Different From Ordinary

Last week was the birthday of my mother. She and my dad moved to Merida almost 2 years ago and they thouroughly enjoy living there.
A few months ago, she started a blog with stories of her childhood during WWII, her memories of Ninove - the city in Belgium where she was born, grew up, married, and eventually moved out of. My parents moved to Aalst - a larger city 15 km away from Ninove -when I was 3, to start a new business. 25 years later they emigrated to Canada, the USA and finally settled in Mexico. She writes in the Flemish language. Her story recently appeared in 2 newspaper articles in Belgium where her blog is gathering a growing number of readers.

Congratulations, mom! and Happy Birthday!
