Life or "Love" Passed On

Hi, Friends, how have you been?

This week, I'll chat over "life" passed on among people.
I saw a lady became a granny. The lady's joys were so beautiful. She got more excited than her daughter. The lady showed me the new born baby's photos. So sweet. The lady was an atheist, but she claimed loud over the phone, "It's a miracle, miracle!!!" that made me smile. Friends,  "life" is a miracle that makes even an atheist cry in awe and joy. 
Such a precious "life," it's hard to imagine that technology will be able to produce in a test tube at a lab.

But is that all? To some extent, I believe we pass on lives or I should say, we pass on "love" to someone ; that's a miracle.

I have met many adopted people. So, this is my etiquette not to ask "Where do  you come from?" That's too rude and lacking sensitivity. If a person feels comfortable with me, s/he tells a private story.

As far as I know, step parents are full of love. One professor gave us a lecture about adoption, showing research data and a case study was her, a childless couple. The couple overcame many obstacles and  procedures. Finally, they adopted a racially different girl. However, "so many backlashes, criticism, "hypocrisy" calls came to us," the lecture said quietly and calmly. While giving a lecture, she kept looking down at the paper, not us -- I felt her pains. How brave to talk of the experience! It touched me so much! That's love. Most students -- I regret to say --  were sleeping on seats. After the lecture, I asked other students, "Did you hear it? She's brave, talked about her adopted child." "Sadami, was it? I den kne." Ever since, I admired the lecturer more than ever. In my friends, some couples adopted children. I love to hear their happily showing off of their children. 

The other day, another lady told me, "I have two step daughters" and talked of their happy relations as a family. In response, I said, "You do not need to tell others, "step" daughters, each time. You love them all. If so, all are your daughters! Call them your "daughters.""   

Only love can make people without blood line into one family.


"Love" is the miracle and life must go with love, hand in hand.
Now, BTW, the picture book project is right on a track. I'll enjoy drawing and colour more and more! 
Friends, Happy Painting!!

  1. Love your paintings Sadami, such tenderness in the first one with the grandma. Interesting about the Lecturer, but no matter where someone is from and no matter who brings them up (blood line or not) they are all Family.

  4. Aw, I'm so glad I read this post today! I think it's a shame that we label each other 'atheist', 'catholic', or whatever. To me, it's all one universe and one vast spiritual connection that we all share, whether we want to acknowledge it or not. Too many people don't take the time to think for themselves, they just repeat phrases and thoughts that have been indoctrinated into their thinking, like the word "step" to precede daughters. Your paintings are beautiful and when paired with your words that make a precious picture indeed. Glad to hear the book is going well. Someday I need to get your advice about breaking into the illustration world. I really want to do that!

    1. Dear Katherine,
      Yes, I agree with your opinions. I love the song, "Imagine," don't you? You may play it with a guitar. Regarding your challenge of an illustration world, I'd wish you very the best. Not easy, but never give up. Trust in your talent and have wonderful same-minded, art friends.
      Kind regards, Sadami

  8. Dear Sadami,all of us here today, on the face of the planet, we are the last travelers of an infinite group of people who have lived and created, lived and guarded, nurtured, loved life.
    I find nothing more exciting, after I became a grandmother, than watch the flow of life in the past in the present and in the future.
      Regardless of blood ties, men and women that make life grow, nourish and protect it is the most beautiful goal that humanity has reached, reaches, and will reach!
    I admire your artwork and your words,I wish you a nice week.Warm regards,Rita.

  11. I am not sure which is more touching, the words or the beautiful illustrations. Together, they are overwhelmingly beautiful. I have very close family that is in the situation you describe, and they are a family without reservation.

  12. I really like your sketches and illustrations ... But there is something that I really like and are your thoughts and feelings that bring us here on your blog.
    Indeed motherhood, is a miracle of God, the most beautiful that we have been given.
    The gift of creating life.
    A hug!

    1. Dear Mayra, thank you very much!
      Yes, indeed, motherhood is a miracle of God. It is said, "God could not be everywhere. Therefore, He created mothers." But also, we, women need males or fatherhood to create life. I hope we, a female and a male can help each other and love each other well.
      Kind regards, Sadami

  13. Wonderful words to make us remember (if we've forgotten) that love is what ties us all - not just bloodlines; and there are so many willing to love a child, no matter what color, race, size or handicap and they are truly brave. Beautiful painting, too, of the granny with her new little grandchild :) Well said and illustrated, Sadami.

    1. Hi, Rhonda, thank you very much!
      Yes, that's what I want to write. Everyday, I see brave parents and the beauty of love that some rude people lack understanding and sensitivity. I hope my illustration will bring people love and hope.

  15. Dear Sadami:) A lovely post about the most important famlily issues there is; love. In my profession I see every day that so many people do not know what love means and don't want to put energy in it to find it. It's such a shame!
    I love your painting of the granny; so adorable!!! The other two are gorgeous too! Great paintings with beautiful words. As always:) Have a lovely weekend Sadami. Big hugs:)

    1. Dear Renate,
      Thank you! The granny was very happy to see that work. (Later, I gave it to herʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ) You're always so caring and nice!! Yes, love is the issue and we can give each other. Like you said, unfortunately not many people think of it seriously. It's a great shame, but also it's other people's option that we should not change.
      Today, I swam 1km at a beach in a "storm." Have a wonderful weekend!
      Big hugs, Sadami
