Cherishing YAWNS...

It's been a long time since I've played with a color challenge.  Today over on SplitcoastStampers, the colors were black, limeade, and poppy.  And I must admit they made me think of the hues of sherbet.
I've had this beauty from Stamp Francisco inked and waiting for a spell.  I knew I wanted to use the amusing Bette Midler quote:  Cherish forever what makes you unique. Cuz you're really a YAWN if

What do you think makes U unique...one of a kind, remarkable, unusual?  I've thought about this in many ways throughout my life and pondered about when family members who knew me as a child and growing into a women died...would the essence of who I am continue.  My sons know me as their mom, but can only relate to my stories about times 'BC' (before children).  And my husband has a window into me that didn't begin until well into my 30's.

As Shakespeare said so well...through Polonius, in Hamlet, "to thine own self be true".  Keep on remembering and pondering and telling your stories...look in the mirror and truly cherish the woman looking back at you.

Sue, that quote is so awesome. I need to share it with my DD who strives to have the coolest quotes and commets on Facebook. The funny thing is that the quote is sooooo true. People don't realize it but it is - do we learn this more as we age? I am guessing so. Love the image. Amazing card from an Amazing woman! Hugz.
