My Grandmother Generosa, Daniela’s GreatGrandmother had been wanting to visit and see the baby since she was born. Due to health issues, we couldn’t make it happen until today. My mother called that she was in Ponce with my Grandmother and that they were going to come up to visit. When they arrived, we immediately took pictures with Grandma, who immediately gave her blessings.
She kept asking if Raul was a great man to me, and I replied many times over that he was the best dad and partner. She fell in love with JuanGa and wanted to take him home with her.
Most importantly, we were able to take a picture of four generations of women on my side of the family. Of course Grandmother Generosa is still witty and told me that a boy was coming to the family. I of course asked her when and she told me when you make him.
One thing today taught me was the importance of remembering your grandparents no matter how old they are or what they did in the past, they are still your family.
