Most of you know that my mom had MS but regardless she was a great mom.  My mother had a very difficult life and faced many obstacles.  She was born in Bolivia and her family was poor.  She said she didn’t have sufficent food to eat and her dad was abusive.

Unfortunately my mother married my father who was also abusive and a cheater on top of that.  My parents divorced when I was 2 so I really don’t have any recollection of living with my dad.

My mom was an excellent cook, everything was made from scratch.  She also was a seamstress and made me some beautiful dresses when I was a little girl.  She ensured I received the BEST education by putting me in a private school from first grade until 12th grade.

She had a wonderful green thumb and we were always surrounded by beautiful plants like African violets, geraniums, pointsettas, prayer plants, etc.  

She was there for me literally 24/7.  My mom never ever went anywhere.  I don’t ever remember having a babysitter.  We shared a bedroom when I was growing up.  She was always home when I came home from school.

My two brothers, my mom, and I went to church every Sunday.  Most Fridays we would pray the Rosary in Spanish.  Spanish was the first language I ever spoke.  Unfortunately my Spanish is fading though.

She learned to speak English on her own.  She watched shows like I love Lucy and had books like Aprendemos Ingles (Let’s Learn English).

She was a wonderful Mom and I miss her so much.  For those of you who are still blessed to have your moms with you, enjoy this special day with them.
