I wonder when it is that daughters start to see their mothers as human beings - flawed and wonderful...
and when mothers start to see their daughters as adults - needing to talk things through, but not necessarily needing mothering...
When is it that we forgive each other for our pasts?
When do we move forward through our relationships as adults who love and respect each other - enjoying each other as adults in ways that we couldn't when we were both much younger and growing into our current selves?
Is there a single moment when this happens?
Or is it multiple moments over time as we both grow and change into the women that we are?
It's a strange, interesting and lovely transition.
