I can't let today go by without mentioning that it is CJ's birthday today. The above picture is one of my favorite pictures of CJ and was taken when she was somewhere between 15 and 17 years of age. At the time she had an art teacher who inspired her to get into pottery and so her dad made her this potters wheel that she is using. The picture was taken at an art fair in downtown Boyne City. So you can she that her creativity goes back along way.
She has a love of the creative and encouraging creativity in others including me. This past summer one of her friends that has known her since they were girls together said that she had never known a more authentic genuine person. These are qualities that I am blessed to live with. So Happy Birthday CJ and thank you for sharing your life with me.
