Jar Entry #108 – Happy Birthday, Mom!

Happy birthday, Mom!

71 years ago, Dr. Leonor T. Rosero, my mom, was born. She passed away due to cancer a few months after her 65th birthday on Sept 14, 2011. But she will forever be remembered for her humility, her achievements, her wisdom, her patience, and her love.

Baby BabyI see a lot of her in Nixi, especially when I look at her cheeks, arms, and legs. Maybe someday we’ll see more of her when she starts to talk, study, and achieve.

Maybe Nixi will be as studious as her grandma and her mom, both Cum Laudes in their respective fields. Perhaps the image below will inspire Nixi as well (look for Leonor N. Tripon, “N.” is supposed to be “M.”).Exam listing

I’m glad I was able to hear mass today so I could pray for her. It’s a small gesture but it greatly resonates with me.

We truly miss you, Mom. Thanks for visiting me in my dreams once in a while. We love you!
