Mom & I is a different kind of mommy blog. It is not for young mothers with young children. While I’m the mother of an adorable 5-year-old bishon frise named Truffle, this blog is about my mother and me. Actually, it’s about two mothers, my late mother, Ruth Kurman, who died 42 years ago when I was 13 and my other mother, Celia, who married my father when I was 21.
Mom & I is for all daughters and sons of aging parents.
I’m going to tell stories, offer insights, and hopefully provide resources to help you understand what to expect as your parents age.
This blog is about how the many powerful women in my life helped to shape who I am and how their actions affected me and everyone in my extended family.
This is, of course, my opinion. I am not a therapist. I have no professional training in the area. I am a daughter. A daughter-in-law. Mother to Truffle. And, wife to Lee Barrie.
As you read,I hope that you’ll think about your own life. You may have your own stories to tell. I urge everyone reading this blog to post your thoughts. I’m looking forward to the journey.
Mom & I. Helping each other by discovering the common thread that makes us one.
