I have noticed that time does not really exists for mothers, with regards to their children. It does not matter, really, how old the child is - in the blink of an eye, the mother can see the child again as it was when it was born, when it learned to walk, as it was at any age - at any time, even if the child is fully grown and a parent itself. Especially when they are asleep, you can see the baby then.
I am reading Voyager from Diana Gabaldon and these words caught me. Wala lang, feel ko pa rin kasi ang Mother's Day, although today is Father's Day here in Germany.
