A Mother’s Reminiscing & a Trip to Mexico
Here are some thoughts from my heart to my David Jr. right after I hugged and kissed him goodbye, sending him on his way to Mexico City for the first time in 13 years! ….
My David, I’m so excited for you sweetie! I’m praying that God blesses you there in many ways…way beyond what you can even ask or think! We will be missing you here son, but we are glad we can bless Mexico City and Chivis’ family with you! Please give everyone there big hugs for us!
…With tears in my eyes I can see you there in our first home in Mexico City, even before God had given us our Jonathan, well he was probably in my tummy! You would be standing there, down by my side… looking up at me and smiling and asking me your daily morning question, that I could always count on, “What we doing today Mommy?”, and for emphasis you would repeat, “What doing Mama?”
You were always ready to take on the day, and excited to discover what God had in store for our day. You loved to be able to leave the house and explore the world of Mexico City; it’s amazing people, places and events, and we can’t forget the Mexican food…. and hot chili candy…that filled your little life with great adventure!
From the very beginning of your little life you began to change your world for the better; with your joyful, expectant heart, your desire to serve others, and your love for people! Every time the doorbell rang you were excited to be a little host.
You wanted to greet everyone with your gregarious and welcoming smile and personality! You would then run to the kitchen to get out a big bowl or serving tray so we could share some chips or other yummy treat with our guests.
You always wanted everyone to feel welcomed, loved, and to have fun with us in our home! Your love for people and excitement about life was contagious from the beginning of your little life!
Blessings on your return to the roots of your childhood, son. We are grateful to Mario Silva and Silvia Arellanos for this precious and generous college graduation gift of a two-week, all expenses paid, trip to Mexico City! May God richly bless their family for their gracious generosity of this amazing gift to you, our first college graduate! Sending a hug your way!
