Today is mother’s day in my country, Portugal. I celebrate this beautiful woman who here in her twenties, loved Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers movies, Frank Sinatra and dreamt of visiting America.

She wanted to be an actress but instead got married and had 6 very distinct children, me being the baby of the family. Ā I pay homage to the strong, courageous woman she was, who was always there for us and my father, who when I was sick took good care of me, who fed me delicious food and who taught me about life!

As the mother of a beautiful 3 year old girl, I now understand much more what it means to love unconditionally such a special being, to worry all the time, to feel loved, needed and appreciated. Above all I understand now why my mother told us repeatedly that she wished we were all small again. I want to cherish every special moment and sometimes want to stop time so that I can enjoy my baby a little while longer.

To all the mothers out there, Happy Mother’s day!

In this crazy new reality we seem to be living, it is even more important to be grateful for all the people who have crossed our path and touched us in same way.
