Mother’s Day Cards
Whenever my children give me presents, My favorite kind of gift from them is something homemade. When holidays roll around and they ask me what I want, I always tell them I want them to make me something. I don’t even care what it is. It can be a card, a picture, or some kind of craft–as long as they did it themselves. I treasure those kinds of gifts more than anything because the time when they’re young is so fleeting, and I want to have keepsakes from when they’re growing up. Since Mother’s Day is approaching, I recently went through some of the Mother’s Day cards and pictures my kids have given me over the years. They make me laugh and cry at the same time!
Ask For Homemade
This year when your own family asks you what you want for Mother’s Day, ask them to make you a card. I recently asked one of my daughters to watercolor some Mother’s Day cards for me. Watercolor is my favorite medium, and I love how it looks–especially painted flowers. Since Emily took some art classes at USU this year, we have a set of watercolors that we purchased. The cards she made are so pretty, but even if they weren’t as artistic as they are, I would still love them. It doesn’t matter about the skill level of your children or how artistic they are, just having something made by them is what’s important!
Happy Mother’s Day!
