My Mom passed away in May of 2009 due to complications brought on by battling two different kinds of cancer for several years. Even now it feels like it happened yesterday. Momma was, and will always be, one of my main sources of inspiration for my creative pursuits…and for life. Whether it was my childish sketches and poetry or, as a young mom to our first child, a budding interest in photography and blogging, she never failed to be a source of encouragement and wisdom.
No matter what she did it was with a deep and abiding faith in a loving Savior. When I would lose sight of the precious gifts of faith and grace in my own heart and life, Momma (and Daddy, too!) would remind me.
I’m writing all of this to say that Momma’s death did not inspire me to return to my passion for art…her life did.
Thank you, Momma. I love you. I miss you.
