 While driving around on the snow and ice filled streets of Detroit, remember you have a Guardian Angel watching out for you!  This Angel happens to be St. Michael the Archangel "one who is like God." He is the Warrior Angel who protects us in battle. Be safe as you travel about! If you happen to see someone who may need your help, "BE AN ANGEL!"

 LIFE MOVES SO FAST. SOME DAYS I RUN AROUND WITH THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD ON MY SHOULDERS, THINKING I'M HOLDING IT ALL TOGETHER MYSELF. IT'S WHEN I SLOW DOWN, AND STOP THAT I REALIZE I DON'T NEED TO CARRY IT ALL ALONE. SO TODAY, VISUALIZE YOUR GUARDIAN ANGELS AND LET THEM HELP BRING A PEACEFUL CALM TO THE MOMENT. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

"EVEN WHEN ALONE BE CHEERFUL, REMEMBERING ALWAYS THAT YOU ARE IN THE SIGHT OF ANGELS." ST. THERESE O...

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO MY MOM, CAROL LEDUC CHISHOLM. SHE TAUGHT ME HOW TO PAINT AND SHE TAUGHT ME HOW TO LIVE. ONE BRUSH STROKE AT A TIME! MAY YOUR DAY BE FILLED WITH BEAUTIFUL ROSES. YOU ARE LOVED!

I BELIEVE IN ANGELS. I BELIEVE WE ALL HAVE A GUARDIAN ANGEL TO WATCH OVER US FROM THE DAY WE ARE BORN, UNTIL THE DAY WE ARE CALLED HOME. I HAD A MOST VIVID DREAM OF AN ANGEL ONE NIGHT. I WATCHED THE MOON LIGHT DANCE ON A TABLE FILLED WITH HOLY ICONS. AS MY EYES FIXED ON THE LIGHT, IT BEGAN TO PULSE AND MOVE CLOSER TO ME. THE GOLDEN LIGHT TOOK THE SHAPE OF A HEAVENLY BEING RIGHT IN MY ROOM. I WAS STUNNED AS I SAID, "I ALWAYS DREA...

TODAY, WE HAD A FEW FLURRIES WHIPPING AROUND IN DETROIT. I REMEMBER GROWING UP AND MY DAD TEACHING ME HOW TO PROPERLY RECOVER FROM A SPIN OUT.  I PRIDE MYSELF IN BEING ABLE TO ROCK A CAR OUT OF A SNOW DRIFT. GROWING UP IN MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF SNOW MADE IT EASY TO SLAM DUNK ON THE DRIVEWAY COURT AS WE SHOVELED ALL THE HEAVY SNOW INTO ONE GIANT MOUND. I LOVE HOW THE SNOW REFLECTS PINK, PURPLE AND ORANGE IN THE EARLY MORING SKY. I DO...

MOST OF THE TIME I'M SETTING UP MY EASEL AND PUTTING MY PAINTS OUT TO START MY DAY OF PAINTING WITHOUT REALLY PAYING ATTENTION TO THE PROCESS. I KNOW OUT OF THE GATE, THE MINUTE I SQUEEZE THE PAINT TUBES I'M COMMITTED TO HOURS OF FOCUSED CREATIVITY. MOSTLY BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO WASTE MY PAINT.  I PAINT AS I LISTEN TO MY FAVORITE ITUNES PLAYLISTS, (WHICH INCLUDES MOTOWN FAVORITES) BUILDING BRUSH STROKE UPON BRUSH STROKE. I'M DR...

THE CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK TURNED A VERY PLAIN ROOM INTO A VISION INSPIRED BY THE DETROIT ZOO. THE DETROIT ZOO (ARCTIC RING OF LIFE) WAS VERY KIND TO ALLOW BEAUMONT HOSPITAL TO USE IT'S LOGO IN THE DESIGN OF THE NEW WAITING ROOM FOR THE PEDIATRIC FLUOROSCOPY UNIT. 

IT'S AMAZING TO ME TO BE BACK AT BEAUMONT HOSPITAL AS AN ARTIST. GROWING UP IN BIRMINGHAM, I WAS A FREQUENT PATIENT IN THE ER. I WAS A "TOM BOY" WHO ENDED UP FLYIN...

IF YOU THOUGHT THE ART OF THE BARTER SYSTEM IS LONG GONE, I'M HERE TO SAY "NO IT IS NOT!" WHEN OUR 3 BOY'S WERE GETTING READY TO APPLY TO COLLEGE, IT WAS THE FIRST YEAR THE COMMON APP WENT DIGITAL. I PICTURED OUR TOMMY SPENDING WEEKS ON THIS APP AND ME HITTING THE DELETE BUTTOM BY MISTAKE. ROSEMARY FOX WALKED RIGHT INTO OUR HOME AND GUIDED TOMMY STEP BY STEP THROUGH  THE WHOLE PROCESS. I WOULD SAY, "ADD THIS SERVICE TO YOUR RESU...
