In Honour of Mothers...

I have to say...until becoming a Mom myself, I never really understood all that a Mother is. And I say THANK YOU!

Thanks MOM... For being my friend, for providing a HOME.

For all the LOVE that you give... not only to me but to others... children, family, animals, friends and those less fortunate.

For staying up late and waiting in line.
For always attending recitals, rehearsals and plays.
For putting me ahead of yourself.
For picking me up and for taking me HOME.

For letting me grow... make my own mistakes and loving me even more when I do.

THANK YOU MOM...for your support, LOVE and respect.

Mommies deserve to be honored today...they make the world a better place!

Making A Wish Come True for Alan

I got a phone call on Wednesday afternoon from Dr. Matt Bitsko with ASK (Assistance Support Kindness). ASK is a non profit organization that provides financial, spiritual, social and emotional support for children with cancer and their families. Matt told me about Alan Hill who is the recipient of a room makeover from Make A Wish Foundation.

Alan's mother Laurie wanted Alan to have some special designs painted in his room. Alan aspires to become an entomologist (a branch of zoology that deals with insects) and loves bugs, all types, kinds, sizes and shapes.

So, on Saturday morning, I made my way to Alan's home. Alan is a wonderful 16 (soon to be 17) year old. He is smart and kind, and Alan has a pure zest for life.
Alan has been diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor and has been in a tough battle with this relentless disease since 2005. Alan forges on. He does not feel sad or sorry for himself. He LOVES life!
So, after speaking with Alan and his Mom, we decided on several different bugs.
And a special request from Alan's Mom; "Can you paint Wayne Alan Hill, Jr. P.H.D., Entomologist on the wall?" Well of course. I painted each dragonfly, butterfly and beetle in its place.
It was such an honor to meet Alan and his family. It was such pleasure to be able to paint in Alan's room and to know how much he appreciated it. In fact, he told me so.
On Saturday, I learned something I've always known... A mother's love is GREATER than any love there is!
Happy Birthday Alan! Prayers and blessings are being sent your way!
