Things my mother taught me

Halliday, Claire2016
How did you become the person you are today? Lessons learned from the first key person in our lives, our mother, can set the course for the lives we will lead. A mother can be nurturing, inspiring, difficult; she guides us in our growth, she teaches us about the world. And all the while she is her own person. For everyone, that critical relationship, whether it is positive and loving or scarred with bitterness, leaves a huge impression. Within these pages are mature reflections on how a mother shapes, nurtures, and complicates a life. Reflections on how each of these prominent people would not be who they are today if it werent for this unique relationship. These are stories of fondness, gratitude, respect and regret. They are insights into an area of human experience where small moments can have a large and lasting impact.
