Today is my mother in laws birthday. She is no longer with us but she will always live in our hearts…She was such a wonderful woman. A woman of strength, kindness, compassion and love. I did not speak spanish and her english was very little but we spoke to each other with our hearts. I look back now and wish I had not always been so rushed, so short with her at times…..Things we always think after we lose someone that we love. We wish we had spent more time with them, said nicer things, really valued who they were to us but often times we get so busy in our own little world that we forget that they will not always be there and then we live in regret after they are gone….I do not want to live that way anymore… I want to love those in my life with all that I have and I want them to know how much they are cherished and what an impact they have had on me as a person. There are just those certain people that just leave you better than when they found you and she was one of those people in my life….I say mother in law but she was not just that to me, she was my second momma and a HUGE part of my life for 22 years…She never judged me, always accepted me and did so much for me…She raised her son to be the man he is today….The husband, the father and the friend that so many people love and respect. He is my life and my world and he is in so many ways like his mother….Thank you Momma for being you and for always loving me even when I did not deserve that love. I honor your birthday today because I honor you…Love you always.
