Dragon Momma Love

Peanut -

If someone - an alien, perhaps - visited this planet and asked me to define, describe "love" I would point them to two items.  First, a picture of you with your clear, blue eyes, knowing little grin, expressive eyebrows and sunshine aura.  Second, this Op Ed from the New York Times titled, "Notes From a Dragon Mom."

Sometimes the words of others are just too perfect.  Too beautiful.  I have nothing to add, nothing to contribute.  Just awe, appreciation, and the overwhelming desire to tell this Dragon Mom, "Thank you."

This is pure love captured in the written form.  An almost impossible task, but so well done.  I read this and am incredibly thankful for the love lessons I learned from you, Peanut.  I am thankful for 500 joyful, perfect days.  I am thankful for all the blessings I was lucky enough to receive as your Momma.  I am thankful for you.

Sending you Dragon Momma Love - powerful, fierce, relentless - to the moon and back.

- Momma
