* My daughters
I’m not sure how a mother can ever adequately describe her daughters to people. I became a mom at 19 and have basically grown up with them. I have an extremely close but different relationship with both of my daughters, probably because they are two very different people themselves. Like my mother, I have tried to instill in them good morals, values, ethics and the ability to think on their own. To have their own opinion’s and idea’s. Sometimes, I have regretted that line of thinking, but more often than not, I am proud beyond explanation. So please indulge me while I share my view of my daughters with you.
