The next surprise was from my youngest son. Him and his fiancee currently live in Alexandria Virginia, which means that they will not be here to celebrate my birthday with me next week. Also because they are leaving for a week in Tokyo on that day... Must be rough. Anyhow, they sent my gift early which I had to open when I received. I am terrible about waiting... Did I say I love surprises.
I was totally knocked over when I opened the package and found the painting by Dorothy Kadosh. It was simply beautiful. The painting is done in a somewhat 3-d sense with the tree wrapping around the canvas. It is simply beautiful. Some of you may be familiar with Dororthy as she is an artist from Pennsylvania yet even more she is known for her work as an Astrologer and her work in Metaphysics. She is currently director of the School of Psychic Self Defense .
Also in the package from my son was his usual quirky card which only him and I would laugh at and a small (actually tiny) chinese food container. Inside it were 2 tiny oragami turtles, a fortune cookie and a pair of beautiful purple and silver earrings. Needless to say I was pleasently surprised today. A lovely way to start off the week before my birthday. Kids, you just have to love them.
