Happy Birthday!

This sweet boy is turning 15. I can’t believe how fast time goes by. Last night we went to celebrate his birthday at a restaurant and as I watch him looking at the menu all these memories of this little boy came in a flash.

Time is flying. As I get older this summer, I turn 62 I come to realize Where am I at this point in my life? Besides thinking of retirement next year. I know I have plenty of ideas I would like to do.

I feel my life has been a blessing with ups and downs. I have a job that I loved, a home, 38 years of marriage with a lovely husband, and my children and grandchildren. What else do I want? Hm… I still think of that little boy holding on to my knees, wanting to be picked up. I don’t want to feel I’m running out of time. Do I?

For now, happy birthday to my grandson. He deserves the best of the best.  This boy has a caring heart. He cares about everyone in his life. We are important to him. He’s loving, compassionate, and incredibly smart. He’s a blessing in our life.

“Live your life and forget your Age.”  

I love this quote. This is the way I feel today is my birthday. Oh my God, I turn 57 and I never thought I would survive. When I was 48 and diagnosed with breast cancer I felt I would die. I was afraid for my kids accomplish and my husband. My mother passed away at the young age of 48. Today looking in the mirror, I feel grateful for my life. I’m cancer free and enjoying my babies. My mother didn’t have the chance to meet and adore her 13 grandkids and 14 great grandkids.
My plans for today a trip to the Zoo and have a fantastic time with my four grandkids. I’m sure we will have fun. My husband would be taking me to dinner and we picked Thai food.
I am grateful for having a wonderful life and I hope to keep it this way.

I’m Blessed!

It’s my birthday and through my Facebook page I’m getting birthday wishes. If it wasn’t for social media I wouldn’t get any unless is a family member or a close friend. Also I wouldn’t know about whose birthdays, anniversaries, or was going on in their lives. Thanks to social media, we keep a connection with the people we care.


After a wonderful day with my three grandkids I got the most precious gift from my youngest son. I’m going to be a grandma again. This will be his first baby and my fourth grandbaby. We both cry and I gave him a big hug. I’m feeling blessed.

Happy Birthday to me….

Happy birthday, to me. Today I’m 54 and happily for another year full of blessings. Maybe I’m feeling a little bit old, but I can say that hearing my granddaughters in the morning with a simple “happy birthday grandma” and “I love you” is the best gift I can get. My husband got me my two favorite books of all time “Maria” by Jorge Isaac and”La Casa de Bernarda Alba” by Federico Garcia Lorca. I’m thrilled.

My oldest son who is 29 shows up with my favorite wine. Then, my daughter who is 27 brings a basket full of makeup and my youngest who is 22 with a beautiful plant. They have been spoiling me like crazy. What more I can ask. My husband has planned to cook my favorite meal. My grandkids already have the music on. I think their dancing the Gangnam style. I can’t forget the chocolate cake, blowing my candles, and making my wish.

Thank you to my family and friends who are always there for me. This day has started with happiness and blessings. I love you.
