Happy Mother's Day

May 13, 2012

We all celebrate Mother's Day in different ways.

Some of us call or spend time with our own mothers, while some of us take the time to pamper ourselves for a job well done.

This year I'm taking Mother's Day to reflect back on both my triumphs and shortcomings as a mother.  To rememeber and cherish the delightful moments of motherhood that I have been blessed with, but also to consider how I might be a better mother to my two wonderful boys.

This morning I made the following layout--one mother's manifesto so to speak.

A Mother's Manifesto | Supplies: Sun Fun ArtPlay Palette by Anna Aspnes, Blossom Art Play Palette by Anna Aspnes, Warm Glows No. 2 by Anna Aspnes, Imperfect by Kitty Designs.

The journaling reads:

I am a mother and this is my manifesto:

To kiss your knee promptly whenever you fall.

To read to you each night before bed.

To keep you warm and fed and safe.

To slay the monsters that live under your bed.

To support your dreams, your goals and your ambitions.

To be there routing you on at every recital, game and program.

To love every part of you for all eternity.

And here is a little Mother's Day gift for all of you wonderful women out there:

A set of journalers that you can use to help you record what being a mother means to you--available in both PDF and PNG.

Happy Mother's Day
