When Mother's Day approaches each year, I usually go down memory lane a bit. I remember my own mother who passed away in 1970 at the age of 44. I take some time to commune with her spirit and thank her for all she imparted to me before she departed this earth.

Growing older, gtrowing stronger. How does your relationship grow?
In our book, Mother/Daughter Duets, we examine a range of concerns in the relationships between mature daughters and their mothers growing old. We ourselves are such a mother/daughter team. We use our own relationship, along with many others who have contributed their own experiences to our book to shine a spotlight on the dynamics of the adult mother/daughter interactions, highlighting the changes that occur during maturation.
Avoid the mistakes that your mother may have made in her relationship.
It happens for just about everyone. At some point while growing up or as an adult, the vow is made, "I'll never be like my mother!" This could be a rejection of her habits, values, opinions, or lifestyle choices. This also possibly includes the way that you perceive how she mis-handled her marriage or love relationship.
