Art Therapy

As my family tries to get back to whatever “normal” is today, I wanted to share a piece of art my 7 year old created, all on her own, for her cousin’s Memorial events last week. Natalie loves art and truly enjoys creating art much more than coloring in pre-drawn pictures in coloring books. Natalie will create several pictures a day, and, although I am obviously biased, she is an incredible artist.

When Natalie handed me this piece of art last week, I was still very raw from losing my niece Delaney. I burst into tears out of sadness… and pride. I am so proud of my daughter for how mature & genuine she has been dealing with this very difficult situation.

Sometimes a little art therapy goes a long way, touching many hearts along the way…

    O. M. G. That girl is amazing. She obviously understands the situation more perfectly than most adults ever will. What a tender heart Natalie has.

    Thanks so much, friends. Kids are pretty amazing. Not just mine, I think most kids can tolerate quite a bit. We’re just honest with our kids, without scaring them with too much info.

    My daughter Diana was five when her little brother Paul died at 22 months. She was the strong one, comforting and consoling us. “It’ll be alright, daddy,” she assured me at his funeral. “He’s with God now. We get to see him again someday.” Which, of course, brought the tears of sadness, and surprise at how wise she was at five.
