it’s been almost a year since i’ve been in the same room as my mom, and i miss her so much. we’ve always been close, i think and we still talk almost every day – even if we live in different countries. i hope that she knows how much that means to me. my mom’s a great person to talk to and i always want to share as much of my life with her as i can, and hear about hers. we have so much fun when it comes to talking: political, religious, social, economical, gossip, etc. i always call her to read something i’ve read, or read something i have written, or complain about something, or share something exciting, or just to check in on the weather. no matter what, through all these years, she’s always there to listen. and she’s taught me how to live life to the fullest – to embrace spontaneity, to cherish family, and to think of others.
i wish i could take her out to eat today to celebrate her today, a tradition that we usually have every mother’s day… but, soon! we’ll be enjoying many meals together in about 1.5 months!!! and i can’t wait!!
thank you for being you, mom. i’m so thankful that you are my mother and my friend. i love you! happy mother’s day!!!
Very moving words. Today is mothers day in Switzerland as well. One tradition we share.
nicole: thank you, my friend!
