~a special Christmas gift~

The long drive into our neighborhood has a walking trail parallel to it.
It also has a cute little bridge that was built and dedicated to my father in law, who passed away last May.
The trail and the bridge hold a special place in our hearts.

Below is our hallway gallery wall, and thanks to my dad we have a special new addition.

For Christmas, my dad painted and gifted us with a canvas of "papas bridge"
Let me tell you, all 4 of us were crying when we opened it.
It's just beautiful and has such a special meaning.
My dad is one talented guy with a big heart.

This is something we will cherish forever.

That is beautiful, Melaine. The beauty of the painting and the meaning behind it. My father-in-law is a wood carver and hand carved a baby rattle for my little one when she was born. Art from loved ones is definitely something that will always be treasured for generations. Money can't even buy those priceless pieces. :)

Not only a beautiful painting but so special too!! What a treasure. Makes me want more treasures in my home tied to wonderful memories and not just mass marketed "stuff." :) And yes, your dad is very talented. :)
