There’s a part of me that finds this difficult to write and share. My mother passed away on Christmas Eve. There are few words right now for all the memories and emotions. But in the meantime, there is art. When my mom, Sara, got sick two years ago, I flew to Texas to be with her. In a quiet moment, I sketched her sleeping.
I still remember the little yellow flowers on her hospital gown.
Looking back, it’s a gift to have these sketches. They’ll always remind me of her.
Living 1100 miles apart, we got to spend very little time together. In recent years, her health issues made it difficult to communicate. This picture was taken in 2004. It’s one of my favorites of us together.
Although we were parted in life and are now parted by death, I have the hope of seeing her again in heaven….and many waters cannot quench love. She will always be my mom, and I will always be her Mellie.
Thank you for reading my blog and letting me honor my precious mother.
Have a wonderful New Year,
