“When you honor the ordinary moments of life, you bring balance and joy to your family.”
—Shea Darian, Seven Times the Sun
For almost three years, I have been sketching my family in the evenings while my husband reads the bedtime story. When they were younger, we used to read picture books, but now we have moved on to chapter books. (Lately we have been reading the Prydain Chronicles, a series of books I loved when I was a kid.)
Anyway, since Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I have been thinking about how grateful I am for my family. These sketches bear witness to this gratitude.
Happy Thanksgiving to my blog readers! I hope that you find time to spend with the people you love.
