Happy Birthday Mami Tita!


Today, I want to just wish my great-grandma, my Mami Tita, a very happy birthday.  Today, she turns 86 and I feel so blessed to have had all of the time I’ve had with her so far.  She’s been there since my birth and, even though there have been times where we’ve been hundreds of miles apart, she has always been a huge part of my life.  We’ve shared laughs, tears, and so many unforgettable moments together.  My great-grandma can be one of the sweetest ladies in the world with her generosity and sincere love.  Anyone can fall in love with her tender smile that’s filled with a max of three teeth, but, then again, she can be a riot.  Most recently, she was in the states with us for the holidays and we saw her intense addiction to the casino, taught her how to make it rain, and experienced her uncontrollable stubborness… but, hey, it gives her character!  Either way I love my Mami Tita from the bottom of my heart and I am so grateful for the close bond that we have today.  I consider myself lucky to be wishing my great-grandma a very happy birthday today.

Happy Birthday Mami Tita!
