Not long ago, I spent many an hour rocking my firstborn to sleep while staring at his stuffed animals. Unable to sleep, unable to paint, I stared at his little stuffed animals and thought how wonderful it would be to paint them, if I only had the time and energy.
So when he was old enough, I did. :)
Presents come in many shapes and sizes. I look forward to spending my Christmas with my two little guys. And I'm thankful that once in a blue moon, I also have time to paint.
And even share the happy little giraffe that kept me company in those long but worthy nights.
