Born Into Royalty

This is a piece done on recycled paper in acrylic.
I have not been very creative this week. This fun piece just done for the laugh.
The story goes, so you will understand this. Monday my mother's sisters came for a visit. Since neither one can drive. Their children drove them. My mom's oldest sister is 95 and the middle sister is 92. OK, so my aunt Ruby is very hard of hearing, really I am not sure she can hear at all, but really to her it does not matter because she has always done all the talking and really does not care about your voice any way.. I say that in love..My aunt Jewel being the middle sister, to me is always the soft spoken and easy going. My mom was the baby girl.. So you know how the baby girls are.
Now they are all hard of hearing, everyone is talking very loud and all at once..You get the picture . LOL>. So us kids are comparing moms..So one of my cousins said we call mom Queen Jewel, because she always wants it now and and wants it her way.. The funny thing is we all laughed because all sisters are the same.. So we had three queens in one room.
The things is at their age they deserve to wear the crown and if God allows us to become their age then we can wear the crowns..

So I made this one for my dear cousins..If you read my blog you will see..Also I wanted to share this with the rest of the world.. So remember you may not be wearing the crown now but one day you will be in titled to the throne.

Have a blessed day.

P.S. May you always dream in color.

what a sweet and funny post. i'm still smiling and can just imagine their voices talking over each other at once! i think we each wear invisible crowns now and they are as unique as we are :-) xx

I could just hear all the chattering. It reminds me of my family only it was always the men who did the grandpa and my uncles. I hope one day I'll be able to wear the crown. I plan on living a long time!!

Hugs to you and Mom!

Great story. You made me feel as though I was there. And I agree, they deserve the crown once they reach that age!
