A couple years ago I was having a really bad day. My artwork wasn't coming along the way I thought it should, the kids were both sick, John was away on business...blah, blah, blah. So, yes indeed I was having a pity party for myself. In the midst of it all one of my girlfriends called and listened, very compassionately, to the "poor me" saga.
A few days later this little guy arrived in the mail with the card that said "look for the blessings and don't take life too seriously". He now sits on the windowsill in my studio to remind me of just that. As the Indigo Girls say in their song, "it's only life afterall".
