With Mother’s Day on the horizon have you thought about your mother? What was she like when you were growing up?
* What was her parenting style… strict, laissez-faire? * What did you like to do with her? * Did you confide in her? * How did she discipline? * What are your favorite memories? * How was she, in your eyes, with your father? * How will you honor her? * Are you a mother? * How would your child[ren[ describe you? * Do you say/do things you swore you wouldn’t – because your mother did ? * How do you think your child[ren] will quote you? * What memories would you hope they have? * Do you see your mother differently now that you are one? * Do you consciously emulate her ? * Do you appreciate how hard – and joyful -it is to mother?
We are all our mothers, to some degree. We are all human. Let your mother know how much you appreciate her now that you know what a struggle it is and also how wonderful…to be a mother.
