"being true of yourself"
oh I love that simple brilliance,
such deep sweet water wisdom:)
thank you for giving her a place
in your art
...her voice grew wings
because of you
and now we all get to hear the song!
i love that about you,

It is so amazing at what comes out of young hearts, not jaded, defeated, or constrained by the living of life yet!

Here's to fresh eyes and heart!

It's wonderful what children come up with, how they say it as they see it. When I'm not painting I work in care and get lots of honest opinions! Your drawing sits beautifully with the conversation x

It takes a child to make us stop and remind us of what is important. Wonderful! Oh, Rachel, there is so much goodness coming from you. You have been busy! Wishing you a year of blessings and delight!
