Rue hung Chinese Lanterns all over the front room.

She needed the color and the light to dispel the darkness that had dwelt there for far too long.

And you know what? It worked.

My inspiration for this piece came from a shop we passed by in St. Louis, Mo.

We had taken Elizabeth out for her birthday one year and saw this shop from the road. It had these lovely Chinese Lanterns hanging everywhere. And I thought how could anybody be sad surrounded with those everyday?

My thought for the day: You are unique, no one is like you. So please appreciate yourself. Celebrate you this week.
