Birthday Buds

"Birthday Buds" 6" x  6", watercolor; watercolor pencil on gesso'd masonite
(artwork by me)

Today I received a homemade birthday card from my daughter:

Moms are kind of like stars, 
they are spread out over the night sky,
twinkling & lighting up the darkness, 

but when I wake up in the morning, 
and my day is filled with light, 
I know that there is always one star 
who shines above all the others,
the Mom

Happy Birthday always light up my day!
