To the sweetest love I have ever known. I could run out of words, I could run out of prayers and my heart would still attempt to captivate what you mean to me. You embodied strength, courage, resilience. I am deeply honored to call you mother sweet love of mine. A lifetime isn’t long enough to thank you for every drop of sweat tears and blood you sacrificed for us. I honor you daily, with every breath, with every prayer. Most importantly I honor you today, happy birthday Hilda. I love you forever, miss you dearly.
