Well. Here I am working on my first post for my new blog. I am dedicating my blog to my Mother, Elba. She recently passed on February 18th 2009.
It is absolutely amazing to me how many people she has touched through out her life. The massive amount of love and support of all her family and friends has been a tribute of her legacy of kindness.
She has truly been the sweetest Mother and a devoted wife to my father for over 41 years! This is a picture of her when she was 16 years old. She met my father through an arranged blind date when she was a foreign exchange student in the United States. My Dad to this day jokes that he had no idea what a “Bolivian” looked like. Well as you can see… he was pleasantly surprised. Needless to say, they fell in love. My father shipped off to Vietnam, my Mother waited over a year praying for him to return so they could marry. Good thing for my sister and I, he came back!
I hold the memories of my Mother close to me as I continue though my crazy life. Art is nothing without inspiration… so now I am inspired more than ever! Thanks Mom.
