"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Love is Eternal

My sweet "Abuela Fefa"

Six years ago today, my loving grandmother went home to be with our Lord and Savior. It was her 90th birthday. The picture above was taken at the last big event we shared, our wedding, 9 months prior to her passing away.

I am so thankful that I have my faith which allows me to believe that I will be reunited with her someday. She's been gone for six years and there's rarely a day that I don't think about her. I very often think about how much she and my grandfather would have loved our new little ones. My heart believes that she is smiling from above at their antics and sharing in our joy.

She was an amazing lady who catered to my three older babies as if they were her own. They, too, cherished her.

Oh, how I wish that Kai, Anna Grace and AJ would have had the chance to know this remarkable woman. I look forward to sharing my stories about her with them.

Abuela, Happy 96th Birthday! I know you are celebrating with Jesus, pain free and surrounded by more love and joy than you could ever receive in this earthly world.
I love and miss you!

Ohilda,
What a beautiful grandmother! I know how much you must miss her. My grandmother is still with us, but her mind is gone....she no longer knows who I am...and I miss her so much! I hope you have a peaceful day, my friend.
Love,
Monica

What a wonderful tribute to your Grandmother. My Grandmother turns 98 this year and I know how blessed I am.
She is smiling from above and watching your children.
