Mother's Day Card













This year for Mother's Day I was a little stumped. We just suddenly lost my father at only 67 years old a couple of months ago and a typical "Have a Great Mother's Day" just didn't seem appropriate. It's been so terribly hard and is bound to NOT be her best Mother's Day as all of these first are awful. If you've lost a parent or spouse then you know how difficult these last couple of months have been. Well, as I was blog hopping, I came across this a card "here" and the sentiment spoke to my heart. I KNEW that this HAD to go on my Mom's Mother's Day card. I didn't have the time to order stamps and so I just printed the saying on my computer. If you would like these wonderful stamps, they are for sale here. I wish I could take away her pain and ours, but since I can't, I hope that she can find the "courage" to make the changes that have been forced upon her. I love you Mom!
