yesterday (march 10th) was mother’s day in england. although i live stateside and there aren’t any cards available until may, i still skyped and whatsapped her a message i would have otherwise written in a card. (if you don’t know what whatsapp is click on the link and check it out. it is genius. especially if you live far away from friends and family. and if you have a smart phone).
my dad and my brother managed to prepare a lovely sunday lunch for her. i was proud. they usually forget.
here she is. the woman who holds my hand when i’m scared. who hugs me when i have a bad day and who loves me regardless of my weaknesses and short comings. and despite the almost 5000 mile distance between us, she still does it.
mummy dearest you are my hero.
