Mother's Day..

The summer I was six my older sister reduced me to tears by telling me the gypsies had left me on the doorstep and that mom & dad had only taken me in because they had to. I didn't belong in the family and no one loved me because I was just a gypsy.
When I was sixteen I desperately hoped that I had been left on the doorstep by gypsies and that I didn't belong to the family.About ten years ago my father showed me this picture of my mother and said that it might be hard to deny that I belonged to the family...

On a day like today when I think of how lucky I am to belong to my mother, how I wish I was more like her, how much I love her. I am so grateful the gypsies left me on her doorstep.
