Linda is an incredibly talented illustrator and graphic designer who was someone that has been a friend and supporter of my work since I began this blog. In fact, Linda not only drew the art for Good Things Going Around, she also created my So Much PETential training art as well. I am so grateful to her. I love what she came up with for me.
Linda shared with me a quote that inspires her and reminds her of her own life.
“When the world says, ‘Give up,’ hope whispers, ‘Try it one more time.'”
Below are Linda’s words
When I first got on Facebook in 2009, I wanted to find a phrase that expressed how I felt about my life. In a matter of months, I had lost my husband of 34 years, Ken Mitchell, and my career of over 25 years in graphic design. I found myself in a very desolate place, questioning everything I had always believed in. Inch by inch, with the help of my children, Kevin Mitchell and Shannon Mitchell Bowman and a few very special friends, I made my way back to a life worth living. I found love again with Mike Hendley, and was recently hired as Creative Director at Tressa, Inc. Life IS good! Enjoy it! And NEVER give up.
