Life is a Balancing Act

Most of you who will see this are women.  You are probably a wife, a mother, maybe work outside the home.  It is a balancing act, isn't it?  When my children were young, I was given some great advice that I will pass on to you :  your life as a woman is like a three legged stool.  You are you,  a wife,  a mom, .  Don't let any one of the legs get too long or you will be no good as a stool.  If you put all your energy into being a mom and forget about  your husband or yourself, your life will be out of balance.  You can apply this to any three parts of your life so if you aren't married or if you don't have children, you can still use this analogy.  Something to think about.
Okay, on to the card.  The digital is a new one by Designed2Delight.  Sentiment is by Clear Dollar Stamps.
I'm sorry the photo is not very good.  It is so cloudy outside, I could not get the white to look white even after 10 tries.  I put dew drops on the spots on the bug backs.  Wish that would show up better too.
