More good news! Today is my wonderful Mum’s birthday!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM!
I’m so very grateful that she’s mine. I know you know how lucky I am!
I posted this poem a few years ago (I unfortunately did not write it, but it’s uncredited online so I’ve got no idea!) but it is SO appropriate and spot on for my Mum that I’m going to share it again!
They say you can’t choose family, but I feel rather blessed..
that I was given a special mum, who stands out from the rest.
She nurtured me through childhood, and gave me sage advice…
like to always wear clean underwear, and be courteous and nice.
Teenagers can be traumatic, I gave my fair share of stress..
but despite my tantrums and late nights, she never loved me less.
As I grew up and flew the coop, on adventures far and wide…
I have always felt that her wise words, were right there by my side.
These days we don’t get to spend much time, together on our own,
to simply chat about life, or have a good old moan.
Yet one of her hugs is all it takes to solve my latest woes.
I love you mum, completely… from my head down to my toes.
It’s so lovely!! Just like her. And I cannot wait for one of those hugs!!!
And yep! Back-to-back Birthday and Mother’s Day in one weekend! It is her weekend. And boy do I wish I could be there with her to celebrate her properly. But we know we will make up for it when we can do so safely! And that’s more important than a party, eh?
Since my Mum’s birthday also falls on one of our Sharing Saturday’s, I’m going to share some of my favourite photos of her, as well as your usual stunning artwork!
Just a little collection of my some of my favourite photos. I have so many more! Which is lucky. So so so many good memories to bask in until we can make more together soon! It was just announced that all adults will be eligible for the vaccine here in the US, from May! That’s good news that I know my Mum will LOVE to hear.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMA!! 🙂
Now… on to our usual programming! YOUR beautiful artwork!
Check it out…
BLIMEY! Blimmin’ brilliant! All so special in their own ways. Stunning card after stunning card, as usual. Thanks for stopping in to have a look at them 🙂 If you want to see even more inspiration, look no further than the Groovi Worldwide and Clarity Worldwide! An epic mixture of artwork. Make a cup of tea and have a gander!
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for wishing my Mum a Happy Birthday with me!
Lotsa love, Grace xo
