hardest job you'll ever love....

'Fresh Bouquet'
Acrylic 16" x 20" x 3/4" canvas


Being a mother and raising kids is the hardest job you'll ever have, but will always be remembered as the one you loved the most.   We had three kids that were each approximately three years apart,  Elsie, Emma and Doren.  These children were the greatest gifts a mother could have ever received and I am very thankful for them.   .....and now we are so blessed to have a most precious grand-daughter!

Last week she spent three days with us....she has quite the imagination and we have so much fun's not always easy, but YES, it is another hardest job you'll ever love!

 "let MiMa take your picture"

"There you are!"

Happy Mother's Day!

with much love...Elizabeth

I just dropped by from a Beautiful Mess, and was stunned by your bewildering artwork! I am stunned!

Happy mother's day, you have raised amazing children, at least this is how I came to know them from their blog :)

So nice to have met you, your work definitely tells your story!
