Mothers Day. It can make you happy, you found the perfect gift. It can make you sad, you miss her or it can complete you, you are one. I’m a mom and after collecting drawings, crafts, homemade cards and dust collectors over the past 18 years I realize how much more than ever I treasure the collection. The newer tokens of affection reflect who I am more as a person than just mom. The transformation is interesting and a little melancholy too. I’m realizing the simpler version of me is slipping away and for that reason I really hope I get a homemade card this year!

Happy Mothers Day.
