Here's the 'gift' part...


She remembered.

And it was the only thing that actually mattered to Maria. But she clicked the link anyway. And she smiled.

'A Mother like no Other

I wish you only knew

How great you are a mother

And blest are only few

Of which I am part

And I am grateful for

All you've placed your heart

Into, since long before.

And I may not always show

Interest as it should, but

Your teachings I'll never throw

Instead always bear in mind.

So on this special day

Though miles keep us apart

Know I'm with you, in my own way

And I love you with all my heart."

And it ended with:

"Happy Mother's Day!"
