TGIF

I am searching for heartfelt and inspirational stories about mother-daughter relationships, stories that share wisdom and teach important moral and life lessons, stories from which daughters and moms might derive hope and guidance after reading them.

What did you learn from this unique parent-child relationship, how it has changed over the years, how you two dealt with conflict, etc? The stories can be about good or bad times, as long as the result is something others can learn from. There are no format or length requirements.

For more information about submitting your story, please visit my website, www.gregoryelang.com, and click the red corner on the home page, just beneath the “Projects” tab.

I’m also conducting recorded telephone interviews for those who prefer to tell rather than write their story. Just send me an email with your phone number and dates/times you are available. Interviews typically last 30-45 minutes.

If you’d like to submit a daughter-mom photo to display on this blog, please email it to greg.lang@mindspring.com.

If this is your first visit to my blog, please read the Frequently Asked Questions posted on March 20, 2008.

The deadline for submitting your story or participating in an interview is August 1, 2008.

Now on to today’s post~

Today’s photo is of Jan Stubbs and her mom. It first appeared in Why a Daughter Needs a Mom, my fifth book that serves as inspiration for Mom’s Little Angel just as Why a Daughter Needs a Dad did for Daddy’s Little Girl.

A quote taken from an interview I conducted yesterday – “My mother has been my biggest fan my entire life.” Thank you Rosemary! Your story will be a tear-jerking crowd pleaser, I’m sure.

BTW, Shad. If "we are NOT getting a dog!" is your most often stated protest said as one husband to his wife, then we might be related. At least we are in spirit. I, who married a woman who came with a dog, say more often than I can count, “THAT is our last dog!” Don’t give in brother, because it won’t end with the dog. Then there will be special bedding, toys and seasonal outfits.

Ever seen Ace of Cakes on the Food Network? There is a similar bakery here that Meagan wants us to use for making the cake for her graduation party. For a mere $175 I could get a cake shaped like UGA’s Sanford Stadium and if that weren’t enough school spirit I could also have one shaped like the mascot, Uga, but they wouldn’t give me a quote for that one over the phone. Must have something to do with their liability insurance.

Well, I guess that’s enough for today. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Now go out and hug somebody!
