Happy Birthday, Nana!

Today would have been my beloved Nana's 95th birthday.  This year, she's celebrating with Jesus in Heaven.  I found myself really missing her even more than usual today.  And as silly as it may sound to some, I found myself wanting to make her a card.  I know I can't actually send this one, but I like to think that my Nana is looking down from Heaven.  I hope it made her smile and know how much I love and miss her.

There are several things special about this card.  First, the background is the Lord's Prayer (or the Our Father as my Nana used to call it).  My Nana taught me that prayer when I was a little girl, so I thought it was fitting that I included it on her card.  And the dragonfly is because ever since she passed, I have been seeing them everywhere.  Especially blue ones.

And yes, I did write on the inside.  But that is just between my Nana and me.

If you have a Grandmother who is still living, please call her today and let her know how much you love her.  Or even better, if she lives close enough, give her a great big hug.

I love you, Nana.  Forever and always.

Shelley - what a beautiful card. I know your Nana sees you and all of your beautiful art work. This is especially beautiful and I loved the fact that I knew what was so "special" about it. Your Nana certainly has a wonderful granddaughter and I know she knew that the moment you took your first breath. All of my "grands" are gone now but it makes me appreciate what Max has with his now even more. Maybe, someday, mine will know me...
