Jim said that cherry blossoms are not a favorite in Chinese painting because the petals droop downwards. This week my assignment is drawing azaleas. Jim painted a sample for me and the petals turn outwards and upwards. Through the image, I can envision a positive spring season.
The weather these two days have been gorgeous. God is especially nice to me. After having looked at some reading notes and portfolios for application to colleges, I feel my kids’ overwhelming progress. For some, it’s a long running marathon, and for others, it’s a good result brought about by little things I do. It doesn’t matter where the strong urge to reach for a goal originates because both of us profit from it. I do hope that this driving force will stay with us when we are no longer together.
