A Good Day



Mae Harkins was loved by many. She fought a battle with cancer. She ran the race and was welcomed into her eternal home in 2019. Mae was born on April 28, 1951. She graduated from Plainview High School in 1970. I did not know Mae well and not until much later in our lives, but we had an instant connection once we did meet. I'm pretty sure it was the same for all who knew Mae. 

A few months ago, Mae's daughter-in-law, Leslie, gifted me with a box full of bottle caps. I knew that I wanted to create something from them, but at the time, they were put in the garage "create with one day" closet. Life gets busy, and then God opens a window of opportunity, even gives you the direction and guides your creativity; of course, he does. So, this week I spent some "studio" time creating.
