...I received one gift for Christmas...ONE.
...It was a box filled with hope,
filled with a promise of another clean unused day.
...I received memories of what I went through this past year and received the opportunity to say “thank you” that I am still alive to live another day.
...I received prayers packed in my box, prayers from friends of healing and encouragement to keep going and survive.
...I unpacked love from my friends; I don’t know how it all fit in there!
...I received ‘reminders’ to fill the box in the new coming year with goodness and gratefulness and beauty.
...I will never put my gift away; I will use it every day…..
...This is the best gift I have ever received and I hope yours were just as good!©Sheila Wolk
I was named Sport Artist of the Year in 1987. American Sport Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA) gave this auspicious award to my soft-edged pastel paintings of the hard action sports .
