As I sit here, eating my english muffin with lot’s of butter on it , I know what today is…..I want it to be a happy day, and remember the good times we had with Aris. Being a mother, I can imagine what my aunt Azucena is going through right now, as well as my cousins. I don’t know what I would do if I where to ever get a phone call saying that my daughter or son has passed away, specially being in a totally different country. Not being able to hold them and make everything better.
Imagine having to travel 8 long hours so that you can see your son in a coffin…and then having to bring him back to be buried in his home land.
A mother’s love is unlike any other love…and although we hold it in , be strong, the pain will always be there. I remember when we went to pick up my aunt at the airport. We all had swollen eyes from crying so much, but she didn’t.. She was calm, smiling……crying in the inside. My cousin Mariazu was calm also. She was so close to Aris…we all looked up to him. We just talked about all the things he did, remembered great times we had.
When we where young, Aris recorded himself telling fairy tale stories for his brother Francisco lol….I can still hear his voice…I remember he was the first person to tell me about reggaeton , and he would show me his dance moves lol….Always in my heart you will be, until we see each other again.
I have said many times, that baking puts me into another world. I do alot of thinking when I bake and decorate. It makes me happy.
I made these cookies for a birthday boy, who is celebrating his 1st birthday 🙂
One year in this world..he has many more to live. He’s just starting, as my kids are too. We can take care of our kids, protect them…but sometimes things happen that we can’t control. Everyone has lost someone at some point….all we can do is make them come alive with the memories we have, and always, always have them in our hearts.
Happy Friday! Love to all…hug your loved ones and tell them how much you love them!
