FREE Cards Winner and Absorb!

Yeah! The winner of my FREE Cards for Friday was Kim! Shoot me an email, Kim, and I'll send you your FREE Cards! Thanks for playing! Let's do it again next Friday!

I also wanted to show a recent painting titled Absorb. And my short but honest statement:

"Absorb...Sometimes the only word I can use to describe how I feel about my boys..."

Lately, I've been thinking about this painting (which is hanging at WSU Vancouver in Vancouver, Washington) as my charming little three year old climbs all over me whenever I sit on the floor to play. I become a jungle gym and although my neck aches later, I find it a great opportunity to enjoy the closeness. He is growing up quickly and his little voice and soft little body just thrill me to the bone ~ making me want to open my soul and stuff him in so that I can hold him as close as possible. It is so hard to describe the feeling, but I know you will understand, and you can probably put it in words better than me - comment and let me know!

You can see more images of Absorb here:

Have a beautiful weekend ~ the sun is shining, and so are my little boys' eyes ~ we have a birthday party to attend today, and then I need to make a massage appointment (for my aching neck!)

Love & Sincerely, Katie


  1. I feel my boys and girl absorb me in many ways. I get absorbed in their games whilst the time flies. When I look at my youngest, I get lost in his cute little face smiling at me andwish we could be like that forever. Paul absorbs me with his sense of humour: I feel like cuddling him and not letting go. I get absorbed by Victoria and her conversations and forget about everything else, including my dinner being cooked.:D By the end of the day, I'm exhausted, but elated and it is very common to see me fall asleep before the kids do, as you depict in that painting.


  2. That is a *beautiful* piece, Katie! Great capture! :o)


Thank you for your comment!
