And my mom should be happy, too!

There’s a saying that a mother is only as happy as her least happy child. Maybe it’s a cliché by now, but I still think there’s a lot of truth to that. We worry about the kid who’s struggling, no matter how old they are, and when our children are joyful, we feel it as well—again, no matter how old they are.

Social media sites provide the forums for us to keep up with our grown kids’ activities—whether they're across town, across the country, or across oceans—and these days parents and their offspring “befriend” each other through MySpace and Facebook. If you read my recent blog on technology, you know that my son, Christopher, will have no part of this “craze,” but my Courtney is a little more techn-savvy, and so it’s easier for me to keep up with her. (She’s a total trip—here’s some required reading for the uninitiated. Warning: You’ll pee your pants from laughing.)

The other day I came across this picture of my precious angel and her boyfriend on her Facebook site.

I swear, I all but dropped to the ground and thanked God above when I saw this. Maybe it’s just me, but I think their compatibility and the love they have for each other jumps off the screen. Yay—what more can we ask for our adult children than to be totally, crazy in love?

Really, what would make a mother happier than that?

First. You and your daughter look so much alike! Gorgeous women. And she is hilarious. Mmmm wonder who she could take after.

I so agree they look so incredily smitten. Look at her smile and his grin - its like the proverbial Cheshire cat. I love a bit of happiness I have to say. Bring it on!

It's funny that everyone says we look alike. Sometimes I see it and sometimes I don't. Not to mention she's 5'10" and I'm just under 5'5"!

She sure is a beautiful, free spirit, my little hippie girl!
