Happy Mom's Day !
Happy Mom's Day to those out there that have a child or more , natural , adopted or step or otherwise . Whether the child is minutes old or hours old or years past . I am one of the fortunate ones to have a Mother still with me but each year you have to reflect back on past years and how many you may have left with her . She has silver in her hair now and probably more then a few caused by me . Of 4 children she gave birth to , only 3 of us remain . A daughter passed on so many years ago ( 1966 at the age of 5 ) but she has NEVER been forgot on Mother's day as she was born on Mother's Day in 1960 . The past has shaped us into who we are today with our own families and hopefully has made my sister and I better Mother's for it . One of us holds her children and grandchildren tight as where one of us has let her little birds sprout their wings and make it in the big worlds . Two have flown into their lives and embraced their lives and the offspring as where one seems to have trouble finding his path out of the nest . Someday his path with straighten and he will find the way ..... but he is my Baby regardless . And some day he will make a connection to his own little girl and have come full circle .A Mother's job is never done from that first second of life until her last breath but she leaves behind her a legacy for those she leaves behind . We do the best we can and motherhood does not come with instruction manuals . Some times it is a thankless job and sometimes it is very fulfilling ...being a Grandma says it all !

- I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !
