32 yrs ago...

On a day like today, but in the year 1977, my birth mother Gilda passed away of an aneurysm.

She was 23 yrs old and I was only 6 months, so unfortunately I don't remember my time with her.

This last time I was back in Costa Rica I went to see my grandmother (Gilda's Mother) and got a hold of some old pictures that she still had. My grandma used to always have tons and tons of pictures, but I guess with her being sick and having lots of different nurses and helpers the pictures as well as a lot of her stuff has gone missing, I was glad to be able to get some of my mom's pictures as well as some from when I was a little girl.

I can't really say I miss her because as I say before I really don't remember her, plus like I mention in a previous post (my two moms), after she passed away God and my dad gave me the opportunity to have another wonderful mother that has being more than I can ever imagine in my life.

But I know that mom Gilda is always looking out for me and although she was very young when God called her to his side, and we did not get to spend much time together, she is always in my heart and I live each day thinking of the best way to carry her memory and legacy of love!

Here are some pictures of her through the years...

This is a truly wonderful and precious posting and you are so lucky to have these photos.

I lost my mum through relationship breakdown when I was 8 years of age and although she was alive, I never really knew her until I was an adult and by then, well, she just doesn't feel like a mum. Wish I'd had some photos like these to help me through all those years I prayed for a mum. Your photos brought a huge smile to my face as well as a little tear!

Thank you for sharing, and, your mum, she was so very beautiful.

Am loving your blog and am going to follow you.

Be back soon!
