Quote of the Week

"I guess by now I should know enough about loss to realize that you never really stop missing someone. You just learn to live around the huge gaping hole of their absence."
-- Alyson Noel

On May 14, 2012 my baby brother Santos passed away. He fought a brave fight with diabetes and heart disease till the very end. I remember so clearly the day Mom bought him home from the hospital back in 1959. Little did I know how much that moment would impact my life. Santos had such a great sense of humor and never seem to run out of jokes and was great at imitating many celebrities. He was quite the prankster and loved making calls to pronounce winners of lotteries, etc. Still recall the message he left me about some outstanding bill he claimed I had and the fear it evoked. What a card!

He will be missed by us his family. My mom, my sister, and my brother, his sons, his daughter, his nieces and nephews, his aunties and uncles. Rest in peace now little brother, till we meet again on the other side.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers and grandmothers out there. My life wouldn't be the same without these special ladies in my life, my mother Luz, my daughter Sarai, and my daughter in law Julie. A special shout out to my sisters Lucy and Teresita and my sister in law, Janet.

Yo Yo Quilt

Finally got back to my Patriotic Yo Yo Quilt and made a bit of progress on the "edging" of it. Considering this is my first such quilt I'm kinda going with the flow and seeing where it takes me. Hope to have another update soon.
