A big step forward for mother and daughter

Last spring and summer were a blur to us as we struggled through the last stages of cancer with Jackie's mother, Ruby.

One of the therapeutic activities that Jackie did before spending the last weeks in Indiana was to strip the wall paper in the bathrooms.

Carmen chose the new color for the room. We were all concerned that it might be too green. After nearly a year, we finally painted the walls with the settled paint (lots of stirring) while Jackie and Becca were in Chicago. The skill of the painter was also working against any chance of this room turning out right.

A week later, after two coats and several touch up jobs, the room glows green into the hallway. The green glow inspired me to take a picture that couldn't capture a fraction of the color.
