(I love you)
Mother’s day is fast approaching and I have a present to give to my mother figure. That person is my grandmother, since she is the only woman I have received love and compassion from. My grandmother raised me with the love she was never able to give to her kids; she was always working. Maybe that is why she spoils me so much; it’s a way of showing her love for all her children. Anyway, my mother began leaving me with my grandmother at nine days old. My mother came back from time to time, but she usually just left me in my grandmother’s care. I don’t remember much, but what I do remember is my grandmother always being there for me.
So maybe this Mother’s Day you won’t be giving something special to your birth mother, but the real mothers in your life, the ones which raise you with the same love they would give to their own children. My life would have been so very different without my grandmother; I probably wouldn’t even be alive if it wasn’t for her, so “Gracias Nana por todo.”
