Mother's Day

Dear Mom,

I love you. I'm terribly far away now, and all grown up, which has changed things a little. I don't wake you up in the middle of the night crying . . . oh wait, yes I do. I don't come running with hurts and heartbreaks . . . oh wait, yes I do. I don't come asking for direction when I have difficult decisions in my life . . . oh wait, yes I do. Ok, on second thought, even though I'm 29 now, and live 4565.21 Miles away (that's 7346.79 KM), I'm still your little girl. So even though I don't physically cry on your shoulder or give you high fives when I achieve something, I still want to. And that's why I call in the middle of the night to cry, or laugh or celebrate some victory. I love you.

Happy Mother's Day.
