Aha! Moment of 2009

"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.


  1. This is so honest, Kate. It only makes sense that those closest to us are able to teach us the most about ourselves.

  2. haha half decent picture of me!!! This is cute :-D
