I have quite a few birthdays that I need to make cards for, so I decided to use Laura's fun sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You to make this card. One of the upcoming birthdays is my youngest daughter's. She will celebrate her birthday on Mother's Day. I'm not sure how she feels about that. I personally love the fact that Mother's Day is on her birthday. I think it is so fitting to be celebrating the birth of my last child on Mother's Day. It is what the day is all about to me.
“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
