HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam
On a day like today, Mother’s Day, we decided that it would only be
appropriate hat our fourth postcard from Vietnam be sent to all of
our moms. Below are notes from each of us to the special mothers in
Happy Mother’s Day from Vietnam. I don’t think I can thank you
enough for all you do. You’re amazing. I love you so much!

(My dear mom,
On this special day, I would like to wish you a happy mother’s day.
I wish you health and happiness and a smile every day.
Wioleta Leszczynska #14)
Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you’re having a great day and I’m sorry
I can’t be there with you. You know how much you mean to me and I
would be nowhere today without your love and support. I am so
fortunate to have a mother like you and I think about you every
day. I love you so much and will see you soon.

Happy Mother’s Day! You don’t know how much I miss you. I’m only
three hours away from home right now and if I have a chance I will
come home and see you. Enjoy your day!

Even though we are so very far away, I want to wish you a Happy
Mother’s Day and I also want to say that I miss you so much every

Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you manage to save some of the food I
sent you because I know you love your sweets! I love you. I’m sad
that I can’t be with you yet another Mother’s Day but I know father
will treat you well today.
Love your sojourner,

Shalom to all the ladies in my family.
Although it is not Mother’s Day in Israel, I don’t need a special
day to think of you, love you and to tell you that. Today was a
good day. Despite the fact that we lost to Kazakhstan, we played
well and I wish you could be here to see me play. I know you would
be proud. Ima, just this small word means so much to me. I think of
you every day and wish we could be as physically close to each
other as emotionally. You are my rock, my support, my meaning for
love, giving, sharing and my model for succeeding.
Always in my heart,
