Comics and Happy New Year!

Comics and Happy New Year! • this painting is sold

Well, last year we lost our Mother to pancreatic cancer. She fell on January 17th. We drove her to the hospital and she never came back home. She passed away on July 7th at 5:05 p.m. I wouldn't trade those seven months for anything. Each day bringing my Dad in to see Mom, helping her with her meals and clothes and personal care and looking into her eyes when it was time for her to let go. I really miss her. We all do.

It's hard, yet comforting being at my Mom's house. I cook in her kitchen, vacuum her rugs, make her bed and prepare my Dad's breakfast each morning ... her handwritten notes are here and there and her slippers are still in place by the vanity. And I can hear her voice in my thoughts. I can still hear her calling after my Dad or knocking on the kitchen window to chase away the squirrels. And I can still see her smile.

It all goes by so fast. And I really miss her. We all do.

I know your mom is with you still, looking right over your shoulder as you paint.
