Mom

Moms are so important.  It's amazing the influence they have on the family.  Mom has got to be one of the most rewarding, scariest, and hardest jobs there is!   I learned early on that I, more than anyone else, set the mood in our family.  You've heard the saying, "If Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."  I think there's more truth to that than we realize.  I'm very lucky that my mom is a wonderful mom and set a great example for me to follow.  Now, I'm not saying that I always get it right (I hear Lauren laughing at the idea)!  But I really do try!

This card is made with a set available at Rhonna Farrer's Designs.   It's actually a banner set.  I used the banner to create the background of the card. 

I know I've told you before, but I am so blessed with all my family.   How wonderful that I've never questioned my mother's love and support for me.  I know a lot of people don't have that safety net.  Here I am, close to 50 years old and I know she's still amazingly important.  Love you, Mom!
