A Good Artist

Last night we had dinner with my cousin to celebrate both of our birthdays in the month of January.  She surprised me by handing me a card and within the card was a small envelope which had a beaded bracelet in it that she had made.  It was such a sweet and unexpected gesture.

Isn't it just the prettiest?  And with the vintage details on the toggle? 

Later that evening when we were home and watching "something", I don't even remember what, on television, I heard someone say "A good artist soothes the spirit".  That was exactly what I had felt with the gift from my cousin.  She may not have realized what I was feeling at the time but she, as the artist, soothed my spirit.   And I thank her for that.
