This year has been one with ups and downs. We started the year toasting champagne and sparkling apple cider for you.
We were luck to have electricity to ring in the new year. not many people could say that because electricity for most of the island including vieques and culebra didn’t come back up until july just two months shy of Hurricane Maria’s anniversary.
We had clients leave us but obtained new ones and dad worked his butt off to make sure you had clothes on your back, a roof, and food on the table.
He worked so hard he made your dreams come true about going to Disney and we did in September.
You swam so much on vacation that the lifeguards at the hotel French Quarter were impressed.
I was walking lots in the beginning of the year by myself and with you at times sometimes all three of us went to Old San Juan.
But I got hurt in July shin splints and thought I was going to have to get a wheelchair for vacation. Thanks to you and dad, I was able to go and by the time vacation was done, I had no shin splints. You made me exercise in the pool too.
Just know that through all the hard times, I love you. And eventhough Dad and I argue, we love eachother very much. So much that we have been together 14 years. and the best seven soon to be eight have been because of you.
You are the best thing that has ever happened to us and to me especially because I didn’t see any kids in my future.
But you are a mixture of Mom and Dad, sweet, empathetic, tough, fair, firm, and you won’t back down.
Just know that when it comes time for you to pick a person to love, that they should love your positive and negative faults. All of you just like your dad loves all of my faults.
I know I have been lazy with writing month to month but just know that I love you all the same. Take care of Dad and Juanga if anything should happen to me. Go on adventures with your Dad, travel often and enjoy yourself. Never stop for anyone. Always question people and don’t take no for an answer. eventually, someone will say yes.
Listen to your dad because he is a smart man and only wants what is best for you. Reach out to my friends like Jessy and Maritza and Iris. They love you too and Titi Veronica of course.
I love you my, Chuchi
