Dear grandma, dear aunts and every other mom who is reading or listening to this message, I am taking the time to write and dedicate a few words to you on this special day, the day on which we celebrate mother’s day; by doing so, we celebrate a day of true love. However only you, the mothers, know what this love is about and how it feels and I am just a humble observer who is trying to describe the love that only a mother has, but I could certainly never do it justice. A mother knows how to support and give the best to her children within her means, to trust when no one else believes, to forgive when no one else forgives, to provide that unconditional love, which is like no other love on earth and sometimes so great that it overflows and touches other children. I was one of those children and I want to thank you for giving me that love and care at some point in my life and for making me feel like one of yours: Happy Mother’s Day.
