I guess that part of me doesn't quite feel like it is Mother's Day today, or if I do, I don't quite feel like celebrating. It has been two years now since my grandmother passed away and I don't yet feel like I've said goodbye. She is certainly missed, and today that is what I remember. I thank God my mom is alive and well, but I also know my mom is thinking the same. My grandmother made quite an impression on our lives; she was a strong, beautiful woman who always fought and loved and cared. She was a true example; she always had a smile on her face and coffee on the pot, and if we didn't like coffee she would have juice. She loved angels, and she called all her grandchildren the angels of her life. Today, I smile and cry in her memory. I miss her greatly! All of us miss her greatly. And, although on a sad tone, today I got to go to the cemetery and I got to visit where she and my grandpa were buried. I am glad I have such a strong loving family who stick together. I am glad we all got together there to say goodbye to 'Padrino' but also to visit Maci. I hope that wherever she is, she is laughing and smiling and cooking!
I wish a Happy Mother's Day to all the great moms out there, to all the women who set an example for someone, to all the women who teach because in a way we are all mothers.
