"Every family is marked by the struggles of the generation before...."
it's about the unique relationships
mothers & daughters share.
From a daughter's (my) perspective:
"In the end" you are (or at least I was!) challenged to
well that....maybe you (I) don't know the whole story ...
the reason behind why your (my) mom always did "this"
or acted/reacted like "that"...
no matter how unlikely it may seem,
it was because
she loved you (me)
tho' not perfectly...because she was human.
And she didn't know what else to do
her mother loved her
just as dearly -
tho' not perfectly .... because she was human too.
And so on
- and so on -
back thru time and circumstances.
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
I John 4:18
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
According to I Corinthians 13, Love always protects.
From a Mother's (my) perspective...
"in the end" you are (or at least I was!) challenged to consider
how your (my) reactions & responses to circumstances
at such a time as this,
tho' soon to be history...
will no doubt
"Generations will reap what I sow.
I can pass on the curse or a blessing...
to those I will never know".
