Celebrating 14 Years Living in the USA

Today is my fourteen anniversary living in the USA. I don't go anywhere as I'm still in my vacation till Sunday, tomorrow. My youngest daughter and I planned to go to Hibernia park to do sketching. We both were interested to sketch one of the lakes in there, but she canceled. She preferred to stay at home and finished her anime drawing challenge. That was OK because yesterday actually we went there already and we both had fun doing the sketch of Hibernia mansion as you see the results below.

As she finished her anime drawing, I continued reading a manuscript of one of Indonesian authors who asked me to write foreword for her book. I was honored to get this invitation. This would be part of my 14 celebration today. I also kept finishing my writing project. It's little bit slow but intense.
I also got special treatment from my late brother this morning. I got a dream he gave me massage on my feet. Then in the afternoon my aunt sent a message if she and her family visited his grave and my father's grave in the morning. Is it coincident? I don't think so.

"Fourteen years tomorrow," I told my youngest daughter yesterday at Hibernia park, "let's do special thing, sketching Hibernia mansion!" She was so excited. We had fun together. Before we went home, we stopped by at Aldi market, had small shopping, went to a small Chinese food restaurant and bought several food to take them home.

I thanked God for 14 years with all bad and good had happened. I believe everything happens because of God's good purposes. I pray we all are healthy, wiser and will keep moving forward. My goals are finishing my writing projects, making money for Indonesian trip and to help my youngest daughter's dream comes true. She wants to become a game designer.(*)
