Some days the things I’m grateful for seem to be hiding. Trying to stay positive and enjoying each moment of a stay-at-home-mom’s day is hard. I am grateful to be able to be home with my kids, the house cleaning not so much. I can’t keep on top of it all and I do try. I need to be more like a hummingbird. Here is a quote from the card company Papyrus that inspired my latest painting:

“Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. Hummingbirds open our eyes to the wonder of the world and inspire us to open our hearts to loved ones and friends. Like a hummingbird, we aspire to hover and to savor each moment as it passes, embrace all that life has to offer and to celebrate the joy of everyday. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.” Papyrus


I will be getting this scanned for prints and cards. Will post when I have those available.
