Flowers, candy and breakfast in bed … well, they’re all very well and good but I prefer a handmade card! Believe it or not, the artist of the above card is only twelve years old! Miss Audrey Gould, artist, actress, dancer, and just about anything she sets her mind to be.
This is a bittersweet day for those of us who’ve lost mothers over the past few years. Whether or not you were close to your mother, it’s like losing an anchor.

A very happy Mother’s Day to you!
That’s a beautiful card!
And yes, for those of us who have lost our mothers it’s a difficult day.
We can make it a day of remembrance. ❤️
I know how you feel. My mother’s been gone for decades and I still feel a little unanchored in this world.
Boy, I can sure see you in your Mom. Duke
So beautiful 💜💜💜
Something about the woman on the right’s curve of her upper lip, like she’s always on the verge of teasing you, testing your thresholds. Taunting.
Actually the girl on the right got married right after high school and was a very happy housewife until she died!
Sorry, I meant the left girl. I’m dumbadexterous.
Beautiful homemade card. These days, my favorite gift is a phone call. Happy Mother’s Day.
So true – nothing beats a phone call!
Lovely address to another side of Mother’s Day that many of us deal with, Jan. Lovely card and flowers and plants and mothers photo.
Thx Jet. Other than the residual sadness it was a lovely day to be outside!
I agree…and someone inherited her grandmother’s talent!
I think she’s more talented !
Hi Jan, my mother has suddenly become older and frailer over the past six months. It is sad to watch parents getting really old. My husband’s grandmother died last night, aged 101.
So sorry for your loss. Yes we do get more fragile as we age, sigh.
Anchors they were indeed. And those were very nice photos… 🙏🏻
I do miss my mom!
I love the card. I’m not a mom, but it’s a great card for a mom.
Happy Belated Mother’s Day!
OH! The flowers are gorgeous!
