Thanks Mom

"Rosemary's Orchid" 9 X 12 Watercolor (and early painting in my WC journey) I received this book called "Love Notes to Our Moms and Other Women of Influence" handed out at Walmart by the organization Speaking For Women's Health Foundation. A national organization that was founded in Cincinnati by Diane Dunkelman (www.speakingforwomenshealth.com). This book is filled with "notes" to or about moms, grandmother's or friends that influenced and help shape the influential women featured in the book. So this book made me think about thanking my mom when it comes to shaping my artistic talents. I turned 50 in July. Therefore, I grew up when schools did not have an understanding of a student that daydreamed and was slow in understanding their lessons. My mom noticed that I loved to draw. When I was 12 she enrolled me in an oil painting class at a local art gallery. That was the beginning of my self esteem, grades and artistic abilities improving. All because my mom looked beyond my poor grades and saw my drawing abilities. She encouraged my artistic abilities by taking me to my painting classes which in turn made me feel special and want to keep painting. Thanks Carol (and Norm) for your support in my art! Gaylynn

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. (If he will be possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll I thankful, bye friend).
