A Cup of Comfort
A Mother and Daughter are reunited in love.
Early in the pregnancy, my daughter started bleeding. I took her to the emergency room, but the tests revealed everything was fine. However, as weeks went by, the spotting continued. One morning after my daughter had spent the night with me and was soaking in a hot bath, blood suddenly started gushing from her, staining the water deep crimson. She had just entered her sixth month of pregnancy.
The mother-daughter relationship retains its power and poignancy throughout a women's life. As mothers raise their daughters to womanhood, as daughters care for mothers through midlife and beyond, and as mothers watch daughters become mothers themselves, the changing and growing mother-daughter bond is - and always will - a cornerstone for every woman.
