Happy Mother's Day 2011!!

A very HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all Mother's out there today!  The day almost got by me without me getting in a post!

One of the very hardest things living on another continent than my Mother is missing her so much and being so far away from her.  Still, her Mother left her Mother in Spain.  My Mom left her Mom in Colombia and I have left my Mom for the Middle East.  With modern day technology, it is easier for me to keep in touch with her.  Her Mother never saw her Mother again back in Spain.  My Mom only saw her Mom once after she moved to America.  I get to see mine every other year!  I eyeball my almost 15 year old (she turns 15 on Tuesday, May 10th!) daughter and wonder what she will pull on me!

Nonetheless, FELIZ DIA DE MADRE Mami!

This is one of my favorite photos of my Mom and I and my sister.  I had the TERRIBLE habit of pulling up my little dresses.  I was at it again so she is holding it in place.  Very cute!

This was taken in St. Louis, Missouri when I was about 3 or 4.
