Mom, we love you.


My feeble attempt at a digital collage.

...and a warm wish for a "Happy Mother's Day" to all my dear friends, near and far.

I was ecstatic when this flower bloomed on Mother's Day. I don't know the name of this plant and its flower is so amazing and fragrant. My dear mother-in-law Ada, gave me this plant years ago and I waited patiently for it to flower.

She passed away this past Thanksgiving and today it bloomed. A small, special miracle. I know she's watching over us.

"Whatever beauty or poetry is to be found in my little book is owing to your interest in and encouragement of all my efforts from the first to the last; and if ever I do anything to be proud of, my greatest happiness will be that I can thank you for that, as I may do for all the good there is in me; and I shall be content to write if it gives you pleasure."
Louisa May Alcott - "Letter to her Mother"


Have a wonderful day and thank you for your kind words.

Thank you for remembering us moms on this special day. Well, somebody with a smart commercial insight thought of this day, no doubt. Another way to help commercialism along. Oh, I am being a cynic again, aren't I?

You do a good job on digital art, you should do it more often and not worry about it. Or don't you worry about it? I do like your regular art, though.

Cheers!

The story with your mother in law is touching and mystical. It is no coincidence - my best to you and Gerard and my belated condolences.

The digi-card is lovely.

My best.
