Thursday things

I am heading out of town for a family gathering. We will be celebrating the life of my mom’s older brother. There were 5 siblings, now there is one. I am thinking a lot about family and connections and lives well lived.

When we helped Dad, I brought home this precious watercolor. This is my mom as a young girl, painted by my grandmother’s best friend. You can see that my love for making has deep roots.

I am looking forward to being with my cousins, sharing stories of our parents, and knowing that they are together once again.
