Believe: 5 x 7 acrylic & mixed media on canvas board

Since her birth five years ago today,
my niece Avery has made us believe...

in miracles,
in love,
in the amazing generosity of friends,
in the amazing generosity of strangers,
in the strength of family,
in perseverence,
in the resilience of the human body,
in the powerful spirit of a little girl,
in what is important... and what is not.

Happy birthday Cutes!!
I believe in YOU!!

Good wishes to Avery on her very special day.....and God speed for many, many, many more.

Kerri, I guess I love the "blues" - this piece is another beauty.

Out of such worry and heartache came such beauty! Who would have thunk??? Life is amazing, isn't it?
