She would have been 48 today

My cousin Cecil would have been 48 today (June 28). She died four days before Christmas Day in 2015. Her family visited her at the cemetery where they offered flowers and prayers to commemorate her birthday on earth. I remember her as a tough cookie. She doesn’t easily give in to life’s challenges especially when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. She remained positive even up to her last few weeks. I did not hear anything negative from her. If she were alive today, she could be the one helping some family members who are in dire straits. She was a year older than me but I admit she’s more mature when it comes to decision making. I miss you Cez. Happy birthday wherever you are. :'(

A children’s book project

The image is not related to the post. This is my daughter’s work when she was in high school.

I think the older of two kids is beginning to realize her childhood dream to write and illustrate a children’s book. They have this project in school that requires student to submit an originally written and illustration of a children’s book. Daughter came up with this cute story about a young witch and her sidekick feline friend. It was well-illustrated with elation lighting that the professor gave it a 100 percent rating. I wish N would allow me to share the entirety of the book here.
