To My Mom

Happy Mother's Day Mom
I don't know many mothers out there who's been through the things in life you have and have come through with such humour.  To some I have told and often to myself I recall how during the Khmer Rouge era in Cambodia you went through periods of exhausting labor and starvation while pregnant with me. I tear up everytime I think and as I'm writing this about how dad describes it as a miracle that we came to the US when we did so you could get proper treatment for your illness.  He said we would have lost you soon after and John would have never been born. It makes me sad but even more it makes me grateful I have you and I can still be able to hear your laughter.    

Love you Mom.
