As I was looking through my umpteen trillion folders of pictures earlier, I came across the card I made for my mother this last Mother’s Day. I searched my blog and can’t find that I shared it with all of you though. My relationship with my mother has been very challenging for as long as I can remember and I can remember walking so that’s pretty much forever. As I’ve battled depression over the last 6 or 8 months, my mom has really made a valiant effort to turn things around for us. She’s made so many changes that even my children are noticing and I think this card means more to me now than it did when it was originally created.
I can’t tell you what it means to finally be able to have a decent relationship with my mother. There is still a lot of room for improvement, however, things are better than they’ve ever been. Funny how so much good can come out of something bad I think…depression sucks, but I’ve been blessed despite it…or maybe in spite of it.
For this card I used my eCraft and a sentiment from Verve. It’s been a long time since I created it and I’m not sure which SD card or stamp set the sentiment came from.
Now…remember I told you’d I’d let you know what my resolutions were once I figured them out? Well, a thought I keep coming back to is that I should try to blog every day. Either here on my crafty blog, or over at my personal blog Live Faithfule. If you don’t want to miss anything I have to say or show, be sure you’re subscribed/following both! See ya here or there tomorrow, it’s now time to go enjoy a movie with my birthday boy!
