In Mexico Mother's Day is always on May 10th, no matter what day of the week it falls on (this is the case with all holidays in Mexico, which makes for very interesting middle-of-the week parties that of course begin one day previous and sometimes go until the following Monday).
But in the sake of my adopted new Homeland and, more importantly, because she is going to the Hospital today because she will undergo surgery tomorrow, I am thinking of my Mom.
Sending her love and well wishes.
This is the most difficult thing bout being far away.
