Everyone knows that every day is Mother's Day, but as we celebrate May 9 which would have also been my oldest and late brother's birthday I made special plans involving both my MoM, Margarita, and Big Brother Tony.
During his high school football days, Tony was known as The Cuban Bullet. He was fast and dangerous for anyone on the opposing side who was running with the football.
Interestingly enough, my mom, Margarita was initially told not to expect children, but she prayed and was eventually blessed three times over with boys. If they were still alive, there are a million things I would say to them. They were funny, loyal, protective, and well, everything else, we can say about special people in our lives.
Now it's time to come up with the right words to explain just how much MoM means. But if you're struggling to find a sentiment that best sums up feelings, start with these easy, inspiring thoughts and memories from my mom. Live for today, that is why they call it the present and tailor the day to all good wishes and positive energy.
Perhaps, also something funny because she would appreciate a good belly laugh like anything else, or something sweet and heartwarming cause words of affirmation were her love language.
I also have fond memories of attending Mass with my parents every Sunday. Although Queen of Peace High School is long gone, the Parish continues to hold church services.
When I called and asked that "Mi Mama Margarita" and "Cuban Bullet Tony Soto are both remembered for Mother's Day mass. While I am at it, please allow me to wish all mothers, including my fabulous and delightful daughters, their mother, my wonderful wife, and everyone a terrific time on another one of their special holidays this Sunday... And so it goes!
