    To everyone who helped make my mother's birthday something special with your sunflower art...

    THANK YOU!!!

    Oh my gosh, y'all more than made her day! Let me set this up for you:

    It came at the perfect time - she told me later that she was feeling down that morning, missing her old home and her old friends. She said she'd cried a bit that morning, but brightened up when I came bearing gifts.

    I let her open the things from me, and then I gave her a pretty bag with pretty paper, and told her to pull each thing out one at a time. She had no clue what to expect, and was confused to pull out an opened envelope. She read the card - she didn't know who the person was. Then she saw the ATC, and gasped. She was confused. Did I make this? I told her no. She pulled out another thing. It was a 5x7 painting with a note. She didn't know who this person was, but it dawned on her...were these from people with that art group I was with. Yes, mom. They were gifts from them to you.

    Oh my gosh, the tears began flowing then! As she kept pulling out beautiful works of art, she would gasp and cry happy tears, saying "But they don't even KNOW me!"


    I don't know how to express my very deep gratitude to each of you - you truly made her day. Sure enough, we have to go get things to help her display everything. She really lit up, and I thank you all for that! (And as a side note, the other ladies and gents at the community center absolutely LOVED seeing everything you made! I am pretty sure one or two was a little bit envious of mom's special gifts!)

    You all are a special, wonderful group of folks. Thank you for being you!
