Happy Mother's Day
I hope you had a great day, whether
you're a mother, father, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, friend. I had a lovely day and even worked on a small painting. (Not ready yet).
I'm a mother of two young men, and
couldn't be prouder. They have always been and continue to be two
of the kindest, warmest, funniest,
most intelligent people in the world.
Art matters to me, there's no question about it. But on a day like this I realize that my biggest dream as a little girl came true when I held my oldest son, Christopher in my arms for the first time,
and I felt my family was complete when Sam was born.
As a little girl I hauled around a baby doll wherever I went.
Of course it was societal indoctrination, but for me it
was much more than that. I knew I loved babies. What
I didn't know until I started raising my sons, was that
I would love every age of my children, and they would
be a huge part of why I am so happy with my life.
Thank you boys, and thank you Steven for making my
dreams come true.
Love the people of the world today.
