Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Leisure Lane. I’d like to also give a warm welcome to my new follower.
I have a couple of wonderful things to share with you today.
You know, mothers are suppose to be loving, nurturing, and full of compassion – especially to their own children. I had a wonderful relationship with my mother. She was warm, generous, lovingly approachable, and to this day I can imagine her sweet humming throughout the house as she folded clothes or prepared a meal. In fact, most recently, I find myself doing the same, and it always reminds me of her. She had her flaws, as we all do, and some of them were not attractive. But for the most part – the part that has left a remarkable impression upon my childhood and adulthood – she was, for me, the best.
Unfortunately, not everyone has had an experience like mine. On occasion, I have heard people say that their mother was far from loving, but rather cold and distant, and some, even abusive. My heart has always hurt for anyone who has had such an experience, and I couldn’t imagine the pain that such a relationship could bring.
D.G. Kaye is an amazing woman, who has journeyed within her soul and found the courage to write about her experience with her emotionally abusive mother. She most vulnerably opens her heart to take you through her journey of abuse, guilt, and the power she ultimately finds in forgiveness.
If you have ever had a troubling relationship with a parent, or know someone who has, then this book can help you go beyond that experience.
P.S. I Forgive You:A Broken Legacy by D.G. Kaye
“I hurt for her. She wasn’t much of a mother, but she was still my mother.”
Confronted with resurfacing feelings of guilt, D.G. Kaye is tormented by her decision to remain estranged from her dying emotionally abusive mother after resolving to banish her years ago, an event she has shared in her book Conflicted Hearts. In P.S. I Forgive You, Kaye takes us on a compelling heartfelt journey as she seeks to understand the roots of her mother’s narcissism, let go of past hurts, and find forgiveness for both her mother and herself.
After struggling for decades to break free, Kaye has severed the unhealthy ties that bound her to her dominating mother—but now Kaye battles new confliction, as the guilt she harbors over her decision only increases as the end of her mother’s life draws near. Kaye once again struggles with her conscience and her feelings of being obligated to return to a painful past she thought she left behind.
