Sorry I haven't written in a while, my mom's been away in California to see Amma, an Indian saint. She'll be home tomorrow. I miss her so much! Life's so different without my mom around.
I have to do all the housework. The dishes, the laundry and I have to put Shawn and Annabel to bed.
I get lonely. I don't get my mom to put me to bed and to talk to me before I go to sleep. We usually laugh and have a great time or sometimes, I need to talk to her when I need help or I'm feeling sad.
And, I really realize how much work my mom does for my brother and sister and me. I did her work for three days and I'm exhausted. She does that work every day. And she doesn't complain much. And if I wrote my mom a letter right now, this is what I'd say:
Thanks mom, for all you do for me. Thanks for keeping me safe, thanks for always making me feel better when I'm sad or in pain, thanks for doing the laundry and the work around the house, thanks for helping me come into the world.
I know that I owe so much to you and I'll always love and appreciate what you do for me and everyone else.
And mom, I really miss you and can't wait to see you tomorrow!
