|My mom with Simoni last year|
My mother is having a tough mother’s day – I am in graduate school in London, and my brother (and only sibling) is on a semester abroad in Australia – she is literally a quarter and half of the way around the world from us, respectively. I miss her, and I’m sorry not to be there – but at the end of the day, she’s instilled in my brother and me both the confidence to travel, to explore, to let our life path find us, and I am so grateful to her for that gift. Mine found me in a beautiful little girl named Zawadi, and I can’t wait until the day we have our first mother’s day together.
