The women in my family all have a strong presence in my life. All my aunts treated all us kids as their own. It is really great coming from such a tight-knit family. My grandmother, the matriarch of the family was like the supreme mom figure in our lives. She took care of us when our parents were working. She taught us about our roots. She taught us to love one another and to be good kids (for the most part).
My family is so important to me.
With my grandmother being in the hospital, I wish I could still be with her. I’m sending all my love and positive thoughts, and prayers for some peace and no more pain for her. I love you so much, Lola.
Mom, Happy Mother’s Day to you too! This will be the first time in a long time that we haven’t spent Mother’s Day together. Hubby and Dad usually take us out for a lovely meal and shower us with love and affection. This year, you are on the other side of the world.
Thank you for everything you’ve done for us. Wish we could be with you on Mother’s Day as well. We’ll see you when you return from the Philippines. Love you.
