I don't know about you, but my older brother and I were raised by my kick-ass single mom who juggled 2 jobs, caring after her ill mom, and being the rock of our family.
My childhood consisted of watching and re-watching love stories on tv, our favorites... Sleepless in Seattle (anything with Sandra Bullock), 13 Going on 30, Hitch, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and our personal favorite Mama Mia. Now I am a bit older in university and want to do something extra special for my mom as I haven't seen her in nearly a year.
She never found the love of her life in my dad and in the midst of some less than special and undeserving men in her life, she is facing yet another break-up today. I wish I could help my mom find her 'one', but my goal is to take her mind off of the heartbreak she is feeling, and show her how special she is to everyone who knows her.
Mission: 1 week on the Greek island of Skopelos (where Mama Mia was filmed) - flights, lodging, meals -- all included.
This would really mean the world to me, my words here are not doing my feelings any justice. But trust me when I say my mom is the most thoughtful, caring, selfless, and accepting woman I have ever met.
Let's give love another chance. Cheers to the die-hard romantics out there, my hugs to you all for taking the time to read this.
