One of my dearest memories of my mother is when I had polio at 6. I was kept at home in bed, with no one but immediate family entering the house. Mother entertained a bed-ridden 6-year-old for 8 months! Only a mother could have done it.
The fonts I used were Elfring Elite and Manuscript Wide. The poem is The Child's Quest by Frances Shaw.
Oh, my, this layout speaks directly to me! Great scrapping of emotion. I simply 'ache' for this little girl. Could be the wistful look.. the lack of coloring.. don't know exactly what/how to describe my reaction to it. Just love it!
What an endearing ode to your Mother who really had to surpassed mountains to nurse you through your polio illness. I hope that your results from that illness were not too severe. Love your fabulous journaling and that so touching poem.
