Reach for the stars.......

Well another Monday here so that means it's time for my #docraftsmonday post and also a very proud mum post.....
Kris, who a lot of you will know, is my son. He is a super son and I am soooo proud of him I could burst. I normally keep my blog for all my crafty things but today I wanted to dedicate my post to Kris.
He has not always had it easy, he has me for a mum for a start! lol..... but really, that has not always been easy for him as I have had illness darken my door a lot over the past few years and since he was 4 he has had to help me with a lot of things..... So thank you Kris for always being there and for being like a shining light for me when things were dark.
His Dad died 5 years ago and then Kris developed alopecia. Again, he faced the world bravely and made sure I was always doing ok.
So this week it's all about him, today is his first official day at his new job. A job that I think he will be amazing at and a job where he can really make a difference....
Kris left school and went straight into mechanics..... now, to say his place of employment was awful is an understatement, but he stuck it out for 7 years and in fairness he made some good friends and worked with some good people along the way. But now it's time for a new adventure......
So good luck Kris.... I think you will be a fantastic carer.
He really is one of the very best....

Here is the card I made for Kris......

Have a great bank holiday Monday and remember to share your #docraftsmonday posts on fb or twitter with us.
