HB2U Mom

My Mom would have turned 59 yesterday, 
born on September 26 1951.

She became an angel ten years ago.  Since her passing on, some years I remember ahead that the day is coming. But some years the day creeps up on me and hits me with a sad surprise.

This was one of those years.  I began to paint a new piece yesterday without any intentions or direction. I chopped up squares of paper, glued them to a wood canvas and painted it white.  Then I stared at the blank canvas for a while wondering what to paint. Before I knew it I was painting this heavenly angel, still not linking it to my Mom, or her birthday.

I decided her dress needed something more... perhaps some inspirational words. Okay then what words??? It was then it hit me - Mom's Birthday!!!  

I had a little giggle to think that it was my Mother sending me a message from above "Hello Down There... Remember Me??? It's My Birthday!!!"  

So HB2U Mom!!!  I think of you everyday, but you know me..I'm not so good with dates!!! xox

Thanks for taking the time 
to see what I've been up to!

Ah what a precious painting! I am so glad I popped over to visit you after seeing your "little birdie" creation on the Brave Girls link. My momma died at an early age too, so I understand how beautiful your words are on your angel here. It's such a beautiful thought to think that the stars are really our momma angels looking down on us. And yours really did send you a message. Beautiful creation.

It's so nice to meet you!
