Mom´s Day in Sweden

Tomorrow is Mom´s Day in Sweden. My Mom passed away 8th of february 2001.  She would have been 91 years old if she still had been alive.  I was thinking of her while making this tile for Mom´s day. We celebrate it tomorrow in Sweden. My mom was special. As every mom is in this world. She came to Sweden as a refugee from Finland during World War II. My father and she fell in love and that´s why I exist. She raised 8 children in a very small village on the countryside in North of Sweden!  I loved her and I miss her today. She was a strong woman and she cared about people. Love and solidarity are the two words I associate with her. I never doubted in her love for me or the rest of the family, including cats and dogs.As I think of her I am filled with gratitude and I will always remember her in my heart. This is for her:



The lovely m-string is from Adele Bruno´s challenge celebrating Mom´s Day in the States and a big part of the rest of the world. I used it together with a zen-gem, Fassett (Lynn Shelton Mead), Beadlines (Margaret Bremner) and Ellish. Here is an old picture (scanned) of my Mom and Dad which I took 1974 outside our House.



With this I want to celebrate my beloved Mother and give the celebration on to all who are going to celebrate tomorrow! Don´t forget your Mothers! They are the reason why you excist!

This is a loving tribute to your mother and a beautiful tile for her. My mother died long ago, when I was 23 and I still regret that I did not have the change to know her as an adult.

Very nice of you, to tell something about your mother with such sweet words. I loved reading it and the tile you have made, dedicated to her is beautiful. In Belgium Mother's day is the 15 th. of August.
