The office manager at my school posted this picture of her, her son, and her mom on her Facebook back in April. It reminded me of my mom and everything I want for my little boy and, because of those emotions, I saved it to draw later. I’m pretty sure it is my favorite picture that I’ve ever done and I can’t wait to give it to her tomorrow morning.
I think that her caption fits it perfectly: “For my Mama. Everything I am, all that I accomplish would be nothing without you. Thanks for your help. Thanks for putting up with me. You are the love of my life.”
