Our daughter, Grace gave this screen print to my husband and I
for our anniversary quite a few years ago.
Although it is an odd & quirky desgin... something about it spoke to her and from house to house
as we have moved, it has been hung in a prominent place in our home.
During a difficult and challenging time in our marriage as we were feeling the strain...
my husband & I were standing in the hallway near the print having a disagreement
when my youngest daughter, then only about 8 came out of her room nearby.
Hearing our argument she pointed to the screen print and blurted out ...
"Well why don't you both just go have a cup of coffee?"
We looked at each other and couldn't help but smile.
In her innocence and youth she had made a good point.
Were things that impossible & important that they could not be worked out?
That screen print along with our daughters insight
was an unexpected catalyst towards healing and reconciliation.
In our recent downsizing this past May...I considered adding the picture to the garage sale pile...
until I was reminded once again, by a well-meaning daughter, now 16 yrs old...
You can't get rid of that mom....and she was right I couldn't!
