I was listening to the gentle rain this evening. So long awaited as it has been so hot and humid. Typical Georgia summer weather. Anyway, listening to a beautiful song and music by Sting-thanks Sky. Rain, good music, time for momma to paint.
This one is for you Dear Selby. I know what it is like being a new mother. It can be difficult with all of the physical and emotional changes. Relax, take time for your enjoyment, and most of all find time for laughter and joy. I have been there, everything will be all right dear lady.

I was so impressed with this image. I almost posted before reading your description. I can tell you, I got a little catch in my throat when I read you were listening to something I had given you. What a great combo - Sting, and the rain. I'm so proud that It helped you produce this loveliness!

Alexandra,
What could be more symbolic than a white lily to celebrate the
birth of a new baby. A beautiful sentiment, painting and gift
from the heart. :)

MaryAnn and Juz, Thanks so much dear ladies. My heart is with her on this new journey. It was not easy for me to go into motherhood. I was this loner free spirit of a woman before I succumbed to these maternal desires, and once I had my children, I became as a mother bear forgetting about myself at first-and this will catch up with you-the depression sets in, and knowing how to handle all of the responsibility and the new tasks are nothing short of overwhelming in the beginning. I am just now learning something that I wish that I had known in the beginning-to just relax, breathe, and to take one day at a time.:)

The gentle rain makes the flowers glow of new life and it's quite consistant with the dedication to our most appreciated friend Selby who is probably living one of (or just) the most engaging and fulfilling moment of her life.
Dear Sandra, all Your different works glow also because they all share with You Your generous heart. This is no exception.
