I have no words, to express my thanks to my dear friend, Aamir!

Aamir, Thank You So Much for this beautiful heartfelt birthday gift!! :heart:
This is a little birthday gift for my beloved friend Bev... :iconartbybeverly:

Happy Birthday to my very best friend.
Your special day has come by again.

Within you, I've found the perfect friend
Someone who I know will be there till the end
And they're not just thoughts I hope will fulfill
But thoughts that will stand forever still

Still as the wind on a hot summer's day
Still as your friendship I'll never betray
Still as the characters in a photograph
Still as your breathless, silent laugh

Within you, I've found the perfect friend
A mind that I can comprehend
A person I see is so much like me
A mutual relationship so carefree

Carefree as a child who questions the world
Carefree as a scream that goes unheard
Carefree as an adult blessed with a dream
Carefree as water flowing downstream

Within you, I've found the perfect friend
With whom I can be real, and never pretend
You've always been someone unique from the rest
You hold a piece of me no other can possess

Within you is reason to live every moment in time
Within you the life I want is always mine
Within you, I have the perfect friend
With you, I see myself till the very end

Well my dear I wish you Happy Birthday once more,
An abundance of good wishes for you are in store.
A new year filled with lots of happiness and laughter,
And only the very best for you from here on after.

From :iconhiaamir: :heart:
Happy Birthdhay dear Bev by hiaamir

Special gifts of well wishes! Thank you so much!

Honey Bee by bluedragoneyeBeverly's Rain and Flowers by KiwiCutiePieA Beverly Sunrise by bluedragoneye When Beverly Weeps
When Beverly Weeps
When Beverly weeps the angels cry
And it rains for 40 days and nights
When Beverly weeps roses do too
Puppy whine and kittens mew
When Beverly weeps rivers run full
Mountains tremble shaking off their snow
When Beverly weeps birds forget the words to their songs
Frogs no longer croak and dogs abandon their bones
When Beverly weeps the moon wants to die
Then the sun refuses to shine
When Beverly weeps it’s because she is sad
That’s when we all try our hardest to make her once more glad
Rose Bud by bluedragoneyeWhen You Need A Wish by bluedragoneye Smile For Me Beverly
Smile For Me Beverly
Blonde hair sad eyes
Please, Please Beverly don’t cry
Changes taking place making you feel like a little girl and you no longer have a chance
Life kicking you when all you want to do is dance
Things are going way, way too fast
But hold on to me and Vin lovely for it won’t last
Look up at the skies at night and see stars
Look up at the sky at first light because pass the sun there sits Mars
Look into a mirror past the smudges and cracks
There you will see an angel smiling back
So smile Beverly for your smile is the sun
Smile for me Beverly and we’ll hold hands and run
((Ps Mind you I will more then likely trip))
Cry In The Wind by bluedragoneye A Simple PrayerA Simple Prayer
Oh how we fear the unknown
Fear the one who, will one day call us home
But all I can tell you, is that you’re not alone
So hold her hand until she is gone
Then slowly peek up at the skies and weep
Sorrow fills your soul
For you are not ready yet to let go
But it’s only because you don’t know
Beyond this world you can see now
But you must let go and believe
She will always be with you though you cannot see
But her soul is not through just yet
She is still here with you all that you can bet
So laugh, love and play
Make the most of each and every day
But if the time comes and she hears that call
Just know she will still be with you all


For Beverly by Applemac12:iconapplemac12:

What are Smiles?What are Smiles?
Smiles are sunshine, a kitten’s purr, a puppy’s yawn and roses just kiss by a spring time rain upon our lawns
Smiles are the taste of pink and blue cotton candy on a paper stick, that later becomes a sword that we banish evil with
Smiles are giggles with wings, going to visit faraway lands, while holding hands with the man of our dreams
Smiles are bright colorful kites with long untangled strings and bubble gum machine plastic rings
Smiles are deck out hot rods with painted on flames and racing stripes, wanted by every guy
Smiles are the loved ones we bring into this world and share our lives knowledge with as we watch them grow and fall, but get back up again
Smiles are friends who drift in and out of our lives, like waves upon a beach, sometimes touching sometimes just out of reach
Smiles are sometime rolls of teeth white shiny teeth frame by pink lips or sometimes they are toothless gums surrounded by wrinkles as age had come
Smiles are dances that leap

Stay tuned for more of my heartfelt thank you features, to everyone that was so kind and thoughtful to send me your wonderful gifts!

I've decided in order to include everyone in a timely manner, I will be doing two or three features in one large feature!  Thanks for understanding! :heart:

Some good news...I just wanted to tell everyone that sent their well wishes, left messages of care and concern, and notes plus emails...

That, all the procedures that I have had done lately, have all come back fantastic, with no signs of disease, or cancer or anything else...except for that nasty infection and ulcer in my tummy that I have been so good to have taken my medications all 7 days for it, to get rid of it!! The ulcer will be kept at bay with ongoing medication to help that.  I'm really happy about it...although I'm still waiting on some blood test results to see why my body isn't absorbing iron, and to see if my platelet counts are down, and how my liver function is doing...but overall doing fine!

I hope everyone is having a great week, and I'll talk to you all soon at some point or other :)

Here are some new faves I'd like to share...

Now that I have your attention :D...Please bear with me!!

:heart: I have so many heartfelt thank-you's to come, and want to make each of them just as special as what was gifted to me, that I would like to ask you for your patience in the next few weeks, since I am still having some tests done and results to follow up with! :heart: 

Anyway, I don't think I have any more places that another human being has left to discover than what has already been discovered! :blush: :giggle:  To be honest though I never thought I would ever have a colonoscopy done in my whole life, it's just something (being a modest mouse) that I never even considered, EVER...

BUTT (pardon the pun) :giggle:

I did have one done the day before my birthday :nod: and a gastroscopy too, (where they stick a camera down into your gut and look for ulcers etc)...and yes okay, I was nervous about the procedures, but I also did a little bit of homework on very reliable online resources and forums that discussed the prep, and the procedures. (see below)  I also talked about it to my dearest friend's (you know who you are) plus my husband and it put me right at ease about what to expect, etc.

Here are some links.... 

USA -…


Youtube - Having A Colonoscopy - LynnsBowelCancerCamp

These are just a few resources that are available :)

Put aside your modesty, embarrassment and reservations...If I can do it, so can you and your life may depend on it, to find out problems that could arise, or already have arisen but can be fixed before they get any worse!

The unpleasant part of the procedure isn't even the procedure itself!  It's the preparation before have to drink some stuff that tastes like lemonade, but salty....okay we can all deal with that and it's really not too bad at all...and that helps clean your bowels out before the procedure! :nod:  Just think of it like "Liquid Drain" that cleans a blocked drain pipe :giggle: so you have to stay near the bathroom :shrug: no big deal, take your laptop, iPad, music...whatever, but have plenty of baby wipes handy, the flushable kind of course :giggle:

The procedure itself is a get some sedation to help you relax, and have a little cat nap if you want get to wear cute little socks, gown and a nice warm terry cloth dressing gown :nod: :D ~ Now the doctor has seen so many assholes in his life, what is one more right?  Oh now come on, you've got to see the humour in it!! LOL okay well I thought that was pretty funny :P :D...Butt (oh geez, there I go again), seriously though he has seen them in all shapes and sizes and his main concern is to make sure you are comfortable, relaxed and A-okay!!  It only takes about 15 minutes, and you're being wheeled back into the recovery room to get something to eat and drink...yes a free meal!! You even get the results that day, no waiting or stressing!!

So my dear dear friends, it really is something we should all do and I tell you all of this because I adore you so much and want you to be healthy for yourself, your husband/wife and kids because after all, you want to see them grow old too, don't ya!

:heart: To all my amazing and incredibly talented, wonderful friends! :heart:

ArtBYbeverly's Profile Picture
Beverly Jean Reid
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
New Zealand

:iconcuteflowerplz:I was born in California, and now live in New Zealand, and enjoy beautiful scenery and lovely changeable weather! I enjoy music, art, photography, cooking, astronomy, exploring new lands/places, taking walks along the beach at sunset, and almost anything else! I'm married with a son, and I have great compassion for all living things!

Let me tell you what is my saving grace, my sanctuary and the place I visit when I want to retreat from the darkness of a past gone by, when I want to daydream and where I want to art!

Sketching was always my first love of art, and the first things I remember sketching were challenging enough for a six year old never mind at my age now, but I tried and tried, and with determination and perseverance I got it to look half decent! When I got bored with sketching, because it had no colour, I moved on to Acrylics and I tried water-colour and oils...but since 2010, I happened to be at home recovering from a work injury and had a set of pastel pencils and coloured pencils and I was hooked!! Moral of this story...DON'T EVER GIVE UP, its true they say "If at first you don't succeed, try try again! My journey along arts pathway has been a labor of love, because it hasn't been easy, quite difficult most of the time because I love detailed work...challenging at best, but it has taught me a few things about myself...who I am, what my strengths are, and how much determination I really have!

Just keep in mind when you are viewing other's works of art, that you too were once a beginner, and had humble beginnings! Art is ever evolving, and so personal to the it forward and aspire to inspire others and please be kind when commenting!
