April Showers

This month over on the Verve Blog the challenge is called "April Showers Bring May Flowers"...what a wonderful challenge!
This month my life has a lot to do with "April Showers"...and I can't wait to see those flowers!
My mother fell ill at the begging of April and she has been in and out of the hospital twice this month and as we speak she is still in... I am the primary caregiver and I've been up and down and in and out of hospitals and doctors offices. Thank God the problem was found today and fixed...her heart needed a tune up :) Praise God for his wonderful miracles!
During the sleepless nights I found myself diving into my card making and it brought me so much joy and peace :) I never knew I loved making cards so much and how therapeutic it has been for me, it has helped me keep my sanity. My mother is my inspiration, I am who I am today because of her...If I am ever half of the woman of God she is...I have indeed accomplished something in my life. God gave me a loving, selfless mother, and I am so thankful for her.
I wanted to make something for my mom, something beautiful that would bring joy to her heart :) and here is my creation for this months dare...
 It's bright and cheery...and it's the perfect sentiment for her...because she ALWAYS makes me smile :)

 i love you mom :)
