Every year we try to outdo last years mother’s day. One year it was gift cards to go shopping. The next year it was lunch at Fogo De Chao. This year it’s salmon, wine, and a trip to Niagra Falls.
Four years ago I cried in desperation as Neto and I drove back home. I bought a house for my mom thinking I was doing the right thing. Years later I realized that she just wants peace.
She is great at helping others and never expects anything not even a thank you in return, and that is where my mom is the better person.
For everything she has done for me and others, I am thankful. For the woman I am, I am indebted. And for the person I desire to be, well let’s just say I’ve been working on my nice skills.
Happy Mother’s Day Mom.
Ps. Thank you to my sisters Caro and Ish-shah for your selflessness. Thank you for your devotion and willingness to give your time, money, and effort for our mom. I can’t forget the amazing men in our lives- Neto and David for going along with our crazy adventures, whether it’s down the road, up the mountains, or accross the atlantic, you’re selfless for sharing the world with our mom.
