Today is my mom’s birthday. I feel incredibly grateful to have her as a mother. All these years that I have lived away from my family, I never felt far from them. I don’t know what I’d do without her.
We celebrated her birthday today. My sister took the photos, and I don’t have copies of the pictures just yet. Instead, I’ll share with you what I did last Mother’s Day. It was a simple get together. My mom invited my grandmother, aunt and cousin who just gave birth.
I also ordered a cake from Estrel’s Caramel Cake.
I did a very simple table setting.
I also offered flowers to Mama Mary.
It just takes a little effort to show how much we appreciate the people we love. Spending quality time smiling with family and friends is priceless.
“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my mother.”
