In this book I shared my thoughts and some quotes to my family of how they are truly my most cherished gift......to watch them grow and be amazed by their talents is the best gift in the world.
This trip to Washington DC with my husband and children has this special meaning to me now. First, it meant so much to go to an art museum and share with them my love for art. But, the biggest gift was to watch their love bloom. They were acting as if they saw rock stars when they saw paintings they had learned about in school. The excitement was great and they were in a frenzy taking pictures. It is one of my most favorite memories with my family---very spontanious and unexpected. It is also the day I discovered Paper Source in Georgetown and I am so super excited to start working for them in a week. I fly to Boston for my first week of training. I can't wait!!!!!
These were pictures I had tucked in all different corners and I decided to make a little vignette. They are my grandmother(the portrait and the one kicking up her heels) and the one with the ivy is Glen's grandmother(she lived to be 100). The little one on the bike is me and the other little one is my brother, sister and I. I put them all together and it turned out to be a shrine of sorts---but, I love it!!!!! It brings such joy everytime I look at it. I used to have a shrine to the blessed Mother in May and make a crown of flowers for her---It reminds me of those times. My tribute to generations of Moms. I didn't have any black and white pictures of my mom, but that is ok we are spending three days together away, just the two of us.....no shrine needed just an appreciated time together just the two of us----what a gift!!!!!
I have so much to celebrate this Mother's Day. Most of all I am celebrating my 100th post of blogging. My life is so much richer with blogging in it. I find every day it is easier to find something to share with my readers. My week cleaning out my craft space was rewarding. Everything is not in its place or perfect......I still have three piles to go through and find a space for. But, I was able to make a couple of things with my piles last night and I feel like I accomplished a lot this week. Today is the last day to be entered in my 100th post Rose Giveaway---please leave a comment or follow me to be entered. Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!!
