My Life is Blessed
In a few short days my Mother will celebrate her 72nd birthday! Every day is precious. I lost my father to cancer nearly 15 years ago so each day I have with her is even more dear. Thankfully she lives close by so I can check on her and make sure she has what she needs. We have been blessed that we can maintain such a close relationship. When I saw this image by Flourishes, I knew it would be perfect for her card. She loves flowers and in particular roses. In the yard of the home where I grew up and she spent over 42 years, there was a beautiful cabbage rose bush. We moved her from that spot 3 years ago and I know this image will remind her of those special years! Thanks so much for checking out my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day!
