This is a picture of my 3 children when my youngest, Kelsey, was about 5 years old. Caitlin would be about 7 and Patrick, 8. They were so adorable, and fun. They still are but , you know, it’s different. Look how happy they are here-and it’s just shells! I don’t remember the last time we all made a trip together somewhere, much less the beach. How sad. I still try once in awhile, when their friends don’t take them away from me for a day (very rare). I guess I just have to smile, remember, and move on.
This is what makes me draw though. These feelings are so strong in me that I have to express them in pictures and quotes, and then for a little while, it’s released. I don’t feel like I’m so heavy with this feeling-it’s expressed where I can now view it on paper. What this feeling means to me.
Thank God for memories. Cheryl
