Beautiful post. I very much admire anyone that can undergo a career change in their life. That is not an easy thing to do.
Kudos to Pam, and to you also for having reared such a caring person, to be willing to take in unwanted strays. I think we all know where she got her big heart.

prof en retraite said...

Oh Ann...Pam sounds like she takes after her mom! I understand how tough it can be to raise a daughter alone and to have her own house, too! Quite an accomplishment!She has sparkling personality that shines right through her photos! Thanks for sharing...Debbie

Hello Mary Lou said...

Joy said...

Ann, what a special tribute to your daughter. I know it must make her feel so good to see her mom writing such a lovely post about her.

Bo said...

Ann, I can see why she'd be such a success in real estate...that smile of hers would make you a friend right away! ;-) Bo

She is beautiful. You must be so proud of her.
I wanted to THANK YOU so much for adding us to your blog to pray for my sweet friend. I just heard they will be taking her to another hospital. She has lupus and they think she needs to be some where, where they can help her better. I will be adding an update on my blog when I know more. Thanks so much again for reaching out for prayers for her.

I hope your daughter sees this. You have every right to be proud of this young lady who became such a self sufficient woman. Good for her and good for you for teaching her.

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Ann, You daughter is very pretty. I can see why you'd be proud of her. Mothers and daughters don't always...see eye to eye. We're too much alike. But, that doesn't change our love for each other. I do understand.
Hugs, Terrie

How sweet! I could feel the love just reading your words! You know, it is very important for daughters to know that their mothers are proud of them! We need to hear that at any age!
