Mother's Day Gratitude


This is my first Mother's Day without my mom. I made this card for my aunt. In the last two years of my mom's dementia I would sometime leave the nursing home in tears and often I would end up at my aunt's house. She seemed to know when I needed to talk about mom and when I wanted to talk about something completely different. I am very grateful to have her in my life.
