For Moms!


Bookmarks made with cardstock and painted in acrylics

A mother laughs
Our laughter,
Sheds our tears,
Returns our love,
Fears our fears
She lives our joys,
Cares our cares,
And all our hopes
and dreams she shares.
-Julia Summers

This quote is from a flyer that Lil A's school, Rajagiri International, gave to all the parents who attended the Mother's Day celebration today. It was a wondeful event with a Fashion Show (I didn't participate:)) for the moms. There was a compatibility test of the child with the mom in their respective classes. Kids had a blast of a time; and even we-the mothers! Lil A and I won the compatibility test of their class and she even crowned me with a cardstock crown with a glittering golden star in the middle while the children of the class applauded. It was a ecstatic! 

I am very much reminded of my mom...LOVE her!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!

Happy Mother's Day Deepa! Sounds like it was such a fun day with Lil A:):) Congratulations on winning the compatability test, though I am not surprised:):) And for getting your art in the magazine - they knew talent when they saw it:)
