Nine hearts.



I made this series one night last week. They're just simple colored pencil sketches on black foam core. I began mailing them to my niece, one a day, with little notes attached to the back.

I used to mail things to my friends and family all the time, before email made it so easy to get in touch in a split second. But I think a little note or gift in the mail is a treat, and I should do it more often. I love to get mail that does not consist of junk and bills, but it's rare these days.

For those who are thinking of and praying for Avery, she's still having some issues with clotting in her lungs. Please continue to send your prayers her way. Thank you

These are fantastic Kerri! I'm sure Avery loves them with your notes attached. It's so true, in the days, now, of electronics, it's so refreshing and warm to get a mailed note or treat! Prayers never stop for Avery; she is our super girl! xxoo

What a wonderful Auntie you are Kerri. I'm sure Avery will never forget you in her life. You certainly know how to make anyone feel special. I'm sure she feels that and we carry those memories always. Prayers always.

I remember Avery in my prayers daily. This must be such a strain for you all. Keep on brightening lives with glorious hearts, Kerri. Seeing all 9 hearts together has brightened mine.

How lovely your hearts for Avery are and indeed how very special to receive real mail with such a wonderful surprise. I keep Avery and you in my thoughts and prayers each and every day. As much as we like snail mail I am thankful for this electronic world we have as I have been so fortunate to get to know you and consider you a friend and inspiration. Smiles ;o) and hugs ((((())))).

Hi Kerri, someday your niece will put all your artwork together and decorate her room with it. Who knows maybe she will follow in your art footsteps, one heart at a time! c.
