The GENERAL EDITION COMFORT SET includes cards with the following messages:
I can tell you entrusted me with something important and I want you to know it is safe and I care about you.
Some things can never be fixed or changed. But it's the highs and lows through life that have made you the beautiful person you are today.
Some things can never be fixed or changed. But it's the highs and lows through life that have made you the strong person you are today.
The depth of a loss we feel can also be a sign of how blessed we have been.
Thank you for sharing your story with me. It has really touched my heart.
“There is a sacredness in tears....They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.”
This is a free pass to cry on my shoulder. No attempt to fix things, just a pair of listening ears. Play this card any time you need to.
The magnificence of a person's life can no more be expressed in words than can the beauty of a flower be captured by brush and paint. But we are blessed when we try.
I'm so sorry. Sounds like things are really tough at the moment. Wishing you better days ahead.
May you be blessed with warmth and kindness from unexpected places.
As I watch our world, I have become more and more passionate about how desperately we need to look upon one another in love. But how can we do that when our own hearts are in turmoil?
Each of us, no matter our differences, yearn to experience more joy, peace, and love. Those are common human needs and I believe these longings have been placed in our hearts by The Creator and are met by The Creator in many ways, art being one of them!
My art is infused with meaning as I express these most basic heart needs. My greatest hope today is that as you explore my website, my art and the stories behind it, will touch you personally.
And in turn, as you experience this through my art, I hope you will be able to turn and touch another’s heart who is in need of joy, peace and love.
