My wife and oldest daughter went to Discovery Cove in Orlando Fl. to swim with the dolphins in the beginning of November. This is the time of our family holiday, which we have named New Life Day. Normally we all go together, but because of reasons beyond our control, only the two of them could go this year. It was still a important time for our entire family. Mainly the two of them getting to share this incredible, healing experience together. Last year we all went to Myrtle Beach which is where the shells on the handles came from and next year we will find a place we can all go. But this year….... This year was for Mother and Daughter and a moment that will never come again.
I made these boxes to honor that moment. To give them something they can always treasure, and always look at to take them back, if only for a moment, to swim with the dolphins.
I made a blog of the journey these boxes took through my shop. You may read it here http://lumberjocks.com/JoeyG/blog/26523 From the moment I saw the boards at the lumberyard, I knew they were destined to become something special. I think I have achieved what I set out to do.
Out of all the things I have built in my life, I have never put my heart and soul into anything as much as I did with these boxes. They represent the love between mother and daughter, and the love I have for them both.
