Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.
~ Robert Browning
It’s just another day here with my daughter in Vermont and my mom in Virginia. How pathetic that sounds; but know that I thank God every day for letting me be a mom to Brianna, and I adore my mother and have her in my heart always. So this truly is just another day. Granted, I wish that I were spending it in their company with a piece of lemon meringue pie and a game of cards. We’ve spent a lot of memorable time together over games of some sort.
My mom’s favorite color is blue, so I try to use that color in cards I make just for her. She also likes things in pairs, which had a play in this design as well. I fought with that third brad, but it insisted that little bit of extra color was needed at the top of the card. The brad was right.
I hope that your Mother’s Day is a wonderful celebration of love.
