Beautiful Ben

A dear friend of mine mailed this to me while I was in the hospital. It came the day before we found out we had lost our baby. It had been a LONG hospital stay. Lots of time in a small, dark room. My sweet sister, Amy Jo, came to see me and brought this gift with her. It made me cry and lifted my spirits. It's such a beautiful picture of Benjamin. Thank you Leslie. I will treasure this always.

Someday I too will be the proud owner of a smart mama painting. Until then, I enjoy your two.
