In all this downtime, I've been napping, reading and pinning things like crazy. I'm hooked on pinterest. Darn you, Janette. :) But thanks to pinterest, I've finally nailed down the tattoo, I want to get for my mom. I promised her that I would get one for her since she never did and then couldn't get one when she was so ill.
I thought of all sorts of tattoos to get. Should I get her name? How about a symbol for her? What would a fitting tribute to the woman that raised me, that loved me and that was my best friend be? She was a Leo, should I get a lion? A rose because that was her favorite? None of those seemed fitting. I started to think of a phrase that would encompass what my mother meant to me. Maybe the proverb she always said to me?
“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” or maybe a symbol of that? but what?Wait before you freak out...I'm not thinking of getting the ribcage and script. Just the script. It's a line from my favorite poem and I know Mom would love it. I want it either around the flower I got when my mom and dad were with me or beside it and I would love to include a very simple heart near it.
The answer hit me when I saw this...
Now, I just need to pick the font , funds and find an artist. I'm really happy with this choice. I've been planning and trying to decide since before my mom passed away. I know she would like it.
Now, I should get back to work before I get lost on pinterest again.....
Oh by the way... go follow me on there, kay?!
