Wishing Everyone a Happy Mother's Day!

I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Happy Mother's Day tomorrow. Mother's Day for me is still a very difficult day to get through. Below is a photo of my Mother, which is her Senior class picture. She passed away suddenly and very unexpectedly 4 years ago. She was just 62 years old. November 27th, 1943 - January 10th, 2006.



Below is a pillow that I just finished and will list later today on Ebay. My mother always was very encouraging with my sewing, and would tell me I should try selling what I made. It was a few months after she died that I finally got up the courage to offer my handmade creations on Ebay, and I hope she's proud of me for taking the chance :)

Happy Mother's Day Sweetie.

I love the tribute to your Mother and the story of how she encouraged you to live your dream.
She was so very right about the wonderful talent that you have and she knew you needed to share it with others.

hugs

Hello Brenda... I so understand how you feel, I lost my mama twenty eight years ago this year, and she too was only 62 years old... maybe our mamas are best friends in Heaven, watching over us... wishing you a beautiful Mother's Day of your own tomorrow... it is a hard time of year for those of us who have lost our mamas... xoxo Julie Marie
