The Prize - The Bahamas


The Prize - The Bahamas
Originally uploaded by linfrye
And now -- more -- but I have to take a breath because it's all so exciting and wondrous and so kind it does make me cry.

The 'prize' for all of her hardwork is a trip for two and a week at a luxury resort in the Bahamas! This includes room, meals, spa, activities, pool, beach, all of that in the glorious sun .....

We both wish her dear husband could be home in time to enjoy this gift ...

Since it seems he will be out of the country a bit longer, Michelle has generously offered to take ME to the Bahamas with her!!!! I am over-the-top!
We'll leave late next month (after an insane month of obligations for both of us ) -- and fly out for some sun and 'girl' time --- We'll take her daughter with us too -- I am absolutely HONORED! And I have the utter privilege to share even more in her hard-earned award.

I decided I'd better practice my sea and palm tree sketching to ready myself for this unexpected, generous gift!

And I thank my dearest, sweetest daughter ... I am doubly proud and most humbly grateful for the trip .. but more ...for YOU, Michelle!

Your daughter and grand-daughter are beautiful. I can see, by the honors she received why you would be so proud. Your painting is just perfect for the occasion. Great job Lin.

There's nothing so relaxing as walking along a tropical beach like this. We once lived in three bamboo huts on a beach almost like this. Three little children under six. Moments of tranqillity as well as times of madness in trying to do 'development' projects with the extended family in Fiji.
