A bit nervous about this one. I hope it has the effect for readers that I intend. The connection between mother and daighter, even after Mom dies & especially when daughter becomes a mother, reminds me of the wrenching pain and sheer, overwhelming joy of childbirth--fragile and fiery. I wanted to honor my mom this year by being truthful and sharing with her (not that she's online from heaven!) the depth of my feeling still and highlight the futility and silliness of my attemptps to pretend her being gone really doesn't affect me anymore.
