judy garland and lisa minnelliWhether we have the worst or best of mothers, somewhere in between,  they all give us a legacy. If it was not for them then we wouldn’t be who we are today. Jodie Toohey highlights the legacy of 6 famous mothers and daughters:

Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth I (Tudor queens); Marie Curie and Eva Curie (cancer pioneers); Laura Ingalls Wilder and Rose Wilder Lane (“Little House” and writers): Joan Crawford and Christina Crawford (“Mommie Dearest“); Lena Horne and Gail Lumet Buckley; Judy Garland and Liza Minelli.

She also asks for us to take a moment to reflect on our own mother’s or even our grandmother’s story.
Reflect upon how her story can inspire our endeavors or how we can or have capitalized on her legacy.

Nice one Jodie!

It’s a good exercise for all of us.
