I inherited my mom’s journal with 40 years of flowers and trees she planted in the yard where I grew up as a child.
I love that it is in her handwriting…
I treasure it too because it connects us together… we both love flowers and trees.
I’m taking an online class from Lendon Noe hosted by Carla Sonheim called, Inspired By Lives and Letters, which gave me the inspiration to create this piece:
I made a copy of watercolor painting I did last year and a copy of mom’s journal page from the year I was born… to connect our past and present together as a remembrance.
It is a way for me to have a lovely conversation with my past…
A way for me to say, “Happy Birthday,” to my mom whose birthday is approaching in early March even though she is no longer with us.
I’d like to think she would treasure it.
