How did I come to illustrating and journaling? When my daughter’s son was about 5, she had written a story for him. She asked me one day if I would illustrate it. “I can’t do that. I don’t have the skill!” was my reply. She had responded “Yes you can!” With great misgivings I did it! She was the one that pushed me to do what I believed was unthinkable. We all need someone like that!
