This is actually a picture of my mother having a tea party with my daughter. It is a beautiful illustration of what makes her so wonderful. There is no way I could put into words why I love her. She taught us respect and love and trust by example. She knew when to hold us close and when to step back and let us have our space. She always believed in us, even when we were having a hard time believing in ourselves. And she never turned down an invitation to a tea party.
