Phil has always gotten me something for Mother's Day and right from the start I told him to please not get me any of those dead flowers because after all, once they're cut they're dead. I'm also not much of a jewelery person. If I am going to be given a gift, I want something that I want and that is usually something useful. However, he does always get me the most perfect cards. I love how this one is made with the flowers up off the paper and the little gems in the center of the flowers (good ideas for making cards!).
Now a little tribute to my mom. My mom was the greatest person I ever knew. She went through a lot in her life and didn't get a whole lot back in return. She has been gone almost 18 years now. She died of cancer two weeks before my daughters birth when she was just 51 years old. I miss her every day.
