Mothers and Daughters...

I am not really into "Reality Shows", but...I have been watching the Judds on OWN channel. They have a Therapist that travels with them on the road.  I hope it all works out for them and they get to the heart of it.  A few generations ago, very few people looked at their parents with all this resentment, they grew up and realized that their parents did the best they could. Every family has negative and positive. It is the hardest thing you will ever do and even when you read all the books, you are never prepared for everything.

The Mother/Daughter relationship is a very complex one. Perhaps if we looked at each other with the same understanding as we would give a friend... We could see things through their eyes and let them into our world too.  In this new tech world...more is not more.  Is quality time is a thing of the past?  Really getting to know your family.  Caring enough to put pride aside to listen to one another.  You cannot really know anyone by reading their blog, you are only an observer with your nose pressed up to the glass watching them and it is the emptiest feeling to know you are on the outside looking in.  We all think that it is up to the other person to be what we need, when we need it.  It can be sort of a stand off and no one wins.

TCM will be remembering her through her movies:

Secret Ceremony (1968) - Friday April, 1 2011 at 02:00 AM est
Little Women (1949) -  Wed, April 06, 2011 02:45 AM est.

April 10 - Memorial Schedule on TCM:

TCM's tribute will also feature Taylor in such memorable films as the family classics Lassie Come Home (1943) and National Velvet (1944); the delightful comedies Father of the Bride (1950) and Father's Little Dividend (1951); the historical epic Ivanhoe (1952); and the powerful dramas Giant (1956), Raintree County (1957) and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958). Also included is the spy drama Conspirator (1949), with Taylor in her first adult role.
