I have created a little something I’d like to share with all of you during this time of quarantine. I started this project two years ago, and it took the covid shut down to grant me enough space to complete it, finally. This is dedicated to two very special people I knew for a long time, and lost them both to cancer. They made loving impacts all around them, and one impact was on my daughters one day when we went to visit them.
My children were 5 and 7 when they first met Helen and Richard, and that was not ignored, in fact that was the focal point. Everything we did that day fed my girls’ young minds and spirits. They LOVED every minute of it. What struck me as most touching was the hand sketched wildflower scavenger hunt, created especially for them. They have never forgotten that scavenger hunt, and to this day they talk about it with smiles and fond memories. That one visit reached deep into their little souls, because it was full of love and kindness. That is all I remember of Helen and Rich; their kindness and laughter. So, with no further ado, here is a present for all of you, created with love, and inspired by that day and two brilliant people I will always hold close to my heart.
I know not all of you are in Colorado, but you many have some of these varieties where you are, and maybe you’ll one day visit Colorado, and if you do, bring this along! Get outside and get your Vitamin N!
