She is my Sunshine

She grows things on her off-days…

and grows them on her on-days too…

She creates drawings for us to dream about, and then helps us plant them too…

She collects seashells by the seashore

…and hides the perfect cards for me to find…

(I found this one this morning)

She’s a flower-baker, a shell-shaker, a day-maker- she’s my Mom!

    The card is so sweet! Having had adopted all four of our children that card makes think of the waiting time with each of our children. (Even though that may not be the meaning of her card.) Your mom is an amazing, talented, and understanding person. Give her a big hug from me!

    Layla – This is a beautiful tribute to your Mom. I am sure she is very proud of you, and always has been.

    How lucky for you to have such a loving and thoughtful Mother, and that’s why you are a real sweetheart !
    Have a nice Christmas……
