Remembering my mother this Mother’s Day and Äitienpäivä, here in Canada and in Finland, US and a few other countries. I still miss her almost every day even after 20 years since her passing.

On this sunny afternoon, I’m eagerly looking forward to a salmon bbq and dessert with our three daughters, two little granddaughters and the men in our family. I am so lucky. We’re also celebrating youngest daughter’s birthday (actually tomorrow), a Mother’s Day baby 23 years ago!

Wishing everyone a happy day, remembering your mother and/or a mother figure dear to you. If you are a mother, enjoy your family today.
