Forget the tiara ~ Diana remembered

Princess Diana would have turned 50 this month. Newsweek published a story by Tina Brown speculating on Diana's life in 2011, had she lived.  

She was a young, unsuspecting bride, when she married Charles in 1981. And for all the royal pageantry, her life was not a happily-ever-after story.

 Except for her sons. Every photo of Diana with William and Harry tells a story of a devoted mother with happy children; a young woman striving to teach values of compassion and commitment.

 Forget the tiara and title, Diana's legacy to the world is two wonderful young children. And that is every mother's happily-ever-after.
