Observations on life & art and the inspirations I see around me

Cause for Celebration

I've spent the afternoon sorting thru art supplies and sent several boxes home with Sally, a friend who is doing her counseling internship. She'll be using art in her work. I think that is great as I believe Art is a healing activity for everyone. Thanks Mom & Dad for teaching me to share.
Mother would be 84 today. It's hard to believe she's been gone nearly 9 years. The picture above was our last Christmas together.
I made the book a few years ago about Mother's life up to the time she married Dad. I think I need to do "Chapter 2" and beyond, covering their 56 years together.
Sunday would have been Dad's 94th birthday. With my brother and uncle also having March birthdays we had big family get togethers right about this time of the year. I miss those.
I think I need to bake a cake this weekend and invite family & friends over to celebrate....Life, Art, Friendships, Spring, and Sharing Memories.

Today at the house was really lovely. I thought about how we would have been celebrating birthdays as well. Your post brought tears to my eyes as I miss both Granny and PawPaw and think of them often. The cardinals were watching over us today!
