You should have been born with wings, my wonderful grandma, my loving abuelita. We have been so blessed to have you in our lives.
Your words of wisdom have not been ignored, for I have learned so much from you. The advice you have given me has helped me make good choices and make the decisions about right things to do.
You provided me with the understanding that things will be glorious at times as well as difficult and disappointing. This advice has guided me through some very challenging times.
Your love of God and strong faith is what you speak out to us. I have listened. You promised me it would work, and I believed you.
I have walked the pathway that you directed me to and everything you said has been true. This has made me a better person and it’s all because of you.
When I think of love, you come to mind. I have so many memories of you I would like to rewind.
My memories of my childhood make me feel so grateful. You provided me with your safety, your nurturing words, and your loving touch. You always took care of me, for that I feel thankful.
“Are you sure, Grandma, you weren’t born with wings? Are you hiding them? I know you are.”
“Grandma, please show them to me, just as you have shown me everything else in my life.”
With all my love,
Your grateful grandchild,
