    As usual, you manage to convey a remarkable amount with such simple drawings. I'm not sure I've ever caught something from you which conveyed as much as this does, though.

  8. Oh, boy! This was so sweet and poignant. And I'm glad you didn't draw mom with tears in her eyes when her "heart" leaves.

    Beautiful!

  17. Everytime I go into this website I read this. You have no idea how amazing it is. I'm only eighteen now, so I haven't fled the coop yet, but, ah! I love my mom, and this reminds me just how much I love her. I can't imagine not having her in my life. Thank you for creating such beautiful work.

    Honestly, thank you!

    1. You are so welcome Danny, and thank-YOU for taking the time to write me this lovely note. The bond between a mother and child is so tender. It's deeply meaningful to hear the perspective of the child (you), in these comments.
