Think about my Angels








Now that i am going to be a mother I cant help but to feel bittersweet in a way. Since my parents aren't going to be part of my baby's life. i know they will be there in spirit but it is not the same thing. i envy my husband for having his parents around. there is nothing more in the world i would want but for my baby to have is grandpa and gramma. for my baby to taste my mothers wonderful cooking, to get to know how sweet and understanding she was. if i am at least half as great as my mommy as a mother i would be content. she was one of the most loving and forgiving person i have ever met. i just feel that we have been robbed. my baby has been robbed of having wonderful grandparents. there really isn't anyone like my parents. my dad was a strong man with a strong character and strong work ethics. always there for his girls making sure the homework was done and that we helped our mom out.




Most of my close friends now that i had to go throw all theses years but for people who are new to my life or this blog this is what happened to my parents. My father passed away from a heart attack back in August 2002. at that time i was 16 years old my mother had battle Cancer for about 12 years. it was devastating for me. we had never had anyone died in our family in years. my mother was very sick and depressed after my father passed. months later my mother lost her battle to cancer on November 2002. how was this possible? how could this have happen to us?!? We were good people we always did the right thing. My mother was a devoted catholic who was always positive and knew god would save her. My sisters and I








the hard part for me was remembering my mother before she passed away. she wouldn't sleep because she didn't want to die in her sleep. she didn't want to leave her girls alone. i thought to myself no god cant do this to me it is not fare. he cant take her away too but he did. he took her too and i was alone with my sisters but i felt so alone. my sisters are older than me. i was still a teenager i still needed them there, not that my sisters didn't but i was still a kid. after my mom passed away i had very mixed emotions about god. to be honest i was angry at him. he had left us alone. for me the hardest moment in my life was coming back after the funeral. i felt so lost, what do i do now. i didn't know if life would go on...how could it, life as i knew it was gone.








and of course life does go on. i went back to school and graduated with a 3.50 GPA. now that i am older i understand that they where both in pain and that they are in a better place now. but there are moments like this that i miss them more than anything in this world. that i wish i could call them for advice. i know this feeling will always come in special moments like when i graduated high school, got married and now having a baby. mom and dad i just want ya'll to know i never forget you and that there isn't a day that goes by that i don't think of you . los amo y extrano....

Falling and Pier 1 imports




This morning i woke up with a wonderful positive attitude, i thought to myself today i will get out of this funk i have been on. I made plans on going to Pier 1 imports ( since i had a gift card) to target then the grocery store. as i was getting ready to leave i received a call from my father in law who needed some papers we had. since my in laws live a block away i told him i would pass by and drop them off. As my jolly self was walking down the steps my shoe got stuck to something and i fell, i was so angry at myself since this isn't the first time it happened. i fell last month as well. i fell in the street while it was raining, that was more of a slip then fall. Anyhow i fell and i was so upset that i started to throw up, as i was throwing up i put so much pressure on my face that i popped both of my veins in my eyes! omg i looked like someone has bet me. anyways today wasn't as bad but i was a little upset and scared for my baby. i sat in the floor for a few minutes ( thank god my car was parked in the driveway in front of me so no one saw, as i sat there and gathered myself. to make it worst i was talking to my husband at the time and my phone and my purse flew everywhere. yes yes i am naturally clumsy with my hands but not my feet. ughh so i picked up the phone and cried to my husband. what a baby right?well anyhow i gathered myself up and passed by the in laws.




Then went to pier 1. ohh thank heaven for pier one. i picked up some new things and came home much happier. did i mention i passed by In-N-Out. hahha came home to this wonderful warm weather, but if you know me well you know i love love the winter time, if its raining outside I'm happy. we don't get much rain here in southern California. when it raining i am so happy, anyhow i really think it the baby who loves the warm weather. the sun felt so good in my skin. i decided to get my blanket and sit outside. such a nice ending to a day that started of wrong.
