I enjoyed reading your story and the way you put everything together.
A good and powerful story--strong mothers raised strong daughters. I grew apart with daughter and mother during teen years---we fought civil war, lol!
No more fighting. Now, I call my mom once a week and my daughter calls me twice per week. We spent an hour or more on phone just listening, supporting, and understanding each other.
We have a respectful relationship, but we're not best friends. My mom calls me out on my BS. And I give my daughter my diluted view when she asks for it.
Well done and be happy!
