My mother gave birth to me 57 years ago today.
Today is a perfect day to celebrate this amazing women.
This is El Escudo De Puerto Rico (The Seal of Puerto Rico)
A proud, strong Puerto Rican women who had dreams of Puerto Rican Independence.
She never went to college but had more insight, intelligence and wisdom than all of the professors I had when I went to college.
She worked hard in a hot hospital kitchen to give me the best life anyone could ask for.
When I was planning a family she put her life aside to care for my girls.
When she past in 1990 I spent many years working on being like Mom and came to the understanding that she lived her life making me ME.
I miss her more than I can say and as I write this I am filling my healing vase with tears.
