Remembering our daughter this Memorial Day Weekend

To My Dear, Sweet, and Beautiful Angela...

It was a year ago today that I last heard your sweet voice and saw your beautiful smile. I cherish those last weeks spent with you because we had no way of knowing that God would perform the ultimate miracle of calling you home to rest safely in his arms ... forever.

Oh how my heart aches for you... I miss you dearly. You were my first born and I thank God for blessing me with you.  I thank Him for the short time we had together, and for allowing us to spend your final hours here on earth with you.

I think of you every day and will continue to think of you every day for the rest of my life.  I look forward to the day when we are reunited again as a family... until then, just know that you were and still are loved beyond measure.

I'll love you always... Mom

Happy Mother's Day

Card Front and Envelope
My Mother was admitted to the hospital a few days after the big finale of her 95th birthday celebration.  After her health improved, she was released to rehab.  Great news... she goes home tomorrow and she gets to spend Mother's Day in the comfort of her own home... there's no place like home.

The latest SUO Challenge #121 is to make a Mother's Day card or project; this card is for my mother.  After the new SU! catalog was revealed on line, I fell in love with a card pictured on page 26 ... I CASE'd it but  used my Honeycomb EF. Other SCS challenges for this card: WT530, SUO, WT528 Inside and Out.
