I’m posting a little sweetness today, an early Christmas hug if you will. It’s from me and my mom. I’m getting ready for our big family Christmas party tomorrow! I’ll post some pictures later, I got really cute party favors I want you to see!
But today come with me and get to know my mom a little…I know you’re busy but It’l only take a second…
My mom, Betty Jean Roberts, was quite an artist. She was one of those women who could do about anything creative. She made quilts, sewed clothes, did flower arrangements, made beautiful cakes, (back in the day, she catered weddings!), sketched, painted watercolors, painted murals…the woman had to be creating or she wasn’t happy. Now, if she were still here, on this side of eternity, she’d be loving this blog! She would pray for each and every one of you every day. She’d make you things and send them to you. And at this time of year, she’d paint one of her Christmas cards in your honor…
I wanted to take a moment and share with you some of her paintings ~ they reveal her heart~ and mine too ~
Hummm, I wonder why my favorite season is Autumn?
Wonder where I got the love of all things home?
~She loved Christmas~ And Snow~ (No wonder I’m a Southern girl who longs for snow!)
This is my favorite painting. She told me that she painted it thinking of me and all the things I love. (It’s framed and I couldn’t get a good picture…but notice that I’m snuggled on the couch reading to my little ones, notice the walls of books, the cozy fire and low and behold it’s Christmas!
This is the last Christmas card she painted in 2005 just weeks before she left.Sometimes when I look at it I wonder…is that where she’s living now?
I’m passing it along with prayers for you to have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year~With Love~Mom & Me
