There are some things that happen that make you think...I never in a thousand years would have predicted I would end up here...or that I would be doing this...or that I would think this...
This morning, I was taking "the girls" for our usual walk down the driveway for the paper. On our return, Mulligan was running along the edge of the woods and startled a hawk from the trees. It "exploded" out of the trees and soared upward, giving a loud scream. It screeched again two more times and settled somewhere further into the woods. I was in awe. There had been a perfect stillness to the morning before this. I am absolutely awe struck when I hear the scream of a hawk. I don't know how to explain it, other than I feel it's such a priviledge to hear, and I'm so lucky to experience it. And then I think...I never would have thought that a city girl like me would end up here...and loving it.
The other day, I was asked to sketch two initials in a heart shape. This was my first attempt:Then I was asked to fancy it up and add some "doo dads", and make it black and grey, so here is where I ended up:And you know what this is going to be?
A tattoo! A permanent fixture on someone's body...the initials of 2 children. And I think again...never in a thousand years would I have thought I would be doing this...that I would be creating tattoo art for someone!
You just never know what life has in store.
