My brothers and I really consider our mom as one of the smartest and wisest person we know. You can talk about anything with her. From politics to everyday silly stuff. She's sharp and very matter of fact. There's no going around her, she'll call you on it. And she's very rarely yell. Growing up, we know we're in big trouble when she's very calmly said she needs to talk to us. She knows she can get us in shape simply by talking. My cousins used to say that my mom has fire in her eyes. And yes, all the kids behave very well near my mom.
My aunts could yell or what to her kids and they might not care. But, if it's my mom, that's a different story. She's the disciplinarian in the family, but she's also the sounding board for everybody. She's the peace keeper of the family and the glue that keep the family together. From her parents, to her siblings, to my cousins, everybody go to her when there's family issue.
I wish my mom live closer to me instead of on the other side of the globe. I miss her all the time. I made this thank you card that reflect my feeling for my mom. I choose blue and green as the main color, cause blue reminds me of the ocean. It looks calms, refreshing, and underneath it fills with so much beauty and life. That's my mom. Always calm, and when you get to know her better she's so much fun, always up for anything fun, and has such a beautiful soul. And green, that's one of her favorite color.
The sketch is from Mojo Monday 137 and I used Hero Arts Large Flower, Stampabilities Old Writing, and the greeting is from Papertrey Ink.
I am thankful for my mom and I hope she knows how much I appreciated her. Hope all of you have a wonderful Mother's Day celebration. :) Hugs, Vera
