It doesn’t feel like that long ago I was 16-17ish, placing my curiosities about my future in an old journal. Specifically the thought of one day having a family. It went along the lines of, “I can’t imagine what it would be like to be a mom.” Fast forward a few years later and I am expecting my little girl.

Having her has brought me closer to my own mother. Throughout the last eight years since I left home, we have bonded over international calls, Skype, Facebook messages and when possible, brief trips to the Philippines. We speak now more than ever.

I literally just got off the phone with her.

I love you mom. 

Happy Mother’s Day.
