M-O-M, a three letter word that has a profound meaning, especially today. From the moment that the clock struck midnight, my timelines have been filled with lovely mom stories and wishes.
On a day like this, my heart goes out to all who are moms without children and children without moms. Whatever the reason might be, it is a bittersweet day for them.
All I want to do is to send these people a ray of sunshine, simply because they deserve it.

I've had the privilege of being around the world and I have witnessed that freedom is not something you should ever take for granted. No matter where I've been or went, whenever I return to my hometown, there's this 'coming home' feeling surrounding me. Which means that I'm back at a place that has given me so much to be thankful for and a place where I feel safe.
As us Dutch are celebrating our Liberation Day today, I truly hope that everybody has a place where he/she feels safe, free and a place that you can call home.

Some of my friends have been raving about the movie American Sniper the last couple of weeks. I haven’t had time to watch movies lately, but they told me that this is really one to watch. I found out that it was based on a true story and an autobiography of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. I decided to read the book before watching the movie.
