Conversations with My Mother

Explore, Question and Discover…

I realized In early childhood that my words were valued and heard. This empowering life lesson came at the knee of my Mother Margie. She often told this story always for my benefit. The story goes “When I tell my daughter to do something” She says “Why Mother”. So, I was launched on my quest to discover the power of my own voice. My Mother would listen intently giving serious consideration to my quest for answers. Often, I could sense both her bemusement and frustration. As I fired off question after question. Repeatedly asking “but why? but why? but why? Finally, she would look me in the eyes. Half laughing half serious and say, “Because Y is a crooked letter”. Temporarily satisfied, I would wander off to contemplate how Y could be a crooked letter. My quests for answers taught me how to seek my own counsel and draw my own conclusions. I was learning how to think. I still take time daily to contemplate Y to seek solutions, find answers and listen to my own counsel.  I was empowered to explore, question and discover on all fronts. Now that is power.  Thanks Mommargiesdaughter.com
