Mothers Day never meant much to me until I had my own child. As my beautiful daughter Cièlle turned 3 years old on the 25th of March, a few days after Mothers Day is celebrated in the Middle East, I found myself writing her a letter reflecting my thoughts at the moment and that I hope can get better year after year.
