Once in a while someone comes into your life and does something so thoughtful it moves you to tears.
I had the honour of meeting Louise Thompson back in May when her daughter Shawna purchased a family pkg with me.
The family pkg was part of a fundraiser to help raise funds to support a wonderful colleague of mine adopting from Haiti.
During the shoot we talked a bit about my trip to Haiti in January and how much it made an impact on me. After reading my blog post about Haiti Louise contacted me and shared how much my blog post had touched her.
You all need to know that Louise is an incredibly talented artist and has the most gracious heart.
She emailed me this past weekend to share with me that my painting was finished that she was inspired to do, after seeing a photo of this beautiful child on my blog post.
I was teary even before I arrived at her home this morning and knew Id break down as soon as I saw it!
Louise this painting is still moving me to tears as i sit here typing this.
I cannot express how much this means to me and your thoughtfulness to do this for me. You have a huge heart and are so talented and I want more people to know about you!
As I was shooting this photo below to share with you I burst into tears again lol. In the actual photo of this little one, she is wearing an old brown jumper dress but Louise painted it a beautiful yellow because of the hope she sees in her eyes. Ironically Louise this is one of our new accent colours in our new home we are moving to. I continually to believe in signs from above and this today was one for me. HOPE its such a powerful word and continues to move people.
Us Kufske’s cannot wait to move into our cute new home and have the world as our playground and continue to serve in this great world and teach our girls was graciousness and selflessness is. Louise you are a true reflection of this and when I look at this beautiful child hanging in our new home I will be reminded of our trip to Haiti, of newness, of hope of serving and of graciousness.
With overwhelmingly full heart I thank you! xo
