We are so far apart and yet we are so close together. You live in White Rock, British Columbia, Canada. I live in Leek, Staffordshire, England. Eight time zones apart and a distance of about 4600 miles.
Almost every Saturday we chat on the phone. And your calls, your love, your support and encouragement, have seen me through the toughest times of my life.
Oh how I miss you. And today, August 31, 2012, this very special day, I dedicate this posting to you, my beloved mother.
My mother does volunteer work. Every few months she goes into Vancouver on the bus and the rapid transit system to look after and serve meals to "the old folks". Dear mother, have a peaceful, positive eightieth birthday. I love you.
