I don't know how to start and I don't want it to make you sad. Maybe you don't want to know or is not of your concern. But now that I'm recovering from the initial shock and my pain is a tiny bit less, I feel the need to write about it, and to give her this space.
My mother in law, Maria Ester Sabartez, passed away last Tuesday, March 31. She lived in San Pedro, a small town 110 miles north of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Many of you know that is my native country.
Grandma and grandson
This post is to pay homage to her. She was a fighter, she loved life, and --because life was never easy to her-- she had more willing power that many people I know.
She taught me so many things in 26 years we shared together, but especially when she came to make me company for the first 4 years of my life in this country. We shared so much stitching and so much knitting back then!! Then, she moved back to Argentina; but her dedication to all of us and her lessons are countless. I don't know, but now, with each day passing, I am taking more and more into account the magnitude of things she represented to me. I am going to miss her so much...
Both of us singing
My son Alex and my husband traveled there for her funeral and that makes me very happy, her only grandson and he could be with her at her final moments.
I don't understand why she left us so soon; she was only 62. It's going to take me a while. But what I am sure about is that she is close to Jesus, and this comforts me.
I love you. Rest in peace. Amen
