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!
