This NY Times opinion piece about one woman’s journey through motherhood while feeling un-mothered herself…totally brought the tears. I’m pretty sure there is a line in there everyone could relate to.

If you grew up without the best example as a parent and find yourself mothering someone now, chances are you will relate to the idea of trying to be a better parent than you had. And chances are you sometimes fail at that. This one is for you.

The kind of beautiful advice I would want from a mother.

And this advice, too.

Did you ever watch Parenthood? Such an interesting depiction of parenting and families. When you get done with that, check out Friday Night Lights! Such food for thought. Got any others you would recommend?!
