Because drawing always makes you feel better.
Now that Foster and Panda have shared their “year of masks” with you, I thought I would share my “year of drawings”. Because it hasn’t only been about masks. This past year was one of changes, emotions, and new routines. And one of the best ways I have found to cope with those things is to draw pictures.
By the time I figured out that this was going to last longer than we all expected, it was Day 32.
By Day 37 I was starting to get kind of used to staying at home.
Being whimsical on Day 39.
Before we knew it, it had been 40 days and 40 nights, and Panda and Foster had done their first “Social Distancing” news report.
By Day 55 I was starting to realize that Mark was “missing out” on all of this.
Being “stuck” at home also gave me lots more time to research my family history.
Father’s Day, and we were still in lockdown.
Two Wednesday Bible studies on the same page.
Sometimes you just have to draw your prayers.
By Mark’s birthday I had quit keeping track of how many days it had been. I wasn’t sure if I should be counting the days since the beginning of lockdown or since Fresno County had supposedly been “opened”.
There is an art to being “Big Girl” during a pandemic. Hopefully I was paying attention to the online Bible study too!
Quoted from “I Sure Miss You” by gospel singer Jason Crabb.
To be perfectly honest, sometimes whimsical doesn’t make you feel better.
Putting the events from my grandpa Emil’s WW1 memoirs in chronological order.
By December it really seemed like the sky was falling.
We made it to 2021.
God has a plan.
And so we arrived at March 19, 2021. I’ve tried to remind myself of this quote throughout the year. And drawing pictures has helped out a lot, too.
