The theme for one of my favorite challenges this week is
And the artists at
have invited us to have fun with it.
Normally, I do have fun with my art, and I would have fun with this, but
it's been a very difficult week.
My daughter's father was killed by a drunk drive a few days ago, 
and the pain has been immeasurable for so many of us.
I created this LO in honour of him and our beautiful daughter
and there was no joy in creating this, believe me.
But it's worth sharing, I think.
I am going to ask you to please take a moment to watch this news report
and to please,
think long and hard before you ever
get into a vehicle after having a drink.

The consequences can be unimaginable.

Thank you for looking and helping me
say Goodbye to John.
