Mother and Child – The Movie – A Review

Mother and Child – The Movie

Mother and Child, have you seen this movie? It’s about giving away your baby after a teenage pregnancy for adaption. The decision to give up her baby daughter has always haunted Karen, the main character. The given-away-daughter Elizabeth, grows up to be solitary, willful, and hardhearted. She sees the world as a very unfriendly and treacherous place, and rightly so!

The impact on the 14 year old mother Karen, on the baby Elizabeth and on the mother of the teenage daughter, is very strong. The emotional stuff, like fear, shame and enormous guilt.

After seeing the movie, I was touched by the story and drama, especially because mother-daughter relationship problems are coming at women at high impact pain during stressful and challenging events.

In the end of the movie, the given-away-daughter Elizabeth becomes pregnant herself and dies while giving birth to her child. Since no one steps forward to claim the baby, a woman called Lucy adopts her. One year later, Karen finds out about her daughter Elizabeth’s death and letter, which informs her that she has a granddaughter named Ella. She meets the little girl and this is the happy end, thank God!

Some scenes were pretty rough but all and all, I enjoyed the movie.

It’s a given that we live in a society that is not very friendly towards women with teenage pregnancies, single mothers, or anything that escapes patriarchal system, morality and rules. How women try to resolve this and survive the system, is pretty damn creative. In the end, we should demand that the system change or change it ourselves.

In Honor of My Mom!

In Honor of My Mom!

Years ago on my Mom’s birthday, I launched my business, my very first business and since then, I have been pretty successful growing a business, serving customers well and employing other people.

My mom is such a good person with a great heart and a blessing – not only to me, but to her whole family and environment.
With my business success, I realize how important it is to have my Mom support me with monies I could borrow for starting up my business back then, for decent advice, and pots of soup when I was too busy to cook.

Mom kept on believing in me on moments that I wanted to call it quits and she also kicked me forward when things seem to be going too tough.

I also realize that I didn’t do “my” business all by myself and that my Mom and my family is a big part of it too.

This thought brings feelings great appreciation and gratitude and a knowing that nobody is alone and we are all part of a fabric of dear and intimate relationships.

Today I am writing this in her honor.

Thank you Mom, for being in my life and for giving me life!

In gratitude,

Your daughter

Great Moms…

I read it somewhere…

Great Moms…

Great Moms

Have sticky floors,

Messy kitchens,

Piles of laundry,

Dirty ovens

And most of all…

Happy kids!

Valentine’s Day – Expressing Love

Valentine’s Day – Expressing Love

Expressing your love to a dear one, is always good, it feels good.

And if LOVE feels over the top, just expressing that you care, feels just as good.

But do we always have to buy presents when we wish to express care and love?

Well, one could say that talk is cheap, and buying a gift is to put the money where the mouth is.

On the other hand one may find that expressing love and care is about intentions, it is also about feelings. It expresses NOTHING if this is NOT genuinely coming from the heart.

The physical gift is just the gesture to emphasize the feeling of love, coming from the heart, but is not necessary.

What is necessary to convey expressions of love and care?

That it feels right.

That it feels strongly.

That is feels sincerely.

That it is REAL.

Oh and while we are at it, let’s repeat it every day in new ways. Because it feels so good.

Expressing love!

My Mom is My Sweetheart

My Mom is My Sweetheart

Its wintertime and I got one of those nasty colds for some days now. I’m not happy with this as it sets me back in all the stuff I need to do. But in another way I can’t say it’s bad to take some downtime.

So I’m on the couch with hot tea and orange juice not having an appetite for two days now.

I do another miserable attempt trying to catch up on my reading, when I give up and doze off.

Suddenly my thoughts go to when I was sick when I was a kid.

Of course no school and I remembered my Mom taking care of me.

She bought me tea, orange juice, biscuits and bowl of wonderful vanilla custard, the one creamy custard that I love.

She for sure would have been late for her work, but she wanted to make sure I was taken care of and that I was eating something.

Must have been hard to have me as her daughter, I suddenly realize with a smile.

But she was and is a great Mom and I dearly love her!

My Mom is my sweetheart!
