Mother Daughter Valentines

There is a special bond between a mother and daughter.

"Follow Me" by Robin Maria Pedrero

We as mothers wish all things good and wonderful in our daughter's lives.
We hold hope for them when we know they are challenged and struggling. 
We are proud of them watching them grow into confident women,
However no matter how old she gets she is still your baby girl!

"What I wanted most for my daughter 
was that she be able to soar confidently in her own sky, whatever that may be." Helen Claes

Reflecting on mothers who are always there, listening, loving,
ready to go to the ends of the earth and back for their daughters, 
we know that special bond is like no other, mother and daughter.

Speaking of going to the depths it's interesting that 
A Mojave legend tells of a primordial time when people lived in an underground world of darkness. They send a hummingbird up to look for light. High above them the little bird found a twisted path to the sunlit upper world where people now live.   Hummingbirds in Native American Legends

Then it should come as no surprise, heart touching as this was
 to receive several commissions for gifts
from mother to daughter and daughter to mother. 
What surprised me is they all requested hummingbirds!

Hummingbird by Robin Maria Pedrero
It is also believed that hummingbirds are messengers,
which is sometimes exactly what mothers and daughters need.

I am so very proud of my daughters, in all their beauty,
in all their brilliance, adoring their quirks
and wishing them wings to soar surrounded in love everyday! -  Mom

Robin, these pieces are beautiful! A great analogy for the hopes we have for our daughters. I did a couple of empty nest paintings myself when my one and only daughter left for college. One, a sad Mommy bird crying at the empty nest. The next, Mom with a puffed out chest watching her little birdy soar. Oh, motherhood!
