Today marks my baby girl's 5th year on this earth with me. Most would call today her birthday. Yet, am I not the one who birthed her? Most mothers spend the day celebrating the child and exclude themselves. Were we not the ones whom carried these small creations ourselves? Our breath their breath, our food their food and so on? We totally separate ourselves from OURSELVES just because our creation is no longer suckling the teet or kicking around in our womb.
So today, I'm celebrating my baby's BORNday and my BIRTHday. We will celebrate together. This is no competition, we are celebrating a work of magic.
There are so many women who have been forced into some one-sided cold war with their mothers since they can remember. Their mothers look at them as a competitor and not their creation. They forget that their daughter is their legacy, their live on. Maybe if we started celebrating together, with our mothers; with our daughters, there could be some form of peace.
Now, I'm not saying this is a fix all, I know better. I am saying, if you're healed enough to take this step, or if you have a great relationship with your mother and/daughter, give this a try.
