Letter "S" for Sonia

Happy Birthday to one of my soul sista's, Sonia!  I had the pleasure of working with Sonia for years and we became really good friends.  Our birthdays are 5 days apart (same year) and last year we were both fortunate to be able to retire from our long careers with the federal government.  We retired within weeks of each other and had a combined farewell party.  A couple of months ago, Sonia and her husband moved to the Texas coast and bought a home on a canal, so she is living the good life.  I can't think of anyone who deserves it more.  Sonia had diabetes since she was a child and was the recipient of a kidney and pancreas transplant some years back.  She continues to do well!  What a treat  to be able to see her enjoy sweets for the 1st time in her life!  We are looking forward to the day we can go visit them and do some fishing.  Happy birthday, Sonia!  All the best to you! 


  1. That is so beautiful. Do you mind if I share it with my kids camp this summer? One of the things we will be doing is initials. Hmm. Maybe this would be too intimidating...

  2. A lovely tribute to a good friend. And beautiful art!

  3. Beautiful! To me the "S" looked like Milanese bobbin lace!
