A Treasured Award and..A Picture of Me...


Last week Jenn gave me an award..it's been too busy around here to give it the time it deserved. I have known her for a bit now about a year. To be honest when I first knew her I thought she was older than I - by a few good years. Turns out - well she's younger and I'm guessing a wise older soul. She is gentle spirited and has an interesting light about her, not only that brilliant light, hers is also gentle and inviting. Jenn is that candle in the window on a dark night. She has been a huge supporter of my artwork and I am blessed to call her a friend. I was deeply touched that she has chosen me to receive this award. Thank you Jenn! I am honored that you think of me this way!!!

You can never extinguish the Light that Shines Brightly within all of us. If there is Hope, there is Light, if there is a Dream, that same Light will lead the way, and this Award I created this evening reflects that Creative Spark, that Light we all hold within us, but there are certain people who come to mind that Shine So Brightly that you can't help notice the Warmth that illuminates in all they do, and in what they represent and just who they are:

All you have to do is pass it along to those whose Light Shines even within the Darkest Night~
Lisa Because she is a clear light to all those around her.
Holly Because she illuminates everyone around her.

Hanna & I were messing around with my camera. She insisted on taking some pics of me. Well...to be honest..I hate pictures of myself. I have a few more pounds on me than I would prefer and I just do not photograph well. Seriously I don't. I have been asked to post a pic of myself and have hesitated until today. Hanna got a few very nice shots. So...here is a pic of me that I was kinda happy with......

Sarah, even before I saw a picture of you I have thought of you as beautiful! You are one of the sweetest kindest people I know. I don't know why you wouldn't want your picture taken, you have a lovely face and it reflects the beauty with. Tell Hannah I think she did a good job on the picture.

Oh my God Sarah you are gorgeous. Wow.

You need to look in a mirror a whole lot more often. You are stunning.

When you describe yourself, that is not what I would have expected you to look like.

Sarah you are gorgeous.

Great picture and you have beautiful eyes.
