Your strength, courage and perseverance is what pushed you to emigrate to this country.

Raising six children alone was not easy. πŸ‘§πŸ½πŸ‘¦πŸ½πŸ‘§πŸ½πŸ‘¦πŸ½πŸ‘§πŸ½πŸ‘¦πŸ½

The sacrifices you made and the risks you took to give them and your grandchildren a better life did not go unseen.

I will be forever indebted to you for what you did for all of us: to provide a better, enriching life. Β πŸ™πŸ½β€οΈ

I take pride in having known you for just a short time.

But it was in that short time that I discovered your strength, determination, hard work and never giving up are all traits you have passed down to me.

I will continue to push towards achieving my goals and dreams, and will always look above to say “thank you” for being a part of my life and for guiding me in to who I am today. πŸ™‚

Te ExtraΓ±o Mucho, Grandma

On this day 33 years ago, my maternal grandmother died due to complications from having suffered a stroke. I still remember the day I found out that she had died. My older sister came to pick me up from my school in our father’s old Chevy Nova. As soon as she told me what had happened, tears rolled down my face. I wish I knew then what I know now about what a stroke is and its symptoms. 😦

Grandma, not a day goes by where I don’t think about you. I’m sad that I only knew you for a short time, but you inspire me everyday to continue accomplishing my goals and dreams. You also taught me that perseverance and hard work pays off. I love you and miss you. One day I’ll see you again. ❀️
