A Congratulatory Visit

My daughter, Shauna, has recently been given a promotion to a very responsible position. After a few hectic weeks, she made some time for us to take the kids in for a short visit.

We came bearing gifts that the kids had made and flowers.



We all put notes in with the flowers, which Shauna read carefully. Danica was very clever and creative with hers. I can't remember exactly what she wrote, but she made a play on General Manager and wrote something to the effect that she'd always been a GM, or Greatest Mother. Smart kid, that Danica.


Meanwhile, I took a photo of the view from her office ...


... and Sue took a moment to relax and enjoy the proceedings.


Then it was off to lunch.




It wasn't a long visit, but it was a very nice one and a nice celebration for a lady who has done very well in her job.

Congratulations to your daughter Shauna. If her children are anything to go by, she will be great as a general manager (if I understand correctly that that's what she's become).

AC--I love all the photos--a photo story. But I particularly like the one of Sue sitting taking it all in. Her eyes show her love, her joy in seeing her daughter be successful in life, in love and in work.
