Alphabet of thanks, “D”

I am grateful today for my Daughter.


She is one of the nicest, kindest, most giving person I know. I would love to say the “apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”, but I’m not sure that’s true.

Sometimes mother/daughter relationships are troubled. I loved my mother dearly and I know she loved me but our relationship was complicated at times. She never really knew me and that wasn’t her fault, that was mine. For reasons I won’t divulge, I was hesitant to share too much. I will probably always wonder if our relationship would have been different if I had.

Female relationships can be more complicated than male relationships, don’t you think? As a general rule, men are more “surface” in their relationships. They don’t worry too much whether they said the right thing, did the right thing, etc. They don’t worry about the future of a relationship. We women do all these things.

Back to my daughter.

We are very close. We talk every day. She doesn’t try to be something she isn’t. I am grateful for many things this Thanksgiving season and she is at the top of the list with some other people you will read about.


I hope if you are reading this and your relationship with your own daughter is not as healthy as you’d like it to be, you won’t give up. Just because something is a certain way today, doesn’t mean it will always be that way. Remember, “It is what it is”, doesn’t mean it will always be that way. It’s not written in stone.

Give it some time.

Give it some thought.

Give it some prayer.

I found this article I thought might help.

God bless and have a good day,
