This past Sunday was my mom´s birthday, she turned beautiful 71 years old!!! I have been thinking what I wanted to write in this post... and to tell you the truth I have been a little overwhelmed by feelings and emotions lately, so that I didn´t want this post to be overly sentimental. My mom... there is no way I can get the cliche out of the phrase ¨my mom is the best in the whole world¨ because to me is not a cliche, it is the absolute truth! Of the things I love most about her is how she raised us to be strong women, women capable of loving and being loved, women who think can conquer the world from wherever they are standing. She taught us by example to see beauty anywhere, she taught us to bloom! My mom is an example of generosity, happiness, selfishness, love, compassion, understanding.... I love how she is able to love without judging and without expecting really nothing in return. Well anyways.... that is my mom... the best one!
And then, my mom is the best grandma ever... the cool thing is that she doesn´t do the typical grandma stuff with her kids, she is just her plain beautiful self, and her grandchildren no matter how young they are, know it! Here is a letter that my niece Thelma wrote to her for her birthday (I translated it the best I could trying to keep it as real as the one in Spanish). I think that after this I need to say no more! Happy birthday mom! I am so happy to be your daughter!
Here is the letter:
Happy birthday! Hope you have a wonderful and fun day... enjoy!!!! Today is the most special day of all! I think of you every time I think of good things, you are an example to follow, you are good to everyone, you help everyone as if it was a gift you were receiving, you put everyone before yourself all the time. I want you to know that every January 25th I think of you every second of the day. You are everything to me, you are my role model, you are the one that inspires me to be a better person. You are beautiful, spectacular, on the inside and on the outside. Every time I am going to do something good or bad, I think first what you would say, you always give good advise to everyone and specially to me. Thank you so much for helping me in everything, and for being good to me in good times and in bad times.
I also want you to know that on January 25th, 1944, I was a little angel in heaven, and as an angel I was so happy to see that such a beautiful person had been born, and right then I decided that I wanted to be your oldest grand daughter. Beautiful Abi I wish you the best! Today is your day ,and my only wish is that we get to enjoy many more birthdays and that when I grow old I want to be as beautiful as you, I want to help the world following your example.
You are my all, my daily inspiration, and the one that makes me smile every time I feel blue. You are like the last diamond on earth, so special and unique. To sum it up.. I love you with unexplainable frenzy, and I wish you the best!
Happy birthday Abi!
and of course you know we couldn´t sing happy birthday just once!
