Motherhood is such a weighty responsibility and sacred trust, and at times brings you such challenges that are so overwhelming. One can only hope and pray that the children come to a place of trust to receive the wisdom you are trying to impart, and spare themselves, and you, so much heartache and pain.
I recently went through a very trying time with my oldest daughter, who has almost always insisted on learning the hardest ways possible. This painting, "Mother Wisdom" was my creative release during this painful period, and shows the mother holding her heart of love, and the key of wisdom she longs to give to her children (the nest of six eggs...my six daughters!).
