for a very long time is always an uncomfortable thing to endure.

And while I wish comfort, healing, patience, calming, and peace for his wife, I wish the same things for Dave, too. :aww:

While I've mostly had to be the ill one in my life, which is definitely no fun, :no: I have also worn the other shoes, and while very different, it may be more difficult to have to watch your companion be the ill one, and seeing them struggle so much and be in discomfort all the time.

This is why THIS image, with ALL of my good wishes and intentions, is just as much for Dave. :heart:

Dave is a good person, who is very supportive to me. And if you do know him, you know what I mean, your own self! :D

He's also a super artist, whose work I've enjoyed ever since I've joined dA! Feel free to visit him, but here are some examples:

Dear Dave,
Thanks for being a truly great and supportive friend. :aww:
You've been awesome! :D
I'm still thinking of you and your wife, thinking thoughts of comfort and healing, and in general wishing you both the best!
Your Friend,


[NOTE: I just wanted to say, in advance, how especially grateful for anyone's :+fav: I may receive for this image. :thanks::aww::rose: I am honoured that you would enjoy or think well enough of my work here, to :+fav: it. :nod: So I thank you :thanks: profusely, and from the bottom of my heart :heart: . And because I do realize time constraints all too well, I understand, if you are unable to also leave a comment. :aww: However, whichever you may do, [or even both! :omg: ] I genuinely appreciate it beyond measure. I need you to know this now, in case I'm not capable of doing individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, which I've not been capable, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
:love: And even if you just came to view! :eyes: I am also very HAPPY :D for this! :w00t: ]

This really touched my heart so and put me in such an emotional state not just because of the beautiful and peaceful photo of a such a beautiful cat that would be a comfort to anyone but because I feel that anyone that is going through a bad time in their life and because I feel very saddened by anyone who must be ill and remain in the hospital......Although I do not know the people involved my prayers are with you and Tea I want to comment and say that your are a phenomenal lady who is kind to anyone that needs support.God bless you for all the good you do for others and I hope your friend recovers soon.
