Mother is a little girl who trod my path before me;
Just a bigger, wiser little girl who ran ahead-
Bigger, wiser, stronger girl who always watches o'er me,
One who knows the pitfalls in the rugged road I tread.

Mother is a playmate who will always treat me kindly-
Playmate who will  yield me what true happiness demands.
She will never let my feet stray into brambles blindly-
Mother's just a bigger little girl that understands.

Mother is an older little playmate who'll befriend me-
Yesteryear she traveled in the path that's mine today.
Never need I fear a foe from which she might defend me-
Faithful little pal who ran ahead and learned the way.

Such a beautiful little poem... it speaks to my heart. It is of course for my mama..who's birthday is today. Whom I miss so much..wishing I could tell her in person Happy Birthday.

I hope she likes this card...I made it with her in mind. Had such a great time coaxing it into existence...

Lots of lovely layers...a handmade stick pin upturned; made by my talented blog buddy Stella..such a sweet gift that she sent to me.

It is soft and sweet just like my mama...and of course one of a kind.
Happy Birthday mom, wish I were with you all to celebrate.
Sending love, as always, across the miles.
All my love,
Becks XO
