It is my mama's birthday today, 13th of January. I called her last night (morning in Philippine time) to greet her, and my husband greeted her, too. I am so sad that I missed her birthday for the second time now. I am so sad that I was not able to go because the money that I am raising up could not be enough to make the trip fulfilling.
Anyhow, I was talking to my mama about this few weeks ago, and she understood my situation. She even told me to take my time preparing for the trip. She knows my heart. I am so thankful to God for giving me a very loving, caring and understanding mother. I am just sad that besides of being not there, the letter that I sent her 40 days ago did not arrive yet. But other than that, she is pefectly fine and in good health. I always thank God for that. I sent her money every month for her needs, and because I want to make sure that she always have money of her own. I really miss my mama. Now that I missed her birthday again, I don't know when will be the perfect time to go and visit her.
