Happiness and Sadness within Four Hours
After a lifetime of creating art and picture books, I received an offer of representation from Steven Chudney! It was one of the happiest moments of my life. My husband brought out a bottle of champagne to celebrate and we made a toast.
Four hours later, my daughter called with heartbreaking news. Life had taken a spin and she had to face a health crisis with a two year old and new baby. My heat breaks for her young family. Never before have I had such an extreme range of emotions.
I remind myself that we all have our battles. We must put one foot in front of the other and take the joys with the sorrows. As a family, we will survive. My picture books are my escape and a way for me to celebrate the joys in life with others. I hope it brings a little happiness to a tired mom, dad, and the biggest gift in life, a child.
