The older I get, the more I've realized life is mostly about attitude. One of my clients emphasized this to me over the past few weeks. I had worked on a commission for her in the end of 2015 and then hadn't heard from her. That's not unusual but she had told me she wanted to have me make something else so I was still expecting I might hear from her soon. About a month ago I did, only to learn that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and was undergoing treatment. She said she still wanted me to make something but now what she wanted was a gift for a woman she had met while undergoing treatment. She explained that the woman's diagnosis had been more complicated than her own but she had a very positive attitude and was inspirational to her. My client asked me to create something for her that would incorporate this quote, "It's a great day for a great day!" (a take off from the title of a tv show on HGTV). We discussed the transformative nature of life and decided a butterfly, created in the colors she loves with some pink sprinkled in as a nod to her battle with breast cancer, would be perfect. I've been inspired by her while working on this; I hope it gives her strength and courage on the days she needs it the most to keep fighting.
