It's a sad day in my house.... today, April 5th, would have been my Mom's 72nd birthday. Instead, it is 7 months and one day since her death.
I have cried more in the last few days, missing her with each breath, than I have in a few months. It's so strange to me that this is the first time in all of my life that I won't be talking to my Mom today.
Anyway.... I created this card several weeks ago when I found the sketches for the Paper Crafts Connection design call for their new card sketches magazine. I decided to not submit my cards for publication. Some of them I really liked and I should have submitted them.... but alas...
This is one of the ones I really liked....

Mom, you were always more than just my Mom... we were always a friend to me.... we miss you so much, and love you more than you ever could have known. I am so happy you are no longer in pain and no longer scared of what was to come. I hate that for you to be pain free, I had to lose my Mom.
