Once when we were at an art show,
we got to meet the artist.
We were talking about how Ceesa (at 4)
could see detail in things and draw it.
Things that I miss.
Things that are important to the character
of the subject that she is drawing.
The artist said that is what a true artist does.
My Ceesa is creative and inspiring.
Daily I am reminded of these things.
I found this sitting on the counter the other day.
It is a picture of my momma.
I can not say that it is an exact representation,
but there are definitely points that make this picture my mom.
Ceesa has managed to capture something,
something real that I can't explain.
Maybe it is in the way mom is sitting,
or the way her shirt is draped over her,
or even the watch.
It is such a blessing to watch
this gift unfold in her.
To not miss it,
for it not to be squelched or belittled.
It is amazing.
She is amazing.
Wishing you homeschool blessings,
