Memories Last Forever

What are the best memories you hold in your heart about a loved one?  Mine are those of my grandmother Nena.  I was blessed to have enjoyed her company as a little girl every break I had from school.  Each year I looked forward to Summer, Christmas, and Easter breaks.  Not because I wanted to run around with my friends, but because I was going to Mexico to spend time with my Nena.  I remember the lessons of love she taught me and how to have compassion for those less fortunate.  She taught me about giving, empathy, sympathy, sharing, caring, about God, kindess, and most of all… about forgiveness.

She went home to be with our Heavenly Father when I was 11 years old.  Yet, I still miss her after 32 years of living without her.  But her memory is tattooed in my heart and burned to memory.  Although I miss her just as much today as when the day she passed, I am thankful for the beautiful memories she left imprinted in my soul.  Someday I will see you again Nena.

I thank my parents for having blessed me with her name… MAGDALENA.

  1. I love this card.

  2. I can’t think of a more beautiful card in your Nena’s honor…and I know that she is always with you, continuing that special bond that you had together. I too have a special grandmother that I miss….maybe I should make a card in honor of her. TFS!
