"Insight or aha! moment. What was your epiphany of the year?"
OK here goes my best attempt at describing the relationship I have with the two most important women in my life.
I am not my Mother.
I am not my Daughter.
But, I'll be double damned if we don't share major traits that alternately make me feel like a 92 year old and a 21 year old, spinning around like a top out of control.
I love them both with all my heart. I admire their accomplishments. I cry for their pain. I cheer their victories whether significant or small.
The Aha! you ask? I will celebrate the people they are while accepting the things I wish were different about them. For in the end, the things I wish were different about them are the same things I wish were different about me.
