Happy Birthday, Mia Bella Mamma Maria.....

Tomorrow, April 16th.... is my beautiful mama's 64th Birthday!

I look at my mamas pictures....and I look at every nuance that is her....and I try to find eyes, my lips, my nose, my chin, no, nope...I don't see it, I don't see me in her beauty...BUT.....ask anyone and they will tell you....I have her strength, her sense of humor and her wickedly strong ability to hold a grudge and never forget the things I want to remember...notice I say...the things I want to remember lol

If I could grant her, her biggest wish....I would in a heart beat...without her even asking....I see it in her eyes...I hear it in her voice....I feel it in her quiet laughter...I would give her....just a few more precious moments with her own beautiful beloved Ita and her beloved husband Sonny...But I know that they are all around us...we can feel them.....loving her now, as they did back when a simple touch could make a memory to last in our hearts forever.

But God has a way of lessening the pain along the way, so that small miracles like holding your first great~grand bebe, can make your heart beat strong once again with the hope of many more beautiful tomorrows....

Feliz Cumple Anos mama...le deseamos un ano lleno de amor, felicidad con familia y queridos amigos siempre con nosotros, haciendonos siempre sonreir ....

(I know I more than likely totally butchered that, how in the world do you add accent marks above the letters?? lol, but she knows, it is full of love from her girls, My sister Celeste & me, my amor Chris, all your grand bebes, and our entire family & friends that love and adore you ALWAYS! )

Happy Birthday Maria!!!!!

Thank you all for allowing me this special lil moment to honor my bella mama,

Until next time dear friends,

Hi Rose. Awwww! She is beautiful! Happy Birthday to your mama! What a blessing she is! And Rose! You're not going to believe this! My mama's name is Maria too! And I say "is" because she is still my mama. Even if she is in heaven now. :)
Ay Rose. Le deseo un feliz cumpleano a tu mama.

Your Momma is just so beautful and I see you in her! Sometimes it's not just the nose or mouth, but the "essence" of who you are.
Happy Birthday to your Momma, I know you ALL are celebrating!

happy birthday mamma maria said...

Oh Sweetie,
I have tears, noooo not hokey at all. From your heart as always. It makes me sad, missing my own Mommy. Funny my mom had the same 'do' with painted on eyebrows only my mom also added the Liz Taylor mole drawn in on her chin. I'll have to send you the pictue. I love the picture of her at mass with her veil & cross. And holding your baby. Very sweet post, you need to show her. Lisa

How have you been? Life is sweet, sometimes tough, but always sweet. Thank you for your kind words my dearest! Have a beautiful weekend and fun with momma! Anita

Ana Maria said...

Dear Rose,
Love your blog and today's post brought tears to my eyes.

Here's a cheat sheet on how to put accents on the letters:

Click and hold down Alt key, then click on the numbers on the right-hand side of your keyboard:

160 = á (For Mamá)
130 = é (For Bebé)
161 = í (For Felíz)
162 = ó (For Corazón
163 = ú (For Cucú)(my bird's name)
164 = ñ (For Cumpleaños)(Año)
165 = Ñ
168 = ¿ (For ¿Como estás?)
173 = ¡ (For ¡Gracias!)

Alt 135 (For the French ç)
Alt 136 (For the French ê)
Alt 138 (For the French è)

Many blessings to you and your entire family
Ana María

Who is more beautiful, the mother or the daughter? I cannot choose that is for sure!
