At the risk of sounding obvious, it takes two for a relationship.

For too long, I believed I could do it all myself.

At midlife, I now realize my sole efforts don't work, so I have let go.

I could have been the greatest daughter a mother could ever have wanted, if I had the kind of mother who would have wanted that.

I could be the greatest mother a daughter could ever want, if she was open to receiving that.

For my mother, it is surely too late. For my daughter, there are many life chapters yet to be written, but I am no longer waiting, standing by, holding my breath.

My life goes on in so many other, just as great ways.
