I just figured out why I am so teary today, ok, one of the reasons. It is my mother's birthday, well at least here in Korea. I know these dates are important, when we are born, when we die. I love the fact we are forever linked together and not just blood relatives but everyone we love. So, today I give a birthday wish to my mother, thanking her for one of the most important things she gave me: consistency. She always did what she said she would, always. I miss her.
