It’s often said that age is just a number, and my mom, at the ripe age of 95, is living proof of that adage. You see, my mom has a hobby that defies time and brings color to her life, quite literally. She’s an artist at heart, and she hasn’t let the decades slow down her creative spirit. Every day, without fail, you’ll find her perched at her little corner of the world, armed with colored pencils and a complicated coloring book, ready to embark on yet another vibrant adventure.
My mom’s passion for coloring with pencils is nothing short of inspiring. Her dedication to this craft is a testament to the idea that it’s never too late to explore your artistic side. The colors she chooses, the intricate details she adds, and the sense of accomplishment she derives from each masterpiece are truly heartwarming. Her art may not hang in museums or galleries, but the pieces she sends in cards, hang on my fridge, proudly displayed for all to see and appreciate.
In a world that often emphasizes youth and productivity, my mom stands as a beautiful reminder that creativity knows no age limit. As she fills each day with vibrant hues and imaginative strokes, she reminds us that the joy of artistic expression can remain a lifelong companion, no matter how many candles adorn the birthday cake. So here’s to my 95-year-old mom, whose colored pencil adventures continue to inspire and bring a splash of color into our lives every single day.
