Happy New Year Margaret B ~ I love to visit you, and this little inspiration you created is just one of those reasons. You have been given a GIFT from God, and yours INSPIRES all of us to think deeply, and your creations always touch my inner soul and heart each time I lay eyes upon them. :) Love the melody you are playing today with this. My precious mother of 78 yrs had a stroke this past Tuesday; my thoughts have been many, and my thanks to God on her outcome for recovery is huge. Visiting you today put something special in my pocket of wishes for my Mom this year. She has a challenging year ahead, but she's a fighter...and your creation has inspired me to use my own gift more this year. I often say that my dream is to paint a portrait, but my pen in hand is really my paint brush...and my paper the, one of these days, I will write a special gift of words just for you. :) Your friend, ~CC Catherine
