When I was little, people used to always ask me “What do you want to be when you grow up?” 

I wanted to be just like MY MOM.

My mom was the first to give me love.

My mom showed me love.

My mom named me with love in mind.


🎶 My Cherie amour….by Stevie Wonder

My mom loved bright colors.

I love bright colors.

My mom loved fashion, which she learned from her mom- Mi Abuela.

My mom taught me the love of cooking, which she also learned from her mom- Mi Abuela.

Mi Abuela cooked from scratch. She didn’t measure. It was always a pinch of this or a dab of that. She didn’t write anything down; everything was from her knowledge. 

My mom, on the other hand, measured and wrote it all down.

To this day, I cannot go to a potluck without someone saying “Did you bring your FAMOUS MAC&CHEESE?!”😍 “Yes.”, I would say. “It’s my mom’s Mac&Cheese. And yes, IT’S FAMOUS!”

My mom loved books and reading books.

I love books and reading books. I even belong to two Book Clubs.

I discovered one specific book that I shared with my mom. And it became OUR BOND.

The book is titled LOVE YOU FOREVER by Robert Munsch.

It’s about a mother and her child. Or, depending on how you look at it, it’s about a child and their mother.
In the hospital this LAST time, I held my mom’s hand. 

She looked at me and said “Don’t cry.”

“I’m tryin’, Madré. I’m tryin.”, I replied.


I continued to hold her hand and said to her “Madré, do you want to sing?!”

And she said yes.

So, we sang together….
¡Besitos a mi Madré!

    1. Thanks, love. Every minute is a roll of the dice. I’m ok, but then someone says something to me and I start to cry. Or, I hear a song and can’t hold back the tears. Wooooaaaaah. It’s hard. This wasn’t supposed to happen now. She went in for a gallbladder surgery and ended up having an infection afterwards. She got sepsis. They said she didn’t have it, but she did. And when they figured it out, it was no turning back. 😭
      Her birthday Is Friday, too. 💔 As I told her, I’m trying. I’m trying not to cry.😪


      1. Thank you so much, Darlin’! 💕 I hope so, too.
        I know we all pass. Yet, I expected it to be because of her MS disease or living a long life, but not from an infection after gallbladder surgery. 😪
        Wooooaaah 💔
