THE MOST COMPLICATED YET GREATEST RELATIONSHIP- MOMS

Well, my mom finished her radiation treatments in New York and went back to Florida this week. I know she was happy about going home, but we were both sad also, because we got to spend six weeks together. It’s funny how when you get older your mom becomes more of a friend than she is a mother figure. We shared a lot of things we would have not normally shared years ago. Yes, we fight like cats and dogs, but the beauty of a good mother/daughter relationship is no matter how bad we fight, or the not so nice words we said, the next day we are back to normal and the slate is clean, I find this much harder to do that with friends.

For the first time in my life I can really see my growth, as a person, through my relationship with my mom. I was able to be there for her 100% for the very first time in my life. When she got on that plane, I felt no guilt, no remorse or no wishing I had said or did something different. That was one of the best feelings in my life. I could tell that my mom trusted that I would be there for her and she could count on me which is so much growth for me. It’s a new role my life to have people in general look to me for answers and strength. My role was to always be the needy one. I like my new role in life, and I look forward to being there for other people. I get to do that a lot through the [Our Resolution] campaign. I look forward to the spring and to traveling again to meet people and to get a chance to make a difference in their lives.

My dog Tushy turned one this month and the poor guy just had his manly parts cut off. I really did not want to do it, but just in case the doctors are right and his chances for bad health are greater I thought it was best. He is such a friendly dog to children, adults and other PETS that I decided this year; we will get certified so Tushy can be a comfort dog. Eventually, we will visit people in hospitals, especially children to cheer them up. Tushy is a Maltese and is a non allergic dog and does not shed so he will be perfect.

Have a good week my friends, with great love and respect STACEY

HI STACEY, LOVED YOUR BLOG AS USUAL. WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS IS SO TRUE. I JUST CAME TO THAT REALIZATION LATELY--YOU ALMOST REVERSE ROLES WHEN MOM GETS OLDER. AFTER ALL THE YEARS OF HER BEING THERE FOR YOU, IT'S NICE THAT YOU CAN RECIPROCATE. TUSHY SOUNDS LIKE HE WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL TO CHILDREN, THE AGED AND PEOPLE WHO ARE ILL. GOOD LUCK.
