Cards for Troops Drive 2019 is almost done!

The Cards for Troops Drive 2019 is nearly finished. The close off date to receive cards for the Drive is September 30th, so I will be noting that on the Cards for Troops page on the 30th.

I want to send a HUGE thank you to all of you who have taken part in this year's Drive!

I will keep my eye on the Post Office for any more contributions before the 30th September, but so far we have had 24 contributors, many of whom have contributed more than once, and you have all been so very generous with the number of cards you have sent. Some of you have crafted with friends who have also contributed, and while I may not know all of your names, I am thanking you all too!

Next year's Drive will reopen in April, so hold any cards you are making till then. I'll let you know when it all starts again.

With gratitude

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all who mother!

You sure don't have to be a birth mother to be motherly. Mothering adds so much to people's lives and is one of the main stitches in the tapestry of our society.

If your Mum still lives, I'm sure you have already made your Mother a handmade card or flowers or a gift box or something to make her feel special.

I am feeling wistful and a little sad, but also very grateful that I had the Mother I did, as I face this first Mother's Day without her. She was steadfastly strong, beautiful, and loved us children fiercely.

My children help me so much with feeling loved today.

If you ever wondered where the idea of Mother's Day came from, follow the link below to find out a little about that.

I'll leave you with a poem I received today about Mothers from my church:

A Mother's Gift

When God made Mothers,
He took much care,
To gift their hearts
with His love so rare.
Their children are
Their greatest prize.
You can see His love
In any Mother's eyes.

Love, love is the gift
to their children,
their hearts love lift.
Warm, caring, giving love
that helps them grow
to rise above.

Thank you Mothers
for all you give.
To help us grow
and help us live.
We will love you from
now to evermore.
Our Mothers, our Moms,
for whom we truly adore.

Happy Mother's Day
