Happy Birthday Mamma!

Just wanted to dedicated a post to my mum, as today is her birthday!

Her name is Barbara and she has been a wonderful mum throughout my 31 years of age and I couldn't have been the person I am now without her guidance, her love, her advice and her strong belief in me.

I couldn't have managed to move to a different country without all that she has taught me and she has been incredibly brave in letting me go even though she knew she would miss me terribly and still does.

I miss you too mum, but the distance has made our relationship even more special.

Happy Birthday Mum! Buon Compleanno Mamma!!

Great post!

My mum is my best friend and my hero. Yes, I know, time to cut the umbellic cord... :)

I admire the people that have managed to overcome their differencies towards their parents and can meet like two grown people that actually love and respect one another. I've never assumed I was in minority, but most my friends have a rather weird relationship to their parents.

Great to see another mature, loving daughter! :D

RYC: Thank you! You're so sweet! Yep, Easter came and went just fine (it lost a few pounds that I found, off course...) You?

I love this. I am very close to my mother as well. We live over 2000 miles from each other but we talk almost every day.
I miss her all the time and I agree that the distance has improved our relationship. We don't sweat the little things and treasure each other.
Happy Birthday Erica's Mamma!!!
