That’s right! I know that’s right! You may go through your whole life and no one gives you an award! No one gives you an accolade! No one acknowledges your gifts and talents. No one gives you a thank you! No one even gives you a gift card. No one speaks kind words to you! But, I am here to tell you that you are important!! Celebrate yourself! Regardless of what others say to or about you, “You are important!” Therefore, I decided on my own, by myself to share with you one of my other gifts, which is, “I am an artist!” Our granddaughter is an artist. These are gifts from the Most High. Our family has been gifted people. Yours too! In 1992, I drew this prophetic drawing showing the foretelling of “firestorms…”not conscious that the drawing was prophetic; had never heard of “firestorms!” But, here it is happening. I actually named the piece, “Suddenly and Without Remedy.” Fortunately, today, California fires have been extinguished about 95% with unprecedented devastation. The other piece of artwork is actually drawn by our granddaughter from her own 16-year-old mind.

I have given it the title, “Ms. Sweettooth.” This is a message for you. “Don’t forget who you are and your own gifts and talents!” Acknowledge them and use them. Put them on display!” Pat yourself on the back! Teach the children.
