I have a great kid
and she married a really great kid too
she reads my blogs and follows along with the "trials and tribulations" as well as the artistic endeavors
last week she saw my post about the medical bills and the tight budget and that my little piece in the budget for art supplies would be cut yet again
when I got home yesterday from our trip to the fair, there was an envelope in the mail
pretty card (Sunflowers by Monet, which is a whole special connection of it's own) with a note from my daughter and her husband and a gift card to our local craft store
when I called her and asked what the occassion was, she said she can't magically make the medical bills go away, but she can help keep me from being so depressed by keeping me in art supplies (she knows how far I can stretch this card by using coupons and shopping sales) --- her husband says a lot of the art work ends up at their house, so they should help "support my habit"
like I said --- I have great kids
