On Mother`s Day in the U.S., llana and I are remembering our moms (my mother, Betty and her mother, Ruth).

These incredible women sacrificed so much, supported us unconditionally, and loved us fiercely throughout our lives.

We miss them today and every day.

Happy Mother`s Day to our moms, and to all moms.
