Today is a bittersweet day for me.
2 years ago today, on my birthday, I attended my
grandmother's funeral. She meant the world to me and
her absence left a void that is still at times unbearable.
She was the woman that raised me and embraced me
when others failed me. She was my best friend, my
confidant, my everything. I miss her so much.
But even through my moments of sorrow I praise
God for blessing me with 46 years of her love
and for giving me such a wonderful husband who
loves me and cares for me the same way she did.
My abuelita left happy knowing I am in good hands,
not only with my husband but because she knew I had
come to know the Lord and that my faith in Him
will get me through whatever life throws my way.
I have my moments, but they are getting to be less
frequent. I don't mourn her death, for she lived a
very healthy 83 years and I know she's in a better
place, what I mourn is her absence from those of
us who still long for her presence.
I found this video by my favorite artist ever.
I've seen her several times in concert, she is so amazing.
So I am dedicating this song to me, on my birthday.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
