Mothers Day 2021

Birds are chirping, sun shines, blue skies today. I sit in peace this beautiful Mothers Day. I remember so many years in a row of sadness and despair. Fear of dying young like my mom did. Sadness she was gone. Worry about my high cholesterol and my older self as I raised young babies.

Today, for some reason those thoughts and fears have dissolved. I feel relaxed and content. It’s been 13 years since I lost my mom. I miss her so much and wish she could have met her grandchildren. I owe her everything in the making of the person I am today.

I am thankful on this Mother’s Day for my beautiful life in this beautiful city of San Rafael. Surrounded by a wonderful community. I am thankful for my friends virtual and in person! I am thankful for my studio filled with paints and paper. I am thankful for the trail I plan to walk up this morning!

Love to all Mothers out there on Earth and beyond. Love to our only Mother Earth may we protect you and keep you strong.
