acrylic on paper and I think 5 x 7 inches
The doors are opening and being filled with hordes of relatives as cousins, uncles, sisters, nephews, neices all arrive bearing tales of travel, laughter, and gifts. With each hug and pat we size up the changes in each other, and look deep into eyes seeing not only the bonds that tie us, but a mirror to our own history. This little present, with it's oversized card, caught my attention. It is from my mother's brother to my mother, and is a small symbol of his incredible generosity. We are so lucky to have each other. She is so lucky to have him. My heart goes out to those who are alone this holiday. I wish we could all be together, everyone in the gathering.
