the giving season...

This picture was painted by a friend of ours. We bought it about 2 years ago.
The painting was recreated and printed along with many other paintings to sell as a fundraiser in memory of their beautiful sweet daughter who left this earth much to soon. She fought hard but leukemia took her life when she was only 21 years old. She was a beautiful girl with amazing potential, she was bright and witty and kind and sweet. Her life ended much to soon. While here on earth she brought great joy to her family and friends. She made me laugh even in her darkest hour. I remember so many fun and funny times with her. Her spirit lives on in the hearts of her family and friends and we miss her everyday. It's a struggle for families every day who lose loved ones but I think it is especially hard during the holiday season. But I believe in this season there is hope - a hope that one day there will be a cure for this and many other diseases. While you are in the spirit of giving maybe you will take a small portion and give to a charity you believe in for the hope of a brighter tomorrow. i love you katie and i think of you often.
