For a Special MUM

This post is especially for you Mum.  Today is not Mother's Day. But then i don't need one day out of 365 days to realize just how  special you are to all of your daughters. The fact that one of my friends recently lost her mother after a long battle for life, made me realize how fortunate i am to have you as a Mum, and to be living so near to you, where you are not just a phone call away but a  mere 5 minutes drive to your home.  Indeed i am blesssed. So, rather than wait for six months down the line for the next Mother's Day, i am writing this post today, as tomorrow is another day.
