My Granddaughter – Elizabeth An- Feb. 2000

Tomorrow is the big day!  Everyone is getting ready to celebrate and pay tribute to that very special person in their life..their Moms.  And, this is a good thing, this is the way it should be.

But, I want to celebrate Mother’s Day in a different way.  I want to turn the tables, you might say, and send out a special thank you to my daughter.

Years ago, my newborn daughter was placed in my arms..and a bond that was formed that day never weakened.  Over the years, she has been my rock, my confidant and my shoulder to cry on during tough times.  She is my biggest supporter, my constant inspiration and my best friend.

She held my hand during the tough times; she laughed with me during the silly times; and she comforted me during times of illness.  I owe her my life, my love and my thanks for being there when I needed her.

All my children are precious to me, but the bond my daughter is one I hold close and will treasure always.  I want to thank her for keeping that bond strong and sturdy.

But, most of all, I want to thank her for the special gift she gave me…the granddaughter that I love just as much as I do my daughter.  This was the greatest gift a child can give their mother and for that, I want to send her a simple Thank You from my heart and my wishes for a very Happy Mother’s Day.

  3. Beautiful post. I have the same sense of joy and connection with my daughter…and now my granddaughter, too.
    I remember an Italian neighbor who always said, “There are two kinds of women…those who have daughters, and those who don’t.” She believed there was something defining, challenging and strengthening about having a daughter that a woman didn’t get anywhere else.

  4. This is so sweet. 😀 Your granddaughter is beautiful. There is something special about us gals. I hope to have a little girl someday. Right now my house is male dominated. I need someone to sway the votes in my favor. 😀
