For My Mom

Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday.  My creations for today and tomorrow are all dedicated to my mom.  She is one of my heroes.  Mom lived through the depression, served as a lieutenant in the Army Nurse Corp in World War II and is still going strong although in a nursing home.  I'd love to wish my mom and all the mothers reading my post a very happy Mother's Day this Sunday.
