My Road to Practicing Patience

Sunday, May 3, 2015

It has been almost a year, I think, since I started practicing calligraphy. I have always been asked why the need to practice. I kept telling them I just wanted to perfect my handwriting. 

But over the past few weeks, I realized that I wasn't only practicing strokes, I was extending my patience as well. Calligraphy if done in a flash, is I guess okay. But the result isn't great. But when it is done right, without the need to rush, is a beautiful work of art. 

Let me share a few of my work. They are not perfect, but they are a work in progress. These are posted in order from the most recent work I've done. 

Happy Birthday K!

It's her 5th birthday today. She came into the room and reminded me. "Mom it's my birthday today!"

I said, "I know."  "Can I open my gift now?" And I told her to wait for me as I was still in the bathroom. She was wondering why her gift didn't have any names on it.

To my dear sweet child, 5 years have gone by. I love you, daddy loves you, everyone loves you. I pray you'd grow up to be a good girl who loves God and your family. Happy Birthday nak!
