Honoring My Mother, Juanita Diaz
Mother’s Day is about loving mom for mothering us. It’s about loving mom for disciplining us, endless concerns, pushing us, and loving us. You truly are a reflection of a mother, I love your storytelling and where do I begin with your laugh; its contiguous to say the least. You’re there no matter what I’ve done to always say “It will be ok” and to always love and love selflessly. You model what helping others looks like. I love your face because its lighten up my life.
Thank you for reminding me how much beauty is around me and reminding me constantly when my world feels frightening. You taught me how to be diplomatic in conflict and see the best in people and when I had no choice but to fight, to fight fair. Thank you! I love you isn’t enough to express how grateful I am for you or how much you mean to me.
