The Perfect Gift For Me

Hello Everybody!

I want to finish my story about a surprise to me from my husband. Guess what? It is true. My husband brought me such a big and wonderful surprise, My Mom. This is the perfect gift for me. I don't want to go to Disney, I don't want a cruise, I don't want one million dollars. I just want my beautiful mom, her hug, her company. When she arrived she called me and she said: "Lymaris I'm so sorry I couldn't call you before because my cell phone had no signal in the plane." In this moment I felt my heart stop and I couldn't speak more. In just a second my mom says:"Lymaris open the door and come with mami!" I couldn't believe it! My husband brought my mom to me! I opened the door and I saw my beautiful mami with a lot of tears in her eyes and me too. I prepared to have an incredible time with her and I couldn't forget my dad too, but you know? Mami is mami. Well, it was only two weeks, but it was a fantastic time of my life. I will never forget my husband's intentions and his sweet love to me and the big one, see my mom again! Thank you my love :)

What a wonderful story ... and a wonderful reminder that just because you're making a new life here in America, nobody is asking you to forget where you came from ... or forget the loved ones who still live there. The best friends you can make are the ones who assure you that you can have it both ways.

Lilli; I am glad you had a chance to see your mom again, take care of her because as you said mami is mami. My mother die five years ago, and I still remember her a lot, you are very lucky.

What a gift, one that you will remember forever. I have a friend that wishes this would happen to her. She is from Brazil and has not seen or heard from her mother for 35 years. Very sad for her...but very happy for you.

Your story brought tears to my eyes. I live a long way from my mom too, and she and my dad came to visit me for my birthday. I'm so glad you got a nice long visit with your mom!
