This mother's day inspired me so deeply. I can relate with many aspects of this letter. I am sure some of you also miss mom in such a special day. I think you will find this warm and a little close to the heart.

Mom, you are the only person in this world that I can truly rely on, the only one that I know will never let me down. However, we have found ourselves with so much distance in between that won't allow us to spend much time together.

Do you recall when was the last Mother's Day we spent together? I have a vague memory.

Our only means of communication are the phone calls. Do you have any idea how much I wish we could embrace for a little while? I wish I could wake up to the sound of your spoon as you whisk your morning coffee.

There are so may instances where I feel sad and lonely, and all I want is for you to be in the same room as me.

The times I call I feel like bursting into tears because I just miss you so much. I want to see that look in your eyes when you tell me over the phone that everything is going to be alright, that we would see each other soon ... but that doesn't make me feel any better. Other times, remember? ... I wouldn't speak to you for days because I felt like it would only make the situation worse, but that just made me feel like a terrible person.

No matter how many friends I surround myself with, I still feel like something is missing.

Nothing feels as good as having you mom. You have no idea how much I savor every moment that we spend together when we have the opportunity.

I'm trying to be present, only living in the moment. Mom, you are my one true love and I so wish you were a stone's throw away.

Sending my love through the distance. Happy Mother's Day.
