A gift for graduationBy
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. ~Henri Nouwen
Today I share with you words from Nicole – she approached me a few weeks back via email and asked if I could possibly morph two separate photo’s into one drawing? Nicole’s story has been told to many people I am close with, my heart was warmed by her passion to make a friend smile and bring a special moment to her friends graduation.
Below are Nicole’s own words of why she did this….
The quote above is a perfect example the relationship with my friend. My friends mother past away last August after she battled three different types of cancers. My friend and her mother were very close more like best friends. She past 2 weeks before her senior year of high school and she wouldn’t get to see her graduate.
That’s way I decided to have this sketch done of her and her mother together as her graduation gift. It shows that they will always be together at heart and will see each other again..
