A letter to my daughter

I am the first of five sisters and cousin to many more females. I have one daughter and i do all i can to make my relationship with her, more of what i wsh i had with my mother.

Especially when it does not seem like, always remember that i love you.

Dear Daughter,

The day i had you was one of the best and proudest moments in my life. When i looked at you in my arms, the feeling which overwhelmed me, i have never been able to describe and i made a resolution then, that i would be a "Mother" to you, by the grace of God.

I as your parent have made plenty of mistakes, decisions which have not always been smart, i have followed parts, i would not thread again if i have a second chance.
In more ways, than one, i wish i could turn back the hands of the clock, still i do all i can to give you and your siblings a better future, better choices, opportunities than i had when i was growing up.

One of my worst fears is that you make the same mistakes which i made, i want you to be stronger than i am, achieve more of your goals and dreams, make more positive impact than i can make and most of all live longer than me.

When i am strict (i know i am), it is part of my responsibility as an adult and parent to let you know that actions have consequences, respect for self and others is an advantage and will serve you well.
My mantra that Charity begins at home is true, so i support, advice, insist on guiding you the best way i can.

Please be braver than me, follow the right path, avoid and reject risky dangerous company, habits and actions.
Love, grow, build, plant, succeed, reach out positively and live and most of all learn from my mistakes, you do no deserve any less.

Most of all, always keep your faith.
I love you.

Your Mother.

I think this is what having children is all about, we all make mistakes, it is how we make up for them that turns the world around.

One of novel ways to improve mom-daughter relationship is through letters; recipient can truly appreciate such move more than face-to-face.

A heartfelt letter. Unfortunately we siblings often repeat the lives of our parents unconsciously. Perhaps our karma is intertwined to do that. I am nearly 60 now, and I see that I did indeed repeat many of the mistakes that my father made too. I just didn't learn from him, or maybe I was too proud to think that he had something worthwhile to show me. We repeat the sins of our fathers the bible says that too. It would take a very special person indeed not to do that I think.

Good share and feelings Wogiam. As long as we learn we made mistakes and also the right lessons we should be alright. Every parent wants the best for their children but the latter may not know then till after they made their own - siva
