I am so wonderfully blessed and thankful to have her as my mama and for raising me. And keeping an eye on me. And for occasionally pulling out the flyswatter to spank me when I got out of line. Or at least to hold it up and threaten to use it on me. And for making me homemade chocolate peanut butter cups. And teaching me my first drawing lessons and encouraging me my whole life in my art and pursuits. And for being a wonderful Granny to my kiddos. And for taking care of my Daddy all these years. And... well... for everything.
