Yes, to all these things, and as I ponder Mother's Day, both as a daughter who misses her mother and as a mother myself, I can honestly say to my Mama and my daughter - how proud I am of both of you, and me too! Someday, my daughter will look at this essay from the other side of the coin, as a mother, and I know that she will say yes to all these things too. Because my mother is holding her mother's hand on the one side and mine on the other, and I'm holding my daughter's hand, and her hand is outstretched into the future. We are holding hands into infinity in both directions. Happy Mother's Day to all mothers!
