Chicken Soup for the Soul the Magic of Mothers and Daughters

The bond between mothers and daughters can not be denied.  Anyone who has lived the mother - daughter relationship knows there are ebbs and tides.  The ties that bind us can be fragile and wispy or as strong as anchor chain, but we are always connected.  My friends who are close to their mothers talk every day and share every moment - and even my friends who are not still seem to have their mother in the forefront of their minds quite often.

I have no daughters, but I definitely have a mother - and if she isn't thinking about her children, she's thinking about her grandchildren.

Somehow we both survived my teenaged years, when somehow, I was way smarter than she was.  (When I got married and had children, she miraculously became smart again.)  She's always been there, and I have always known I could count on her.

As I read this edition of Chicken Soup for the Soul, I enjoyed the stories, related to quite a few, and even wondered a time or two what it must be like to have a daughter.

The book is broken into ten sections:
  • A Daughter's Love
  • Rites of Passage
  • A Mother's Love
  • The Face in the Mirror
  • Family by Choice
  • Away We Go!
  • Learning From Each Other
  • Healing and SEcond Chances
  • What Goes Around Comes Around
  • Dreams Fulfilled
It is a sweet collection that both moms and daughters will enjoy.
