Happy Mother's Day!

Image from Free Pretty Things for You
I hope that all of the ladies I know will have a very happy Mother's Day tomorrow!  I think that we need to celebrate all ladies on this special day, because even though some may not have borne children of our own, we all have had opportunities to nurture others in one way or another.  I liked what my friend Stephanie wrote in her Mother's Day post found here: "Whether you're a mother, a daughter, a sister, a wife, a grandmother, an aunt, or a friend, may this day be extra beautiful and special for you.  Let us celebrate in quiet gratitude that we are women of God."  I so agree with Stephanie's thought, and that is my heartfelt wish for each of you.  Do check out Stephanie's post; it is beautiful.

On a related note, I read another fantastic post concerning Hope When Mother’s Day is Hard, by Holley Gerth.  The lovely graphic below is by her as well.  I love this thought!

I'd also like to share a few of my favorite Mother's Day cards with you.  Some are vintage; others are favorite cards I've received.  
Love this quote from Louisa May Alcott
 I've mentioned in a  previous post how my youngest daughter took time to send me the above card in the midst of a cross-country move.  It's a favorite and I love the sentiment.  The gorgeous artwork is by Shelly Reeves Smith.
A Mother's Day beach picnic looks like fun!
Love the details in the picnic card above.
"My mom, my friend" -- love this!
As you can see, I scanned a snippet of the envelope along with this cute card above.  The flower stem and bow are actually made of ribbon.
"Just a note on Mother's Day" -- vintage card.
I like how the musical note looks as if it is made from lace or a paper doily. Very sweet.
This is a card my hubby and his siblings signed for their mom one year.
The pretty hydrangea card is one I received from my daughter and her hubby.
The artist is Marjolein Bastin, of course.  Her work is unmistakable.  
A card I gave to my own mother many years ago.  Sort of cute.
Hope you've enjoyed these cards and links and that you'll have a blessed Mother's Day!
