This year, my mother will be 6000 miles away on our special day. Not only is it Mothers’ Day, but I was born on her day, so we often celebrate together. I love retelling the story of how when they wheeled my mom into the hospital at 7am on that Sunday, they already wished her a happy Mothers’ Day although I was still a few hours from arriving.
This year, my mom and my step-dad are headed to their hometown for the summer and are trying to make it before all the tourists arrive. They both grew up in Prague and now that I live in California, we often spend many months a year living nine hours in time difference apart.
Fortunately, with the use of technology, we are able to keep in touch. We email four to five times a day and use it like a conversation. She also has an iPhone so she’s able to check for messages even when she isn’t at her desk. Lastly, I also sent her a present early and I think she’s going to love it.
