Being so far away from my mother is difficult, but that doesn’t mean a phone call to her can’t cheer me up. I wish I could have spent this Mother’s Day with my own mother, but I’m glad I was able to spend it with family. We also celebrated my grandmother’s and cousin’s birthdays since they fall so close to the holiday. Lucky for us…that meant cake and ice cream!
To all the mothers out there: old and new mamas, expecting mamas, pet mamas, my mother-in-law, and my own mama…know how thankful we are for everything you do. Every day should be devoted to you!
