A Mother's Day Tribute

While a lot of my fellow stampers are busy creating beautiful cards for their mothers for Mother's Day I thought I would take this opportunity to remember my mother and mother-in-law.  I can't give them cards or gifts or take them out for a meal anymore, but I can express my thanks and love for their unfailing devotion and caring.  They both passed away within six months of each other and this was one of the most heartbreaking years of my life.

But I don't intend to spend today dwelling on the sad. I much prefer to remember the happy times.

So here's to two lovely ladies - my dear sweet mum and my caring mother-in-law - I'm so blessed to have had two mothers.

This is also a tribute to all mothers past and present.image

God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine,
And He moulded her heart of pure gold;
In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful mother,
And He gave that dear mother to me.
