A birthday wish from Lahoma...

Today I received a hand painted birthday card from Lahoma.... Do you remember Lahoma? If not, you can read about her here...part 1... and then here.. part 2.

Lahoma paints birthday and Christmas cards every year... for over 300 friends and family... and now I have been added to the list!

How sweet to be added to the group of people this wonderful octogenarian paints cards for each year. How sweet to have found such a lovely friend... in the twilight of her life... still enjoying painting and her family and friends...
Happy Birthday!

God Bless and Keep You

Love, Lahoma
Thank you Lahoma, for the best birthday wishes ever... from down here in French Lique... on my 55th birthday...
