I wrote a post on my Little Winged Ones blog today about our sweet Maeve and the enormous and surprising ways in which she misses her twin sisters. She grieves them deeply, and yet she was born the year after they died. Witnessing her wholehearted pain surrounding their absence from her life has been humbling and profound. I never imagined a person could miss so deeply someone – or two someones – they’d never met.
She painted these sweet pictures the other day, asking me how to spell their names and working hard to form each letter with precision. She made them both a sky painting because they live in heaven now. She amazes me.
Painting with her the other day inspired me to create a few new paintings of my own, specially designed for other families who have lost their little ones.
They are available in my Etsy shop and are meant to be personalized, because seeing our children’s names is such a meaningful way to remember them.
I’m also excited to announce that my Offer it up mugs have arrived – a full week early – and are also available now! You know I used one for my coffee this morning.
Friday night is Pizza Movie Night in our home, so I’ll be spending the afternoon searching for yet another movie that appeals to ages 3 to 11. The pickings are slim (send help!). If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them.
