A Mother’s Touch

Photo taken by contributor Danielle, a woman with severe depression and anxiety attacks.

About this photo: “This is a shot I took of my mother and my daughter at the beach together. Grandmother and granddaughter, hand in hand. So much of the time I feel like a terrible mother and daughter because of my illness. I set too high of standards and can never come close to reaching them. But at times like these, the issues seem to be washed away, and I can appreciate the beauty of things, especially nature, and my loving family. I am very lucky to be mother to a special little girl, and to have a mother.

Happy day to my mother, and all mothers and like-mothers.”
