Mother's Day is a time to reflect upon the importance mothers play in our lives. They give us a sense of self and help us be the best we can. The gifts I gave her meant a lot to both of us. For me, it was a piece of history that was lost but later found and preserved in such a beautiful form. For my mother, it was a thoughtful gesture from her daughter and proved that all her effort wasn’t in vain. I can’t begin to describe how satisfied I felt, for helping her hold on to her family memories.
