I Have 2 Daughters............

My 2 adult daughters know how much I want them to succeed.  We recently buried the matriarchs of our family.  My mother passed away a year ago last July from Alzheimers, at 63 yrs. old  and we buried my 94 yr. old grandma last weekend.  It is a very trying time, however, we pulled together, loved each other..cried on each other's shoulder and gave ourselves personal time to grieve.

My one purpose as a mother in this life is to see that I have appropriately given my daughters the skills it takes to thrive and succeed in this world, with or God forbid...without me.

I don't know if I've yet obtained being convinced, that I have done that.  I do know I've given that purpose everything I have, determiniation, faith, encouragement, love, understanding, patience and I have to let go and pray their protection.  Trust that what is out of my control is definitely...to their advantage, in decision making accomplishments, in the works.  :)

Sorry for your recent loss. I know what you mean. My wish for my girls is make smart decisions and to be happy. My girls are 18 and 21 now and they have so far chosen the hard road but all in all they are smart and some what happy.
