Hi Kathy! Just want to let you know that I have your “gorgeous” painting sitting by me and I love, love it! God has indeed put the gift of seeing the world and then putting it to canvas so that so many of us out here can see the world through your eyes. Whew! That was a long sentence. Anyway, so excited here and can’t wait to see more of what you do. Also, can’t wait for my #2 son to get home from school so that I can show it to him. My 2 boys will surely square away at what paintings they will want and I’m sure yours will be on the “friendly” arm hold table. Thank you for the books. I would love to leave one to each son, and I’m thinking that you would be ok with that. Thank you, thank you for being so kind. This is a tough battle being fought here with this cancer, but I can assure you that God has put some very awesome people into my life and you are one of them. Happy Mother’s Day to you and may God continue to bless others through you. And, may He bless your family as I know He will. Take care, my friend, and “Aloha” from New England. (For some reason that doesn’t quite sound right, but God bless you no matter what.) warm regards.
