Happy Mother's Day!

Since I cannot seem to get in touch (Where are you???) with either my Mom or Jignesh's Mom, I thought I would write a brief blog to let them know that I (we) are thinking about them on this special day. It is occasions like these that make me rethink this whole living abroad idea. I would love nothing more than to be home right now celebrating Mother's Day at the lake in Tennesse or with a huge Indian meal in Chicago. Jignesh and I are both very blessed to have such incredible Mothers who have done and continue to do so much for us. I also know that we do not tell say this enough. Being a parent is one of the most difficult and selfless jobs that an individual can take on and our Moms have nailed it.

To my Mom...I miss you so much. I don't think you realize how much our phone calls brighten my day. You are not only an incredible Mom but an incredible person. I truly appreciate all that you have given up for me, Jennifer, and Lauren.

To Gita...Thank you for doing whatever you did to make Jignesh such a wonderful person and husband. I am eternally grateful and consider you my Mom.

To Grandmom...At 90 years old, you continue to amaze me every single day with your energy for life. You are an inspiration to us all and I miss you dearly.

We miss and love you all so much it hurts. Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Cheers!
