My illustration is a little personal this week. When the word was influence I immediately thought of our little pooch Tuvoc, who sadly isn't with us anymore, but as such a huge part of all of our lives there is not a day that goes past where we don't mention her, or tell a funny story, or shed a quiet tear, or think of her in some way. She was truly an important part of our family.
Live life everyday, love the people who love you and show them how much you care, with carefree abandon! Never hold back. love the sun on your back and the wind in your face and most of all, never grow old, enjoy every minute as if you were young enough to roll on the grass, chase butterflies, run like the wind, dig holes in the sand, and jump into any close body of water when you know you really shouldn't, all just because it feels so good!
She got the nickname "little pig" when my brother was telling us he had heard the only animal that can't be successfully put in a harness is a pig because of their rotund body shape - of course this was while we were trying to her harness on for a walk one day and she kept backing out of it! Most unkind but the name stuck!
Having a great time ripping paper after one of our moves
