Being an only child, I didn't have any other family but my mom and dad really, since the rest of my family lived quite far away from London.
I don't want to get burned when I'm cooking. To avoid getting hit when pan-frying, I stand far away and use chopsticks that are almost two feet long. I learned it from my mom, who does the same thing.
Once you're a mom, whether you're kids are next to you or far away from you, you're always a mom.
When I was far away, when I prayed every night, I felt I was very near with my heart, with my brain, to my sisters and my mom.
Away, you mouldy rogue, away!
Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife.
It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding.
