My niece Holly started drawing again. Um, can I get an Amen !?! Because after her mother (who was an amazing artist) died, Holly just stopped sketching. It damn near broke our hearts.
But I didn't nag. Actually, I never said a word to her. In the quiet depths of my heart, I was silently and secretly shooting up some major prayers that she would one day be able to draw again. Because I strongly believe she inherited my sister's talent. As an Auntie, it was extremely painful to keep my big trap shut. Although I did talk to my brother in law about it. I know he wished for her to start drawing again, just as much as I did. Still, I never pushed or verbally said anything to my Holly girl. From time to time, I may have left a few sketch pads and some charcoal laying around her house, just in case... (I'm only human you know.) For three long years now, nothing. Not even a stick fish.
Then, all of a sudden, this weekend, there it was. A sketch! Rationally, I know it's just one picture. But I can't help but be thrilled by what it represents. A baby step!! And I couldn't be happier.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I'm really looking forward to hosting Thanksgiving at the Bird's Nest. We have so many things, big and small to be thankful for! ~Jaybird
