Today a group of friends in the neighbourhood, who have been
friends since our children were in kindergarten, got together
rapid tested to share some goodies and celebrate the holidays.
I was moved when I was getting ready to leave my friend Marty's
house to see the portrait I did of her mother sitting above the mantle
among the cards, and decorations. But it was still early morning
for me, and I hadn't had quite enough coffee to notice the tiny
Santa hat sitting on Marty's Mom's portrait's head.
Sadly Marty's Mom, a wonderful woman is no longer with us.
But it's clear that her family feels her presence in her
portrait, and that made me happy.
Have a loving your life day.
