As the month of May comes around again, I am trying my best to keep myself busy...hands and mind. It is a celebratory month as James and I were married on the 8th and my beautiful niece Maryah was born on the 7th. As it happened, we also lost her on the 15th... so the bittersweet runs through.
I can't help but feel torn at this time of the year. I try to move forward celebrating the love we share as husband and wife, and all the special memories and love I was able to have with Maryah. Some days are a bit overwhelming and I try to remember what a gift she was in our lives. She will most certainly never be forgotten, and I pray for my sister Rachel who goes through this loss everyday of her life. I pray that she has answers some day, and is reunited with her precious daughter. So I dedicate my art during this month to the spirit of this beautiful young woman!
