Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
~ Ann Taylor, Original Poems for Infant Minds
Yesterday I donned a snake bracelet that I inherited when my mother passed away. She loved gold. Her wedding band which also in my possession is a solid 22K gold. I prefer silver to gold. When I was younger, I remember I always strived to be the opposite of her. Then one day a few years ago, while debating with my ex-husband, I realized, “Oh my god, I sound just like my mother”. Dont get me wrong, my mother was a beautiful, smart, resourceful, artistic, generous and loving woman I ever know. I may never bicker like my mother again, but 14 years after my mother’s death, I find it far more comforting than irritating to realize how much she’s still there in my mind.
