The first voice we hear is
our mothers when we are in her womb.
The moment daughters are born
we belong to our mothers.
From the first time mothers hold
their daughters in their arms,
looking down on their newborn
faces, daughters capture their
hearts and souls. As mothers
they have so many lessons to
teach their daughters and
as daughters we have so many
lessons to learn from our mothers.
As little girls, we always watch
what our mothers do. If daughters
have great mothers, when they
grow up; daughters want to be
just like them when they
become mothers. But my mother
said, “No. Don’t be like me when
you become a mother. Be a better
and stronger mother than I am.”
I don’t think that’s possible.
My mother’s advise is,
“Whether you have sons or daughters
you need to learn how to forgive
because your kids are going to do
things that you don’t approve of or like.
But if you have a daughter, let her dream
and encourage her to be anything
she wants to be.”
