Last year I bought all the makings for this card in order to make a Mother’s Day card this year for my mother. Unfortunately, we lost my mother late last year – so this Mother’s Day is a bit bittersweet. However, I try not to dwell in the sad places in life for too long at a time, so this Mother’s Day, I want to focus on a few mothers who have been in my life for a very long time. While they are not my mother, they are the mothers of my friends and cousins, and they have always opened a place in their hearts for me.
So this year, I would like to thank all the mothers for the tough job they have, and for making a little time to mother children who do not belong to them!
