I’ve seen tears in your eyes – tears for my suffering, my happiness, and my disappointments. I’ve seen hope on your face – hope for my wishes, my blessings and my best.

I’ve seen determination in you – when you wanted to be sure that I was happy. I’ve seen so much love in you – a love that is unconditional.

Thank you, Mom. I love you, too.

The above mini card was purchased and signed by my daughter, Esther, and son, Dominic, on my birthday Dec 8
