Thank you for your votes! Alas, I did not win, but I loved the design that did, and I ended up with a nice page, so it was still a win.
Last weekend I attended the funeral for the husband of a friend. It was a beautiful ceremony, made more powerful by the eulogy of her son. Her son, in the eulogy, said, "My father is not defined by facts, but by the actions he takes every day." That made me think about all the ways I show I am dedicated to my family and others by the ordinary things I do. The following page came from those words:
I used the color inspiration (and very loosely the sketch) from The Color Room. I can't tell you enough how good it felt to think about the things I do every day, why I do them, and how they show my love for the people around me. I strongly encourage everyone to take the time to think about that, record it if possible, and thank other people for their actions too.
