cinco de mayo Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. My mom lives 3,000 miles away so we will just be speaking on the phone this weekend. My mom is pretty great. Just like any mother and daughter, we get frustrated with each other, but I love my mom very much and, although I don’t want her living with me, I wish she lived closer.
I sent my mom a package containing little Mother’s Day gifts. I’m hoping it arrives on time as the postal service in Hawaii is often much to be desired. The envelope was decorated especially for her…
Here is a “poem” (I’m not a poet and I totally know it!) about my Mom…
Mom, when you are in Hawaii
I miss you so much.
When you are here (staying with me)
Well, not as such.
You’re the person I call
When I need advice
Or just to chat about our day
Is very nice.
I love to hear about your crazy antics
Like transporting ganja in the trunk
Or not deleting trapster so
you can drive home drunk .
(I know she’ll kill me for that stanza)
You shoot beautiful photography
In your tropical location
And make just about everyday
A special occasion.
I know it’s been an adjustment
Without dad in your life
But you’ve handled it quite well
Without too much strife.
I continue to wish you
And many bottles
Of good red wine!
Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
and a happy cinco de mayo to you all!
