My thoughts these past few days have been of all the wonderful moments I shared with my abuelita. Sadly my grandma passed away this last Sunday. She was 101 years old! And while I’m very sad that I won’t get to talk to her, I am also quite grateful that I had just traveled to Monterrey to visit her the weekend before.
Despite not living in the same country, my abuelita came to visit us often and I spent many summers with her while I was growing up. For the past few years I’ve had a weekly Sunday call with her. My abuelita shared many stories with me and I will always treasure those.
Of course life keeps moving forward. There are several events going on around town, mainly the Texas Book Festival which I had planned to attend, but now I think I may just try to rest up after the two back-to-back trips to Monterrey. We’ll see how I feel tomorrow.
So, hold your loved ones close and do something good for yourself this weekend. I’m slowly surfacing so I hope to get back to blogland soon.
