The one thing I’ve missed most about my mum is her laugh

My mum lives in Ghana and my sister and I were due to visit her this summer with our children. There are so many things I miss about my mum, but if I had to choose one thing, it’s the laughter. When we are together, we get up to all sorts of mischief and we laugh, loudly, hard and uncontrollably until we are crying and short of breath. Every time I think of my mum I laugh.
