Through it all, I see strength.
My mother’s strength is not common. It was created from a drive to “BE”.
She refused to accept her circumstances, and never gave up on her dreams.
When the happenings of her past attempted to drown her in darkness, she broke free, choosing to see beauty. Her optimism survived the storms.
The gift was yearning to be set free, so she kept pushing forward until the opportunity arrived.
Her artwork tells her story even when that is not her intention. The canvas is her invitation to a journey toward peace.
