I blame this delayed post on the unreliability of my bipolar computer. Besides that, I celebrated Mother's day in the name of so many Mother figures in my life. I haven't painted since High School, and there is no good reason to why. So, I had this beautiful moment in Walmart (of all places)... when I was browsing through a random isle and I saw a full set of acrylic paint, which led me to the thought of "damn I really miss painting:"... which lead me to purchasing a whole array of painting accessories. From a wooden easele to a varity of paint brushes.
Hand made Mother's Day Cards.....
There is one thing that I will always be true about when it comes to gifts, whether I get indefinitely busy or not, home made cards are the most important, valuable, and extremely meaningful gift that I will ever give to any one in my life. There is something about words that come directly from the heart that trump manufactured ones..
All in all I celebrated the Mothers in my life, including my own Mother, my Grandmother, my Step Mother, Kris's Mother, and Kris's Grandmother. All very important beyond special women in my life. All who have the ability to spark the creativity in me, which to me is a wonderful trait to have as a Mother of any kind.
