An Honest Conversation Story – and we’d love to hear more!

I recall a conversation with someone close about an honest conversation she had with her mother. She was in her early 40’s when her mother came to visit from overseas.

A kindness story from “a bit more kind” in Chicago

This post appeared on the Active Kindness blog yesterday. What a heart warming story! It shows the power of seeing our mothers with different eyes … and the power of our love and compassion. Enjoy! “My mother is a challenge for me. Somehow, no matter what idea I propose, she has to change it, take […]

“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”

Today is World Kindness Day (who knew!) and the perfect time to bring more kindness to our relationships – especially between daughters and mothers. My good friend and colleague Lorraine Marino is working on cultivating a (genuine) kindness movement. So if you feel genuinely moved to do so, consider 3-4 things you can contribute to […]

Our Mothers as Victims

Susan’s recent comment has made me think about the times when our mothers take on the victim role. When that happens we get hooked into either the role of hero or villain. A friend of mine’s mother was lamenting how cruel her niece was for putting her mother into a home. She cast her as […]
