the Jingle Belles prompt this time is to make cards for people who don’t celebrate Christmas. as a bereaved parent, i know that people who have experienced a loss may not agree that ‘it’s the most wonderful time of the year.’
in 2008, a couple of weeks before christmas and my son’s birthday, he was diagnosed with brain cancer and passed away in june 2009. since then, we’ve changed how we observe the season. paradoxically, i enjoy making christmas cards year round; i just don’t look forward to the actual holiday.
i’m more sensitive to how people might feel about certain sentiments so i think sending holiday hugs will be welcomed.
i watercoloured this cute daricies snowgirl with twinkling H2Os; isn’t she cute? i made this for a family member who loves silly snowmen as much as i do.
thanks for popping by.
