Tiger Cub


“So this is what I will do. I will gather together my past and look. I will see a thing that has already happened. the pain that cut my spirit loose. I will hold that pain in my hand until it becomes hard and shiny, more clear. And then my fierceness can come back, my golden side, my black side. I will use this sharp pain to penetrate my daughter’s tough skin and cut her tiger spirit loose. She will fight me, because this is the nature of two tigers. But I will win and give her my spirit, because this is the way a mother loves her daughter.”  -Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club

Love you so much sweet pea!

      Dora, I feel quite the same about you my clever crafty friend! “That’s not a dishtowel it’s a fashionable apron, of course!” Anything’s possible at Mi Casita, Mi Ranchito. xoxo

    (As you may see by the copious notifications that you are receiving that I’m playing a little game of catch-up again. I promise not to bombard you with too many comments.)

    What a perfect quote to go along with the photo, a tender mother/daughter moment.
