Synonyms of "Sarah" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Sarah couldn't have got my message, Otherwise she would have replied. and I wonder why Sarah hasn't replied to my message. I suppose she might not have got it. ?
A: "Couldn't" means you're certain while "mightn't" means you're unsure.

In the first example, because Sarah hasn't replied, you're drawing the conclusion that she didn't get your message, and you're certain that that's the reason why.

In the second example, you're proposing that Sarah may not have received your message as a POTENTIAL reason why she hasn't replied, but you aren't sure whether this is true.
Q: What is the difference between I am a mum of Sarah. and I am Sarah's mum. ?
A: They mean almost the same thing. "I am a mum of Sarah" sounds very unnatural, because it sounds a bit like you are saying "a mum of Sarah" is something that anyone can be, so she might have many mums. "I am the mum of Sarah" is closer to the meaning, as there is only one, but still "I am Sarah's mum" is better grammar. In some cases though, it means exactly the same. For example:

1a. I am the mayor of London.
1b. I am London's mayor.
(Notice that in 1a I use "the", not "a", because there is only one mayor of London)

2a. I am a friend of your father.
2b. I am your father's friend.
Both are acceptable
