For better or worse, our early years have a great impact on how we live our lives out as adults. For some, the road is rocky and hard while for others, it is filled with adventure and a thirst for knowledge. Both of my parents encouraged my creative side and I am forever indebted to them. We carry our memories with us, treasuring those hands which held us with so much love and encouraged us to make things and to appreciate beauty.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you!
