One good thing about the time difference between Canada and Australia is that I rarely forget my mother’s birthday. While it is still my anniversary here it is already my mother’s birthday there. So if I remember my anniversary then I will probably remember her birthday and vice versa!
These photos were taken during the summer while my parents were staying with us. It was a wonderful time. I think the thing I enjoyed most was having them to talk to day after day and not having to remember the things I needed to discuss next time we talked on the phone or emailed. My mother and I had many conversations and she also had time for many chats with the rest of the family too.
Another thing I appreciate about my mother is her faithfulness in prayer, it is an encouragement to me daily and an inspiration to me in my own prayer life. I could go on and write of many more things about my mother that I appreciate but I will stop there and go and call her and wish her Happy Birthday.
