Moving beyond my pain and celebrating life.

Look what I found.....




Today when I was rummaging through an old box of pictures, I came across these three pages. My niece Megan is now 22 years old and I am not sure how old she was when she drew them. I think she was about 5. Maybe Ms. Creek will be able to tell.
I love you Megan; you are a woman now!
Love,
Aunt Jo Jo

    Ms. Creek: I'm not sure what I will do with the originals, I wish I had put a date on them!

    San: Yes, I too cherish the pictures my children drew when they were young, I have a whole trunk full of their stuff.

    I answered the Dante's Inferno test as honestly as possible; I have no secret to rating Purgatory. The questions were interesting and I found it to be distrubing in that "organized religion" is judgmental and puts a person's values in a box.

    I like your take on "organized" religion--putting people's values in a box. That's actually my difficulty with questionnaires in general--they leave out the rest of the story, the bigger part.

    I keep artwork that my kids did when they were little. MY work briefcase used to be full of it!

    I love the name of your blog, because it sums up my own attitude to life.

    PS: Came here from San's site.
