7th day is Sunday

Well, I've reached my seventh day on the 100 days photo challenge, so far so good because I've not missed a single day, yeah!

Today's challenge is a picture of Me and somebody I be lost without, and that person is not other than my Mom Lorena.


Although my Mom Lorena is not really my birth mother (but my Aunt as she is my father's sister), giving birth to me is about the only thing that she has not done for me, so I would definitely be lost without her.

She is an amazing person, very wise and intuitive, realistic and intelligent, but specially a great Mother, wife, sister and friend to many people...

She knows me like the back of her hand, knows every single one of my moods and ways. Sometimes if I am sad and I call her, with a simple "hello" she knows that there's something going on with me...

But besides the many great attributes she's got, she is also an inspiration to me. Been that she went through breast cancer twice, I am very proud and happy to say that she is a survivor.

Cancer was a very hard and difficult test for her and all of our family members, but being the person that she is, going through it, proved me one more time, that God gives us certain obstacles in life to find more love and gospel in our lives and relationships, although it's never easy to see the blessings in disguise. My blessing out of this situation was to be able to be there for her with full support, love and trust, our bond became even stronger...

So, yes, for this and many more reasons I would be lost without her in my life and although we would all be called to be closer to God one day, I know that everything she is and everything she has teach me would always be a very big part of who I am, I love you Mami!

It's just like the following "adapted" quote....
"It's not the flesh and blood but the heart that makes us Mother and Daughter"


Have a great Sunday!!!

This is SO warming and rich to read about!..I have a sense that this photo challenge really gives an opportunity to recall and find values for people in one´s life, and for the magic of life itself. Must admit I am almost getting "addicted" to reading your photo challenge posts, its like chapters in a book, telling a great story. :-)
