Linda on her daughters Isabella and Victoria
1. My girls and I share our love of traveling. We get a lot of joy searching for our next destination and then exploring together once we get there. We throughly enjoy the family time vacations give us.
2. The girls and I share many characteristics, however, our biggest difference is the girls tend to be more reserved where as I tend to be more outgoing. To some degree this serves our relationship and even balances our family gatherings.
3. My daughters have taught me the joys of motherhood. There has been no greater satisfaction than watching them grow and sharing in all of their adventures. I feel blessed to be their mom and they make me proud every day.
Isabella and Victoria on their mom:
1. We feel blessed to share our sense of compassion with our mother. Growing up our mother has modeled compassion for others from taking such good care of our grandmother as she ages to speaking to others about struggles they encounter in life.
2. As much as we share with our mother, we have some aspects of our personality that are different. We tend to prefer smaller social groups and can be somewhat quiet, where as our mother gets a lot of joy in larger settings.
3. Our mother taught us courage most of all, as we watched her battle cancer and remain focused on her recovery all while she remained attentive to our feelings and needs.
