A few months ago, I happened to come across Rebecca Caridad on Instagram. She draws beautiful one-line portraits. I commissioned one for John for Valentine's Day. This picture was taken just a few days after he was diagnosed with leukemia and hospitalized to start chemo. At home there were piles of unopened wedding presents stacked all over. We were reeling from shock, which is very clear on our faces. I asked the kiddos to please indulge me and hold hands & smile for this pic because I wanted them to know we were in this together.
I'm surprising John with the portrait tonight. My heart is full of gratitude. ❤
