For those who know me, you may be sure that I am referencing a new foster or adoptive child. Not this time! This time, my new daughter is my son, Francis’, new wife.  She is wonderful and sweet and recently blew me away with the Mother’s Day Card she sent.  Separate from my son’s, she sent a beautifully designed Papyrus’ Mother’s Day Card with 3-D flowers and a lot of sentiment.  But the sentiment that was most important was what she wrote inside; “Thank you for being such a great mom and raising such a wonderful son!”  Isn’t it thoughtful?  I now officially have another “daughter” and she’s all grown up.  I didn’t have to  do a thing…

  37. HI!
    It seems so great to have the younger generation really appreciate what you do for them. It makes me think of my wife to be who has relatives in her family that think I am so great to them & her too. That is so special because they know that you have really put the time & effort into who & what you love so much. It takes a lot of dedication to become that special & know how to make others lives filled & enjoyable later on by what you teach your kids too. this is so neat. Love knowing the older generation can be loved when they have put their all into what matters! This is truly what we grow up for when older. Thanks for all your great comments & inspiring me with your posts!
