This year he ordered the girls their own so mom didn't even need to share. Then He delivered some to Pooker who is having a tough week of exams. Goobers grabbed this shot of Dad's 6 girls eating their chocolates together.
I love the gift so very much. He found a Bro. Matthew for me. That would be the art work of a now deceased hermit artist. This man was known locally in the foothills of rural Missouri for his simple artwork that was painted on pieces of wood from old barns. Visit here to learn more about the art and the artist.
My aunt, cousin, and mom all own some beautiful pieces that are very moving and I learned yesterday now very very very expensive. Bro. Matthew's nature scenes don't command the same price. Now I own one. I am so excited and proud of it.
I was shocked to learn that J has been trying to buy one for years. Bro. Matthew would paint one piece for one of the highschool auctions in St. Louis each year. My aunt had a friend that knew him so she was a contact person, or at least this is how I remember it. He was a hermit and you never knew if he would paint for you or not. My aunt valued her painting and over the years picked one up for my mom and her daughter. I always wanted one.
We came home full and ready for a show. The kids treated us to their own after dinner theater. I love it. I must tell you that I went to sleep last night feeling so very blessed.
