Some of you may know that growing up, I was not particularly close with my mother. All that hurt was re-ignited when I saw what the theme of the challenge was going to be this month. I put off creating the layout for several weeks, in fact, not sure where I would begin. When I finally sat down to create something this is what I came up with. This photo of my 1st birthday is one of the very few I have of myself and my mother together, I chose it because it's one where she looks happiest.

Here is the same photo redone on a new, more meaningful, more 'me' layout.
|Sorry that the quality looks poor, but the colours really are that muted and soft (Crate Paper)|
I hope that if you have a similar story of hurt and disappointment regarding your childhood and/or relationship with your mother that you have found some solace here today. I pray that you may know the love of your Father, and hear the calling He has on you to come to Him, allowing Him into the dark places to bring healing and restoration. You just never know the depth of peace that awaits you on the other side.
You can see what the rest of the design team did with this challenge, and get all the details on this month's gracious sponsor over here.
As schedules would have it, I am also up over at Let's Capture Our Memories today.
Have a blessed day friends. Pin It
