Last Goodbye...

 A couple of weeks ago I had gotten a phone call from family in Puerto Rico that my grandmother was very sick and was probably in her last days of life.  My heart ached as this was a very special lady.  She was the sweetest person and was loved by so many people.  I contemplated for days about going to see her; I knew it would be difficult to take the kids.  But my wonderful husband, along with my amazing neighbor, Migdalia, and her daughter, Migna, took care of things at home so that I could fly to Puerto Rico.  Thank you guys so much!!!  You are a true blessing!  I arrived Wednesday night into Puerto Rico and went straight to the hospital from the airport.  Although it was a short visit with my grandmother, it will be one I will cherish forever!  Not only did she recognize me and call my name, but as I was leaving, she blew me a kiss as I told her "Te quiero mucho!"  I will hold that image of her in my mind forever as the next morning she passed away.  I am at peace because she lived a full life and is no longer suffering on the hospital bed.  Although she will be extremely missed, she is in a better place now.  And that gives me peace!

On a brighter note, I was finally able to meet my beautiful baby niece, Brianna.  She is so adorable and looks so much like her "Titi Nancy"  hehe!  Here a couple pics I took of her:




I must say, although I enjoyed seeing all my family in Puerto Rico again.  I am soooooooo  happy to be home.  The weather was so miserable.  Jazlyn was miserable.  I was miserable.  It is nice to be back in my nice air conditioned home again with my beautiful family.
