Why am I telling you this story?
Well...I felt compelled to dedicate my 2nd page in my new art journal to Grandma King along with the message she comforted me with. I drew a picture of me when I was in 3rd grade on a text page from a book and painted it with watercolors (one of my 1st attempts at this). I believe Grandma King planted this message deep within me, although I wasn't aware, which has sustained me thru challenging times.
The message is true for us all no matter what age.
You are special, just the way you are.
P.S. Here is the 1st page in my new Art Journal, I see I never posted it on my blog. I created it yesterday. The writing on the art is the premise of the journal. It is my intention to display all posts from this journal as a means to aid in me expressing myself.
