Keep Your Eyes on the Light, 7 x 5 oil still life

Day 18

Keep Your Eyes on the Light 
© Donna Pierce-Clark

This is another memory from my paternal grandmother, Mamah.
When I was in college, she had sold her home in Columbus.
She went to Florida to live with my Uncle; but, she sent little gifts like this to me.
At the time, I didn't realize how precious it would be to me as i grew older.

I missed her; but, have realized since that time, that my cousin
who is still in Florida, and is also my father's namesake,
Paul Pierce, got to be near her during those years I was missing her.
So, Paul, we got to share! That is a good thing!

My dear cousin, Paul and his wife, Ange, are both suffering from cancer.
They have one child. Cole is serving our country in the armed services.
If you care to bless my heart, please say a prayer for this very special little family.
Thank you!

And, no matter how dark life gets, remember to keep your eyes on the light!
Always look at the bright areas around you.
Always look for the best.

God bless you all!
See you tomorrow, 
Love,
Donna
