How Does One Say Thank You?


I have received many cards and emails regarding my Ellie and I tear up with each one.  You have no idea how much they mean to me.  Dear Saundra sent a generous donation that is being given to Multiple Breed Rescue, the rescue where my friend Judy adopted her from.  If you don't know how Ellie came to be mine, you can read about it here.  This also came in the mail and I must say I sobbed when I opened it.  Kim had a friend of hers do a watercolor of Ellie.  He truly captured her spirit.  It takes my breath away and it is something I will treasure always.  Thank you so much, dear Kim.  It will hang in my bedroom because Ellie spent every night there (under the covers) with me.  The artist is Ben Pitman and you can find him here on Etsy.


Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Hugs :)
Lauren

What a beautiful watercolor! Animals touch our souls in a very special way. Sometimes, they know us better than "real" people.

What a sweet painting of your dear Ellie!! Friends are the best!!

Saundra said...

Amazing how Mr. Pitman captured Ellie's likeness and spirit even tho he didn't know her. I guess Kim did a great job telling him all about Ellie and you and the emotion was transported to his hands. His other paintings on etsy are also wonderful.

Blogger friends are the bestest!
