Don’t let life RUFFLE your feathers.

The Simon Says: Spread Your Wings Monday Challenge inspired me to create a really special card for my mum. She is 84 years old, lives alone, 2000 kms away from me, and 2 weeks ago she had a fall and fractured several vertebrae in her lower spine. She needs to spend 8 weeks in hospital in a back brace and lying flat on her back. Over the last 2 weeks I have been wowed by her incredible courage and positivity. When thinking about her, the MFT lying down penguin image just flashed into my mind, and I just had to put her in an idyllic tropical setting-mum could well use a pina colada I suspect. The words are so true – You Go Girl! Don’t Let Life Ruffle Your Feathers-even at 84.
