“Mothers and Daughters”

I think mothers and daughters have the most difficult relationship…….there is that adage…….A son is a son til he takes him a wife……a daughter is a daughter for the rest of her life…….

It’s true……..daughters seek to find independence and branch out on their own paths……becoming mothers themselves……

But just like scientists have found mother trees are connected to children in the forest by deep roots……so it is with daughters.

You learn from your mother…..even when you don’t realize it……it is like that root system of osmosis……you watch her cooking, you watch her sewing, you watch the things she does in her spare time………and these things are sucked up into your system, like the celery stalk science experiment of elementary school.

Oh, you may rebel against the rules…….spread your roots a little to the east or west or north or south……but sooner or later, in times of drought or frigid winters…..you seek the mother root again…….to nourish and hold you up amidst the storm.

When you lose your mother, you lose that anchor…….that maternal root.   You know you are out there…….anxiously fearing  that drought or cold spell……And if you have children of your own, you realize you have become that strong, gnarled, withered root who will nourish all her children until  all nourishment is depleted.

This song is one of my favorites……..I think if you have lost a mother, it holds special meaning……..for we are all waiting………

Waiting to touch roots again……………..<3

Mother’s Day Blessings,
