History. An endured past, creating tools of direction for the future; motherhood the fixed effect.

Legacies are designed, whether positive or negative, from each preceding Maternal Cycle. Selection of traits, traditions, and values come from the scrutinized review of our predecessor. Pondered past events requires a choice to be made; love of life or seething endurance. Gleaning creates a compilation of favors and disfavors, strengths and weaknesses, and the healing of inflictions.

Time is an immeasurable indulgence for children. A mother’s fatigue, or stress, is unable to sway the child’s need for the “The Gingerbread Man” and “The Three Little Pigs” before bed; timeless classics from my children’s younger years. Laughter filled the story time, followed by hugs and goodnight kisses. Memories are created, the legacy has begun.

Maternal Cycles are the path in which a mother leads and follows within the same step. Discipline, honesty, love and dedication are choices made with each step, shaping this path for an interminable time. Refusal to replicate the negative strengthens the favor of this legacy.

Disfavors, weaknesses, and inflictions of preceding generations are, by far, the heaviest to suppress. Resoluteness for alteration creates substantial labor; emancipation from the negative is required for success in the Maternal Cycle.

Listening with hearing ears furnishes acceptance. Truthful answers precipitate the capability of mature choices in children and young adults. Respect delivers approval. Discipline provides constructive direction. Unconditional love (sometimes tough love) lends to the successful ability to learn and try again, rising above the circumstances.

Result of a predecessor’s legacy; I am a mother.

My choice is love of life. My choice is success. My Maternal Cycle attempts a legacy of favor, strength and healing. Time is but a moment, then gone; unable to be recaptured. I have lead and followed within the same step. Resoluteness for alteration has been my labor of love.

My successor’s legacy has been shaped.

You have an impressive vocabulary and a unique writing style.

This may be a bit abstract for some readers, and there are a few place where semicolons are used incorrectly.

I really liked your 3rd paragraph a great deal.
