NaBloPoMo 2014 Day 24, Part 2: Always Winter…

…but never Christmas. As winter settles in, I cannot help but think of this beloved story.

This illustration was drawn and painted by my dear friend Courtney Pritchard as one commission of three for my daughter’s bedroom to fulfill the Chronicles of Narnia theme that I had chosen. I wish for my daughter to be as strong and brave and loving as Lucy, though she will be ever so humanly flawed. If she can have the strength and faith of this little girl, then I will be most pleased.
