When I pass away – and even before then – I hope my daughters will be able to channel me with:
- “I love you.”
- “You are SO smart!”
- “You are beautiful.”
- “I don’t agree with your choice (career, shampoo, spouse/boyfriend, moving, parenting - whatever) but it is your choice and I approve of YOU no matter what.”
- “I’m sorry. What can I do to make it up to you?”
- “Thank you.”
- “Be kind to your sister.”
- “Have fun!”
- “I am so proud of you.”
In one way or another, I learned these from my own mother.
Rest in peace, Mom.
