After a recent visit with my Mom she noticed my Mary statue in my dining room.Along with my Rosaries she questioned why I have these since I am not Catholic.
I told her that I find them beautiful and love to display them in my home.After speaking with her she told me that she had one that she wanted to give me.
When she handed this to me she had told me this is one she had since she was a small child.She painted this when she was in kindergarten.But she had it tucked away for years.
I asked her why I have never seen this.In all my years of childhood I have NEVER seen this sweet Mary statue.She could not answer but to say it was just put away.
In all the times I moved as a child and there were many,many moves I have never seen this statue.
She is in amazing condition considering her age and the times we moved.
This was an early Christmas gift from my Mom.
My Mom does not know it but this really means so much to me.
A family heirloom that is priceless to me.
Something I will cherish always.
Something I will give to my daughter someday.
And she will give to her child and so on.
Touched by my Mothers hands as a child and now is so special to me.
She is lovingly displayed in my china cabinet in my kitchen for all to see.And this Mary has a story!
Thank you Mom!
