This Mother’s Day, Time Magazine put a twist on things and asked several influential Mothers to write an open letter to their children. A number of power brokers including Chirlene McCray, Ivana Trump, and Victoria Beckham penned their thoughts. The letter that touched my heart was written by Tina Knowles Lawson. Written to Beyoncé, Solange, Kelly, and Angie and entitled, “You have been such a blessing to me,” Tina spoke of role reversal. You know that position that we Mothers find ourselves in when we go to our children for advice. Oh my heavens ….how many times have I found myself there! The incredible outcome about being subordinate is that our children get a chance to teach us what we taught them!
