Dear February Women

This is dedicated to three of the most special women in my life...
In chronological order;
My mother (born on the 25th of February)
My best friend (24th)
My sister. (21st)

Dear Salma,

I don't know how it was like before you were born, I have no idea what we have in common, but I know we have a life in common- regardless of what we do and preach and practice. We could be reflections of the same identity maybe? But..happy 21st. Thank you for being born early enough for us to be able to gang up against anyone! Ha!


Dear Menna,

We go through shit. And we make it through. Thank you for being you. And for stepping into 22 soon enough to keep me company!I don't think I can think of enough words, so I thought this should do.


Dear Mummy,

Happy **th birthday! tehe! Sometimes I am thankful for a young mother...even though sometimes it's not such a good thing that you can text (long, long texts), facebook message, email and all those things most mothers aren't really into. Oh and thank you for giving birth to the best sisters and brothers in the world. And for being proud of me. You are a good mother. EEEEK I can't believe I just said that.

Love to you all,
Sara

PS The photo is dedicated to all three of you. Love you!

That's could be counted as the most thoughtful birthday present i ever got.
I love you more than I can tell.

Sara, if I had a daughter I'd be so proud if she turned out like you. You're so sweet to your friends and family. ♥

I'll be celebrating along with your mom, because we were born on the same day. You have me wondering now if we're the same age (I'll be 45).

That's really sweet, taking the time to write to those 3 important women in your life. I should do things like that more often I think. xx

That is so lovely Sara. Of course, as a mother myself, I felt touched that a daughter could write such words to her mum. Pass the Kleenex.

If she's anything like her daughter I'm sure she's a beautiful person. :)
