I am one of the many German students studying abroad. I am one of the people who love travelling. I can't sit still, I always have to do stuff. I am curious, always chasing for stories. Stay here for a while and be part of my respaced world

Respaced Mother's Day

My mom and me have a loving but sometimes also a bit mhmmm i wouldn't say hating, but how about... hot ?/ bursting(?)  relationship with each other :)
my sister and my dad say that's because we are both quiet similar, stuburn and emotional. We just like arguing I guess :) and none of us wants to give in when it's about "who's right'

Well, in the end I love my mom (though I hardly ever tell her) In Germany, you rarely say "I love you" to your parents, people say "Ich hab dich lieb", (I like you) when they want to express their affection to family members or friends. "Ich liebe dich" (I love you) is more an expression of the "Eros" kind of love, the kind of love which exists between couples.

So, how do you express your love to your mom on mother's day if you are on the other side of the world and you are not able to say "I love you" ?

Thank god there's amazon.de. Last week, I ordered a DVD, wrapped and with a personal message, which I sent to my sister's adress (I knew that if the package would arrive earlier than the 8th my mom would just unpack it). She gave it to her yesterday and this morning I found a thank-you email from my mom in my inbox. Oh, AND i even called her the same day. So am I a good daughter or what?

I owe my mom a lot. She's the one who has always supported me when I wanted to travel. She has been the sponsor of all my travelling. However, she really hates it. She likes wining about me "who always wants to leave her" and she never brings me to the airport, because she is pretty pissed when I leave. (It's always my dad driving me to the airport.)
Finally, I think my mom understands my travelling better than my dad does. She studied abroad, in Russia and later also in Germany. She moved from Budapest (Hungary) to Stuttgart when she married my dad. "I just came with one suitcase from Budapest! And it was fucking old!"
But that's another story....
