Wedding Shoes


Well, it was a really great grand opening reception. A few pieces sold and many mothers gathered at Modest Fly Art’s new home. We drank wine, ate home baked goods, chatted, gave out raffle prizes, and enjoyed each other’s company, but, after a few hours, the night ended and we were left with an empty room. So, we closed the doors, moved on, and looked forward to tomorrow…

A couple of tomorrows later, it was mother’s day!

It was set: family breakfast, a visit to grandma, then… wedding stuff…
The day started off nice with a huge family breakfast and it was going to be fun-filled day. Then, we drove up to grandma’s grave site and tried to overcome the fact that we had to spend mother’s day without her for the first time. We stood there for a while, glanced over at each other, felt the unexplainable together, then… moved on… we moved on to whatever it was we were supposed to enjoy without her… So.. we helped each other smile and walked away…
By the end of the day, we had picked out my wedding shoes, were toasting to them, and moving on… It was a memorable mother’s day… I wouldn’t have wanted to spend it any other way…
