Thanks to Aneal for Starting a Son and Mother Conversation

By Val Boyko • January 19th, 2011

Sometimes an unexpected encounter with someone can bring to light fresh perspectives. That is what happened when I met a stranger called Aneal at Philadelphia Airport, when I was leaving for the Gambia with a small group of women.

Aneal overheard our discussion about Mother Whisperers and our own mother relationships. He introduced himself and shared his story. His mother had recently died and this had a huge impact on all aspects of his life. He had  given up his job and was traveling the world in order to find peace.

It felt like it was the first time he was able to share his story with someone. I felt honored to simply be there for him. It was very moving.

It made me realize that Marlene and I have much to offer everyone – not just daughters, when it comes to finding peace in our relationships with our mothers.

Aneal also asked “Why aren’t men invited to your site?” I asked myself “Why not?” and couldn’t come up with a good reason…. and so I offer an invitation to the men out there to join in on the Mother Whisperer journey.
