Bloggers Challenge Week 46-Willows for Mother
I can hardly believe that my Friday Challenge will is up before Friday. Quite often, I actually challenge myself on Friday, so I don't get around to posting until Saturday, but this week I am ahead of the game.
Is it because of my wonderful organization skills you ask?? Definitely NOT!!! I always work well under pressure.
This week I am ahead of the game for a couple of reasons. Wednesday's Sketch challenge was SO inspiring to me that I decided I needed to use it for my Mother's Day card. Did you know that this sketch was designed by Lynn Mecurio, who is a member of our Bloggers Challenge Group?
Secondly, My Mother is wonderful (although we bicker sometimes and she continues to remind me that, in her opinion I am going through the change of life) and is deserving of a pretty card. She does so much for myself and my son and although she isn't so silent about it, she can be very selfless. A lot of the times in my life when I SO did not want her to be right, she WAS and as I grew older, I learned to value her opinion and her excellent ability to read people.
So here's to you Mom. You raised me well and you continue to nurture and love us as we are, albeit frustrating at times. Even though I don't tell you how I feel often enough, I love you, your strengths, quirks and even the faults that make up your persona. I hope that I am fortunate to celebrate many many Mother's days with you.
