"Coconut Nurturing Her Young" As another Mother's Day comes to an end, I wanted to share a few thoughts and one of my favorite images of nurturing I painted awhile back. Being a mother was something I always new I wanted. After Billy and I were married 4 years we finally were blessed with sweet William. He was such a cutie with a head full of red hair. We were blissfully happy with our one precious child. Right after celebrating his first birthday we found out with a bit of surprise that we were expecting Mailey. Now Mailey came out with more of a BANG! And has been fulfilling this role ever since. Not that I'd trade her over the top personality for a more boring one by any means. Their little personalities amaze me everyday. It is a wonderful thing to watch....children growing into themselves.
About 3 weeks ago we learned some very excited news in our family. My little sister Molly and her husband Mike are expecting their first child. It came as quite a surprise to all of us, especially her. You see, she LOVES children. And man is she the best aunt EVER! But having her own was something she never wanted like I did. So this news took some time to sink in, but now is being embraced as a little blessing. It's definitely bringing back many memories of my own pregnancies and all the love I immediately had for Mailey and William before they were even born. And I am most excited that this time next year we will all be able to celebrate this special day together...our Mom, Molly and I. I hope you had a lovely day as well. Creatively, J
