Her love is the purest of its kind. It's a type of love that is felt past any boundaries, any stretch of land, any mental state, any border dividing our countries. It is the strongest feeling I have ever felt. As if it was concentrated on purpose so I could have enough left to love the people around me. It is the most valuable inheritance I will ever receive. And the fuel for my small family here in the states. Today on her birthday all the flowers in the world aren't enough, all the kisses left in me aren't enough. Enough to repay for what she has done for us. I know I will make her proud. I won't stop until I do. Happy Birthday Abuelita.
She celebrates his Birthday, as He celebrates her Mother's Day. I could not ask for more exemplary parents. Their efforts and sacrifices are endless and they still manage to keep a smile on their faces to share with others. Their kindness is contagious, even on the worst of days. They lead by example. Their hearts are as warm as the coffee she makes him every morning. That is the best inheritance and all I would ever want to teach my own children.
I love you Mom and Dad!
