Round and round she goes

I just love handmade cards.  I put pressure on myself to make them and if for some reason I don't get time and buy one, I feel guilty.  It is a bit crazy and I should give myself a break.  Moving right along...

I gave my Mum a card for Mother's Day, handmade, featuring some of Bean's artwork.  Just a sweet little splash of blue and green watercolour.  Mum adores it.  Then she astounded me by digging out a painting that I did when I was about the same age.  I am in awe!   It made me feel so connected, all of us, so part of something big - life.  And something small - us.  Life giving life.  To think that I am to Mum, what Bean is to me.  And I am a grown woman.  And Bean will be too one day.  It just blows my mind.  Lovely. 

Are you feeling in awe of the simple things?  I'd love to hear about them.
