Mama just turned 63 this month and I missed her even more. I wish I could go back home and stay with her for a while. It's hard being away for so long. I have been encouraging my Mom to come over but she doesn't want to. She said that she might not be able to survive the long flight and seeing the winter scene here, she said she would sure not survive living here.
I am glad to see new photos of her and other family at my sister's facebook page. This was taken yesterday at my paternal relatives place. Mama and my two siblings have visited them. The volcano you see on the background is the Mayon volcano, a very active volcano in Bicol region. I kind of relate my Mom to this volcano because she is very active and never want to stop doing things.
My nephews and nieces are getting so big. I don't think they will know me when we visit and they were born when I was here already.
