Here is the artwork I created last week as part of the card I made for our daughter Holly’s birthday today. A big day in the life of our family – 21 years of parenthood for me & my husband today too. Judging from the lovely people Holly & Tom have become, I think we have done a pretty good job!
All of us are wiped out today. Me from just being out in the real world yesterday, and Holly, well, she has not yet emerged from her bedroom yet after a BIG night out celebrating with her friends, as all good 21 year olds do. Congrats to her!
And of course the flowers on my card were all selected for their special meanings. What mother would not wish her daughter all of the following?:
In the language of flowers (L-R)
Sunflower – loyalty, adoration, devotion
Kangaroo Paw – resilience
Agapanthus – the flower of love
Tulip – perfect happiness
Cosmos – peacefulness, love, modesty
Morning Glory – love, affection
Daffodil – faith, honesty, truth, respect
Iris – wisdom, beauty
Azalea – femininity, take care of yourself for me
Gardenia – joy, purity
Marigold – courage, creativity
Jasmine – cheerfulness, grace, elegance
Here’s to Holly and her ongoing adventures in her one wild and precious life! And as I said to her, “Don’t forget you have your two special angels, Martha and Lou, up in heaven always looking over you, and happy to help you along – just ask, and they are so there! Always know that the universe is supporting you and that everything always works out well in the end, even though it sometimes takes a rocky road to get there. It is all good!”
Really, with Martha as her godmother, how can she go wrong?!
We are ALL supported every day. All is well!
