For My Mother on Mother’s Day

This weekend is Mother’s Day in North America. It is a time to say thank you to all mother’s that we know, but especially the one who gave birth to you or raised you.

At this time of the year people usually reflect on the year before. Things that should have been done and things that did happen.

I look forward to what 2013 will bring as well as what I will be able to achieve.
