I am so sad to say this but I lost my Abuela on Friday. She had been sick for awhile and passed from complications on a procedure she had done on Thursday.
She was my last living grandparent and with it being so close to the baby’s arrival, it has been a bit emotional for me.
She was thoughtful, religious, generous and loving.
My dad sent me this photo and said, “Before she was your Abuela”. Sometimes I am intrigued to know how our grandparents really were before they ever became parents.
My aunt told me yesterday that just two weeks ago my Abuela asked her to take her to a store so she could buy a silk orchid for me. She wanted to send it to me when the baby was born so I had it at the house waiting for me. She got to pick it out and everything. I will definitely treasure that forever.
