We had two beautiful days for Easter weekend, and we enjoyed them both. Saturday night, my girls and I decorated Easter eggs and had such a good time. Decorating the eggs was my daughter Becky’s idea—the children weren’t here, so we did it for ourselves. My daughter Mary, her husband Kerry, their daughter Kate, my daughter Becky, my daughter Patty, and her friend Mary Morgan were with me, and we even had two friends join us for Easter dinner.

I love my girls (and my boys, too) and time spent with them. The Radford and Blacksburg area has wonderful places to walk, and we want to do one every day that we can. Pictured above are Becky, me, Mary, Kate, and Patty.
Last week Becky and I went to the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech to hear violinist Joshua Bell. He and the pianist were absolutely wonderful. The whole theatre was filled, including the balconies, and there was total, respectful silence when he played. We were supposed to see him last year, but the concert was cancelled because of a snowstorm.
I am pleased to announce that I am releasing a new print to help raise funds for the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA). AARDA’s mission areas include medical research, patient outreach, and public advocacy on behalf of autoimmune patients. There are about eighty autoimmune diseases, including diabetes, arthritis, and thyroid disease.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Linking Together for a Cure will benefit the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA).
