The past two weeks have been very hectic for me and my family. My mother fell and broke her hip on Sunday April 22nd. Mom is only 74 but she has brittle bones and fast walking feet. It rained that Sunday and as my mother scurried into the daycare hall of her church, she forgot that wet shoes and shiny vinyl floors don’t mix.
Although,I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers I am the only sibling who lives close to my mother and father. So I had a lot of phone calls to make that day. I tried to keep the worry out of my voice as I passed along the bad news. My mother made that easy for me because, she had such a good attitude about her accident. I was able to tell my siblings that Mom was really impressed “how cute and buff the EMT’s were”. But she was also miffed because they had to cut off her her pants and she “only has two pair of pants good enough for church!” That little bit of mom-isms told my brothers and sisters everything they needed to know…That mom was hurting but, she was still her indomitable, unflappable self.
I wanted to make something that would make my mother smile but, also let her know, that she really was a strong woman whom I admire. So I tried my hand at my very first Magic Window card.
The inside of the card is stamped with a sentiment that reads “Everything will be fine in the end. If it isn’t fine, it isn’t the end”.
