paint me a picture

Little one, paint me a picture…

image001

Start with a world covered with blue skies and big puffy cotton candy clouds

image002

And in that sky, paint me a big bright sun with rays shooting off it like fireworks

image003

And near the sun, paint me little swirls of breezes that carry little birdies on their curves

image004

And under the swishy swirls, paint me grassy hills speckled with pink and periwinkle and yellow flowers as bright as the sun above

image005

And on the highest of those hills, dab a pretty little blue house with black shutters and a red door and a dog and a tree swing

image006

And in that house paint the windows wide open with soft white curtains swishing in the breeze across the rich wood floors

image007

And just past the wood floor covered halls, paint me a golden yellow bedroom with a little girl in it as pretty as you

image008

With eyes the color of the sky and the cutest curly pigtails I’ve ever seen

image009

And give that girl lips the color of pink roses with a smile as sweet as sugar

image010

And next to that girl, paint a mama

image011

with arms that are strong as steel,

image012

deep smile lines that tell the world she’s been smiling because of you,

image013

tiger stripes across her body that show the warrior she was for carrying life

image014

and paint big puffy red hearts in her eyes

image015

And paint the mama and the girl snuggling in a big comfy chair in the corner of the room

image020

the same chair the mama had sat in quietly for months daydreaming about this little baby girl when she was still in her tummy

image021

oh, and those steel arms? Paint them wrapped around the little girl so tight three times…

image016

once for the day she was born when the mama fell in love…

image017

once for today when her mama is grateful for her…

image018

and once for everyday in between

image019

And little one, if you can paint me some sounds, paint me laughter because the little girl in the painting is the funniest little girl in the whole world

image022

and if you can paint emotions, paint me love, all over the paper, a nice thick layer will do.

image023

What’s that, little one?

image024

Ah yes, you already have.
