Needed a release of emotions and WHAT BETTER WAY!

After being in the room the other day when they called the CPR on my mother, I need a release to tell her just how much she meant to me and scrapbooking helps me deal with stress (most times unless under pressure to finish a layout!!! LOL) so I did the layout which is a wonderful sketch by Cut Cardstock own NORMA KENNEDY!!
I am in love with Cardstock by Cut cardstock!! the colors are just wonderful!
Anyways my mother is doing better but today the are taking out the nasal feeding tube and doing surgery to put in a gtube (stomack feeding tube) since the nasal one has caused a sinus infection. SO please pray today! THANKS again! I love you all and totally believe that it is the prayers holding her up. I am trusting in my Savior and I know "His grace is sufficient"

Here is the Journaling:
These past days have been rough and I want you to know just how much I love you! I am so thankful you are my mother but also my best friend. I have enjoyed our times painting together and our times spent researching family but most of all just the time together. I love how you show so much love to my grandchildren. They are blessed to know you. You have taught me so many special things. Even the value of the old dishes we collect. When I saw this paper I immediately thought of your china and I even used a piece of it to trim the green cardstock! My love for you and respect for you grows deeper every day! I am so thankful that God gave me more days with you!

SusieQ - That is beyond precious. I'll bet your Mom cries when she reads it. Speaking as a mother, I don't believe there is any relationship more profound than that of mother and child. I'm so thankful for every extra day you can have your Mom with you!! Prayers and thoughts with all of you in the days ahead!

What a beautiful and heart felt layout to your Mom. I wish I could have done something like for my Mom, she passed away suddenly almost 3 years ago and I still miss her terrible. I am continuing to pray for you and your family. Big Hug to you honey, I know you need it!
