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!

    1. Thank you Jeanette! You understand this quote on motherhood as well, getting ready to set one loose yourself. You must be so proud. Way to go sister!


    1. 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


  1. (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.


    1. Christopher, you are never a bother and are always most welcome! what do you think of the new layout? I’m still fiddling around with it. I hope you’re doing great Mr. Malone!
