I went through a difficult patch this year and came out looking at life in a different way. During those days amongst the thorny thickets, a women with an infectious smile never spoke. When Mary’s insides came out I took a deep breath, held it, and began to cry. Others thought to make her smile a joke perhaps about the gray cloud above her head, but I knew, inside her smile was a cry for help. Mary inspired me to create this gift for her. Behind every gray cloud is a bright sun pushing forward to light the way.
