Rebecca. So much to say here. First of all, your heart must be exhausted as it works overtime loving the entire world around you.~Lily's Rose is so beautiful, the sparkly swirly light of hope. The deep bold colors of health (red) and life (green)This is what I see. Thank you for sharing this letter...and please oh please...send her that signed copy and a beautiful photo of yourself. ~blessings~

Lily's Rose is perfection. And yes to what Deb said. This post brings tears to my eyes for so many reasons. It's such a blessing for you to have concrete evidence of how far your love and compassion radiate into the world. We all know you're a treasure, but sometimes you might need a reminder -- when you're feeling tired and downhearted.

Lily's rose and the story accompanying it are like the shards of light coming through my office window as I type this. So much suffering and sadness in the world, and yet, so much love and healing, too. I look forward to the opening of the virtual gallery soon.


Why does this place eat my comments? I came back to make sure the link works and guess what? So here, once again with the same loving feeling to let you know what one of my favorite singers can say a thousand times better than I could about what I feel looking at this gorgeous and lovingly created art piece. You already do, but now I am sure, Lily too will discover the secret of the rose:

As always, you are in my heart.


dearest rebecca,
How blessed we are that you are here with us. The light on Lily's Rose glows with your love. Your heart touches me deeply. You inspire me to want to do more and to be a better person.
LOVE you.


This is so awesome. My heart goes out to you and all that suffer. The rose is very special to me for other reasons, but this story and letter are a wonderful reminder that love conquers all.

I wish you a heavy dose of peace my dear friend.


words fail me... but my heart is full. i think you know how i feel about this...


Dear Rebecca, Thank you for the invitation to come back here to see what gift you left here for me, for the world. I almost missed this post in my hurried day, and I am blessed, fortunate, and happy, that I did not. Since I am new to your blog, I didn't know you well, just that you are full of life, joy, grace, and beauty--that you make exquisite art and write words that move me deeply.

Now I can see even more why, and I want to thank you for opening my eyes, and my heart even further. I too don't have the words to express the blessing you leave with me.

Many people, including myself, turn inward with pain and illness; you instead turn outward to bless so many others. Thank you for making this choice and for the gift of yourself that you are graciously giving here and elsewhere--everywhere.

Thank you for allowing me to know you...I love you and wish you love today, Olivia


I am late in seeing this amazing post and this gift of life and love that you have offered Lily, her family, and so many who suffer. I am reminded of the Little Prince and his rose, the one that he watered, protected from the wind, the snails, the tigers and so many other dangers that might befall her by keeping her under a glass globe. "It is the time you have wasted for your rose, that makes your rose so important." “You are responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose.” (antoine de saint Exupery). I believe that you have have been a faithful servant to that responsibility my dear friend. Blessings to you and your beautiful soul.


you amaze me.
humble me.
