"Your Right Hand"
14" X 18" Oil on Linen Panel
This is Avery, with her mom, Nicole. Along with her sister, Dylan, and cousin, Kennedy, she was one of the very precious flower girls in our son and daughter-in-law's wedding this past year (Mark and Teresa.) The wedding was held at a beautiful location in St Simons Island, Georgia, hometown of the bride, under huge Spanish moss-draped live oak trees, waterside - complete with an unexpected playful dolphin "swim-by", perfectly timed!
The weather threatened a bit, but cleared as the procession of their large wedding party began. Avery, at 2 years old, was a bit apprehensive about walking down the aisle at all, let alone with only her very capable 4 year old sister. Since sometimes only a mom will do, Nicole came to the rescue. Tho a bit shyly, Avery inched toward the altar as her mom's guidance gave her the comfort and courage she needed. It wasn't so bad after all!!
What are you facing today that is evoking fear, anxiety, worry, concern? What is keeping you from taking that step? Perhaps the problem is who you're walking with.....
