About Mom & Daughter

My mom, Doris Gordon, and I have always had a close mother/daughter relationship, more like best friends. We understand one another, and we laugh a lot together. Plus, we’ve spent A LOT of bonding time together over the years.

The first 18 years of my life, Mom and I traveled to Steilacoom almost EVERY Saturday to spend the day with her mother, my Grandma Grace. Grandma sometimes visited us at our home in Enumclaw too. After I graduated from EWU, the year after Grandma died, Mom and I would spend the next 20 years doing weekend sleepovers once or twice a month, sometimes at her place in Lakewood, sometimes at my home in Portland, sometimes with boyfriends or husbands, sometimes with grandkids.

The threesome bond between grandmother, mother, and daughter was and still is unbreakable. Our love for one another, unconditional. To this day, I reminisce about all that time we spent together. I think about how lucky I am to have had my formative years guided under the watch of Grandma Grace and Mom Doris, two character-rich women of integrity, loyalty, compassion, ethics, honesty, humility, responsibility, and generosity.

Their influence shaped my own character into what it is today. 

I am now my mother’s memory of days gone by. I want to spend every day, every night with her, be with her as much as I can. If I could, I would come scoop her up and bring her home to live with me, like what she did for Grandma Grace.
