Tiger Mom

Tiger and Cubs

Tiger and Cubs

The term “Tiger Mom” has taken on a whole new meaning recently, the moms that push and prod their children to excel at everything.

But, I like what this photo says about a tiger mom, i.e. the original meaning: loving, nurturing and protective.  Above all, protective.  She will do anything to protect her cubs, and you don’t want to be on the receiving end of her wrath.

Can you find the second cub in this photo?  The photo was taken nine years ago, and I’ve forgotten where the second cub is hiding — perhaps partially hidden behind its sibling.  Not a bad picture, taken through glass, but you can see a discolored halo around the mom’s face, probably a smear on the glass from some snot-nosed kid … or cub.

Thought for the Day:  The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.                                                                                                                                           G.K. Chesterton
