Susan's One Layer Wednesday Challenge over at Simplicity ties in with her Week of Gratitude. Wednesday was in gratitude for mothers. If our own mothers aren't living, we could make a card for someone who is like a mother to us.
My mother died in 1979 and I still miss her. Fortunately I had a very special aunt who was like a second mother to me. Aunt Peg loved to do crafts and loved sharing that with me. I couldn't wait to go spend the week with her in the summer and I especially loved spending the Thanksgiving weekend with her. We would always create all kinds of wonderful things.
She is in her 90s now and not able to keep up with her letter writing like she used to. She can't hear so the telephone isn't a good option either. So I can send her a card once in a while to let her know how much I love her and miss her. Susan's reminder was well timed.
So this is for you Aunt Peg. I sure do love you and I am so thankful that you were in my life.
