The Last and Final Frontier!

My book "Love Letters to My Daughters-in-Law" was inspired by my response to mother-in-law "jokes".  I didn't notice before I became a mother-in-law, but then I began to wonder why it was now politically incorrect to insult any group but this one.

This book is about relationship, relationship with ourselves as well as with others.  Because this particular group, the mother-in-law enclave, seems to invite so much comment and censure, I thought I would focus on what many find most difficult, while also suggesting we look at all relationships with more tenderness, especially the one we have with ourselves.

I think the relationship between the mother-in-law and the daughter-in-law is the last and final frontier.  There is a great deal to explore here, in, and for each, of us.

What is our relationship to our mother?  How do we mother ourselves?  How do we allow another to mother us?  Do we?

I invite each of us to listen, to listen to that small, perhaps timid, or maybe loud and vibrant voice within.

Who knows what may respond?
