I painted these as part of a group project from one of my online support groups for my first mothers day without my girls. The one on the left says "yet in the stillness of the night, my empty arms still hold you tight" and on the right says "mom holds her children's hand for a moment, their heart forever". Going through your first mothers day without your children in your arms is almost too much to bear. It's supposed to be a day to celebrate your motherhood, not a day to mourn that even though you're a mom very few people will still recognize you as one because they can't see your children. This project helped to keep my hands and mind busy on such a hard day.
