Wow! What a day! It ended with 5 hours of sound sleep. Uncertainty until late in the afternoon. Then? Your gift. Roxana and Denise publicly honored me.
- Roxana published a documentary of her life with me. Denise? A letter that touched the depth of my being. Quote:
Thia Basilia Licona – did you know when you came to the states as young woman that you would be married, with threee daughters within 5 years? Many more years, children, ups and downs….here are portions of our story, Me and You, Momma…..
You are 80 years old now. You still have your passion and love and you still push through with joy.And I look forward to being reunited with you again someday…. I Love You!!!
Mom, I believe this is the last time I was able to hug you. I miss that more than anything. Giving you a hug. So here’s a BIG HUG now, virtually
This is your twin wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day!
You love with such a big heart! It’s so hard to understand everything you did for me and our family.
Honestly, I think it’s easy to throw the baby out with the bathwater and to remember the trauma and forget the beauty and all of the hard work and pure love that you lavished upon us.
You tried so hard meeting everyone’s needs and demands and trying to make everyone feel special, despite the fact that you were dealing with so much pain. I have a theory about people that experience so much drama and trauma… They are very old and powerful beings that were entrusted with some very difficult things to heal.
You are a superhero. I see you.
Thank you for the countless hours you put into caring for me and the rest of us and for doing your best make us feel special, which wasn’t easy with all those kids. So many demands on you that it was so difficult for you to know what it is that you wanted and needed. And everybody just wanted more and more of you. It’s a lot!
