I have to confess, yesterday was a difficult day for me.  My mom passed away nearly 26 years ago.  My wonderful Mother-in-law passed away four years ago.  The bright spot in my dreary (it’s been raining for nearly 2 days straight) was the different ways that my sons reached out to me.  My oldest stopped by for a visit on Saturday.  They’re celebrating my pregnant daughter-in-love’s birthday (13th).  My 2nd has been staying with us while his apartment is readied for him to move in.  He gave me Dove dark chocolates.  My #3 son called me from Maryland and my youngest sent me a text.  To his credit, he’s celebrating Mother’s Day with his wife and babies.

So, as you can see, I have plenty of reasons to be thankful. Each of them make motherhood a joy in a different way.  Now to pull myself out of a funk and enjoy it all!

This week I did a little Americana inspired card.  I actually had an American decor in the house we owned in New York.  Love it.
