A Mother to be Proud Of
Today is Mother's Day and I just wanted to tell my daughter, Tiffany how proud I am of the mother she is to our granddaughter, KC. Tif has always been a person who thought of others even before herself and I'm seeing her raise her daughter with that same selfless devotion.
When Tif was a little girl, I wondered what sort of mother she would be. I find she is raising KC much as we raised her... with a great deal of love and firmness.
Tif has used every opportunity to provide KC with a variety of situations from trips to museums, zoos, shows, libraries to lots of play dates with friends to ensure that her knowledge of the world develops as much as she can absorb it.
Most importantly I've seen Tif exert firmness and discipline so that KC can be secure in knowing her mom has things under control. I just marvel at Tif's patience and unwavering love. Much of her daughter's care is left to her since her husband is often away on business. With all this taking her attention, she still makes sure we know she is thinking of us with calls, e-mails, thoughtful presents and Skype webcam calls. My mother says we are certainly blessed and on this special day I just wanted to wish Tiffany a very special Mother's Day. You make us proud, Tif!
