My parents celebrate their wedding anniversary every month. That's how much they love each other -- or how much my mom loves a celebration! This month was their anniversary number 444, so to celebrate the grand day, I painted this picture.
Lilacs were their wedding flower; on the kitchen table was a huge bouquet of the fragrant blooms. As I gave them the painting, Dad said, "Wow. It's so realistic, I can smell it!"
"Yes," I replied, "Aren't you glad I didn't give you one of cattle?"
And we smirked.
