During the past few weeks, Mama Estrada has been having a rough time to put it lightly. Rest assured, she’s getting the love and care she needs to get her better. Both of my brothers continue to be the main support for her and have been phenomenal in managing situations I can’t begin to fathom. Our extended families are also offering beautiful support and it’s nice to see how much love Mom inspires and how much love people give during this challenging time. Nurses, doctors, and everyone involved are on board and also refer to her on a first name basis. That’s the attitude we’re bringing to the game.
Although some days are good, some days could be better. We’re always trying to win an inch, win any victory, big or small. I’m writing this post not to share specifics, but to make a small request or invitation more so: to say #CheersMamaEstrada. Even though we welcome thoughts and prayers and we welcome all forms of support, we love a smile and she loves people having tea, drinking coffee, doing a shot, sipping on a margarita, eating cake, and the such, getting a buzz while sending positive vibes. Capturing a moment of happiness and sharing it with her.
That’s Mom for you and we are all following suit. Keeping it positive and taking it one day at a time.
I’ll be posting #CheersMamaEstrada pics and creating a gallery on the Facebook Author page. You can send me pics or put them in the comment section. Want to include a poem, a joke, or a happy thought? Bring it. Want to share a prayer. They are welcome. Found the perfect puppy or cat video? Post below. We believe in the power of positive thoughts. We know how empowering a smile can be. We are in this together and we are thankful for everyone who continues to share smiles and positivity.
Cheers to you and #CheersMamaEstrada
