Introducing N. To My Mother In Heaven

.

Hey, Mom, How are things up in heaven?………………What?!……………They play bingo up there?

Look, I’m calling you to tell you I met this girl……………Yes, another girl…………….But she is different. You will like her……….Yes, I know I said this before, but she is special……………..Yeah, I know I’ve said this, too…………,,,…Are you rolling your eyes?

How is she different? Well, first she is very smart…………….Hey, what do you mean I don’t like smart girls?……………….Yeah, sure I’ll name you a few. How about er……………er………………then, there was…………….SIGH……………… Okay, okay, I get your point.

Well, she is beautiful, a talented poet and speaks 6 languages. Yeah 6…………………No Ma, Spanish isn’t one of them…………..The whole world doesn’t have to speak Spanish…………………Yes, I am teaching her.

Her name is Nandita. …………….. No, she isn’t Cubana………………. Yeah, her name ends with “ita” but that doesn’t mean she is Latina.

Jesus Christ, Mom. Yes, she eats rice………………………..Ooops, sorry about that. Hope the big guy didn’t hear me.

You always said laughter and love are the things that matter most. You always told me love is sacrificing the “me” for the “we.” Nandita believes that, too.

No, I haven’t met her yet…………… Hay, Dios Mio………… Tragedia??? This is not a tragedy.

The heartbreaking part is not that I haven’t met her yet; it is the fact that you never will…….,,………How will Nandita know what a wonderful mother you were? How will you know what a great wife she will be?

Sniffle, sniffle…………….No, Ma, I am cutting up some onions.

Yes, I brush after every meal.

Thank you for your blessings. It really means so much.

I miss you, too.
