    • Thank you, Davy. I’m glad that you like it. I had a poem chosen from my archives to use for today, but this one decided to be born instead. The poem came easier than the picture. There were so many good images found during the search. This one seemed to speak to me the most. She just looks so very sad.
      Thanks again. I hope that you have a blessed day, too.
