Mother's Day

My Mom and I, on a day trip to Paris in October 2010.
This was one of the most fun days I've had in recenet memory.
We took the Eurostar from London, to Paris for the day, for a
whirlwind tour of the city, doing the Seine cruise, the Eiffel Tower
with a champagne lunch and running through the Louvre to
see the Mona Lisa. It was fun at its best.
If only I could carbon copy that day.

What do you say to the person who gave birth to you? The one who raised you, and instilled good self esteem in you. I come from a long line of strong women . My Babcia (grandmother), my Mom and my Aunt Helen are all ladies with a strong personality, who do not shy away from life and embrace as much as they are allowed to. I am happy to have come from such a gene pool. On this Mother's Day, I thank my Mom, for becoming a stronger influence on me as the years go on. Perhaps it is knowing that our days will be shorter ahead, rather than longer? Whatever the reason, I am thankful for having my Mom around - to skype with, to laugh with, to moan to, to question with, to pudder with, to travel with and to just be with. Happy Mother's Day Mom! I love you.

  1. My dear Kathi; To read your thoughts about me and our relationship moved me to tears and I'm all choked up and I've just put on my mascara. Pretty messy. Darling, it works both ways; you have always been there for me, especially as my health has deteriorated. You have been my Rock. I don't know what my life would be like without your constant challenges and affirmations. How kind of you to also acknowledge my mother and my sister as women of influence in your life.You, my dear Kat, you have only enhanced and and made my life exciting, fun, curious and loving. I love you with all my heart, and know if you were not in my life, it would be a much duller experience without you.
