Saturday Quote for the Day

"A mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary."
--Dorothy Canfield Fisher, Her Son's Wife


  1. Great quote. I'm trying to pull off this being a mom thing and I'm flying by the seat of my pants. You always seem to know just how to encourage me. Thanks. Just thought I'd share this experience with you

  2. Camille, It's so fascinating to contrast the Indian way and the American way, of raising kids. Independence is SO valued here . In India, kids (even after they're THIRTY!!) who move away, are made to feel guilty for being detached!! This is not on my family, but the culture in general, I think. --Deepa
