Mother's Day Rose
Oil on Paper, 5 x 10 inches $80.
This beautiful red rose was one of many handed out by the men of my church. Better yet, they gathered to cook a fantastic Mother's Day breakfast. They could open a restaurant!
I still have my mom and she lives with us in a studio apartment we made from our Master Bedroom Suite. She is going to be 84 years old in a few weeks. In the mail, she received a touching card from her granddaughter, my daughter. I asked her after she read it to me, if when she was childless for the first seven years of her marriage to my dad, did she ever think she would receive a Mother's Day card. I know those barren Mother's Days were painful, just as they are for couples with the same problem today.
My mom has a very special collection of cards, letters report cards and school drawings placed lovingly inside a special box. I've opened that box several times for a trip back in time. I remember many of the cards and how old I was when I gave them to her.
