My husband ask me why I was sad today,he said its mothers day,you should be happy. I told him I wasnt sad at least I didnt think I was. I continued with my morning and decided to sketch alittle,there was a great picture in a magazine of a lady holding an umbrella that I loved and have been wanting to sketch so after a couple of hours sketching,I started painting her and these two figures in the background,a mommy and her daughter. As I was working on it,I couldnt help but think about what my husband said "that I was sad" was I ??? I came to the conclusion that yes I was alittle sad, I wonder why? After I finished the painting,I was staring at it and I thought thats me with the umbrella all by myself and in the background,those two figures well they represent my own children(even though I have three,one still is at home) and thats why I'm alittle sad. My children are all grown up and I miss them being little sooooo much,I miss being their mommy! I know its silly, I should be happy that they grew up to be such beautiful,caring,happy,loving, individuals,not to mention that I'm blessed with being a memaw(another name for grandmom). But I can't help but to take this day and remember them being so little and to cherish and be thankful for those precious memories of them being so small,when I was their mommy! Happy Mothers Day!
