I’d like to introduce you to Mother, the grande dame of our mountain property. From the moment I saw her I knew she would be a fierce spirit guide for my adjoining studio.

How grateful I am for her abiding presence. I am awed by her fortitude; fascinated by her wizened shape; amazed at her faithfulness as she continues to sprout tender green shoots each Spring.

Even now, in this harshest of seasons, Mother stands by. Resilient. Proud. Unrelenting in the face of winter here in these ancient mountains. 




I’d love to send a note when there’s a new post on The Daily Grace. Just leave your email here!

    She adds character. Makes me not want to climb stairs, instead she could get me up. And I will even bet a bear or two have honed skills in that tree!

    What a fierce presence to stand guard and usher in the seasons.

    The fortitude of Nature
    Her beauty, grace & strength
    May it bless us all & keep us focused on what is good, pure & worth the fight.

    She’s beautiful!
    Hope you are doing well!
    I’m painting a Bluebird this weekend and it makes me think of you and your bird families. 🙂

      The big mouthed baby you painted is just down the hall in our guest room. It makes me smile every time I see it!

Hi. I’m Cathy.

This is a blog about writing, creative living, and grace in the everyday. It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it. Thank you for being here with me.
