Challenges--Personal and Creative

This week the Diva poses another "string theory" challenge.  The string is in the shape of the logo of the Moebius Syndrome Foundation.  The Diva's dear son "Artoo" has this syndrome, and their lives have certainly had a variety of challenges.  The Moebius Syndrome Foundation defines the disorder as:
Moebius syndrome is a rare neurological disorder that is present at birth. It primarily affects the 6th and 7th cranial nerves, leaving those with the condition unable to move their faces (they can’t smile, frown, suck, grimace or blink their eyes) and unable to move their eyes laterally.
Laura, aka the Diva, chose this string for the challenge because Moebius Syndrome Awareness day is January 24.

In honor of Moebius Syndrome Awareness day and "Artoo," here is my Diva challenge piece:

Laura has opened her heart and life to tanglers around the world.  During her weekly challenges, Laura shares stories about her family, their travels, their happy times, and their trying times.  It is saddening to read when "Artoo" is sick or hospitalized again, but I'm glad that Laura and her family have a lot of wonderful support.

Challenges.

Sometimes we challenge ourselves to try something new, and sometimes life throws challenges at us.
