Front of Card:
Hopes and Dreams
All wrapped up in
Patience and in
You have shown in me
Memories of happy times
Overflow in my mind
Held me tight
Even when I pushed
Rest assure you were there
Inside of Card:
I wrote the words on the front last year while I was supervising a small group of students in the art room. When the day ended I took it with me and placed it above the visor in my car figuring I had several day to finish it. The card has sat there since then; time escaped me and I ended up buying a card instead. I it pulled down a couple of months ago and read over the words that still ring true, not an easy task through the tears.
Anyway, I figured it was time to finish it. So I put my meager artistic ability to work on the front. The magnolia tree already bloomed this year; it has always amazed me how with in a breath they bloom and then vanish. Their smell was intoxicating as usual and I couldn’t help but think of you and how much you use to enjoy the fleeting blooms.
I just wanted to tell you that I miss you and I love you.
Happy Mother’s Day!!
