Today is Mother's Day in Argentina. To all the moms out there in my adopted country, ¡Feliz día!
No relationship can ever hope to replace the one that I had with my mother, but I do feel extremely fortunate to have Daniel's mom Hilda in my life. She's one of those people who would do virtually anything for her loved ones, and she treats me like one of her own. And did I mention that she makes really good panqueques con dulce de leche?
Here's a letter that I wrote to my mother last year on the anniversary of her passing. The words are truer today than ever.
