|La Madre Triste|
When I started this blog back in 2007 it was my intention to share what was on my mind freely, but that didn't really pan out, so I've mainly blogged about my art. As I grow and evolve I've begun to share more openly about myself. So today, I bring you a heavy post, because I'm having a heavy-hearted week and the art that I create are just expressions of how I feel inside, so it's ok to set these words free.

This year, I can't bring new flowers, a pinwheel or put a new wind chime to offer its melody to the breeze. I didn't think it would be this difficult, but it is. I know that when this week passes, as in all the years before, the sadness will once again subside and I will be able to store away my heartache and continue to learn how to make it better, learn how to turn her memory into something that no longer makes me cry.

I'm thankful for my family, for all the love they have given me, for always helping me understand that everything is going to be ok and for making me laugh and smile every single day.

I leave you with a song titled "Sorrow" by my husband Abdias Ernesto that perfectly explains how I feel.
