A Reality Check

December 11, 2010 | My Jottings

We’re getting pummeled with snow and wind, Sara and I have bad colds with fevers, and in a minute I’m going back upstairs with a cup of tea to rest. But first I wanted to share a recent drawing that my granddaughter Clara did of me.

She and Elijah were spending the night a couple of weeks ago, and while I was sitting on the bed folding clothes and they were quietly drawing, Clara said, “Grandma, do you want me to draw a picture of you?”

“Yes!” I enthused, “I would love that!”

“Sit really still, Grandma,” Clara instructed, and for about ten minutes I did, until she was finished.

Here is her drawing, and I hope it makes you smile as much as it did me.

I am so glad she drew me looking happy, and I actually think the ears are pretty good.

    To me the drawing of you represents both the peace and happyness that your grandkids see in your face of their grandma. Is shows a comfort they feel, but I never knew you has such short hair these days – I was blessed by it. 🙂

  2. Just Julie says:

    It’s the same hair I’ve had for years, Lar – you’ve seen it. 🙂

  3. Lloyd says:

    Captures you well, Julie! Give Julie a gold star.

  4. Ember says:

    Hope you and Sara feel better soon xxx

  5. Just Julie says:

    Thank you Ember. We’re pretty well now.
