Unconsciously I think I often ask myself that question even though as a teenager I often rebelled against the answers or looks, of my Mom, that I got.
It sounds very cliche but the older I get I feel that I am giving the same looks my Mom gave and I can hear myself giving the same answers she used to give me. Some reactions my mother used to give because of new insights we totally banned from our brains (such as all sayings that point out to superstition or self inflicted curses).
I now know there is NO COINCIDENCE that she is my Mother and that all I had to learn from her she made sure I did! Maybe there are still somethings for her to pass on to me, they are all welcome!
I know also that there is no coincidence that I am the mother of my daughters. I have the task to pass on the knowledge of life I received and that which I acquired unto my kids.
God, I am so great-full for my MOM!
