Mother and Daughter Connection

September 14th, 2005 · 1 Comment

As women, our relationship with our Mothers usually sets the stage for us, continuing to effect us throughout our entire lives.  And if we have a strong, open and loving relationship with our mother, then we are truly blessed.

Often, though, there are things unsaid – words that could bring us closer to our mother and in the process, heal us.

Yvonne Devita, from Lipsticking, interviewed a woman with an extraordinary vision last week.  The woman’s name is Lisa Delman and she is the author of

Dear Mom I’ve Always Wanted You to Know…
Daughters Share Letters from the Heart

Check out Yvonne’s (writing as Jane) interview here.  VERY inspiring!

I have been blessed with a wonderful mother and I prize our relationship.

But this article, and the premise of the book, made me really think about my connection to Mum, and whether there is anything left unsaid between us – anything I really need to say to her NOW.  Or even anything I need to process about our relationship, even if it never gets shared.

I’m off to write a letter… with pen and paper as recommended by Lisa.   Oooh, and when I have finished one to Mum, I’m also going to write one to Mum-in-law (you see, in my life I have been doubly blessed!)  I recon by the time I’m done there will one box less tissues in this house.

What about you?

    Karen, thanks for this wonderful post. It’s just so true…we often miss the forest for the trees, so to speak. Who among us can’t stop and think: is there anything left unsaid between me and my Mom, or grandmom? Women are expected to communicate better than men…studies purport to show we are more verbal (and I believe we are) but…how often do we neglect the very lifeblood flowing in our veins?

    Letters from the Heart is a project that spoke to me… and Lisa was kind enough to be interviewed, so I could share it with all of you.

    Thank you again for sharing.
