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.
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?
