Happy 91st Birthday to our angelical grannie Ate, (my dad’s mother).
Today I dedicate a very special post in honor of my grandmother, Margarita ‘Ate / Margo’ Mercelina - Adriana – 91 years young today!
Our grannie is our rock, inspiration and role model. She is a remarkable woman of strength, patience, love and courage. She is brilliant, vibrant, full of heart and truly a treasure in our lives.
The amazing thing is, she was raised as an orphan with her nieces, after her mom died leaving her at very young age and coming from a Jewish father whom already had his own family - she sticked devoted and developed a big family with values and loving hearts. A loving mother, a sweet grandmother and she became an adopted mom/grannie for all who came across her path. I always thought that if she didn’t get married she would have been a nun.
Ate has always been an active person and has the heart and mind of someone 20 years younger. When people meet her they can’t believe she’s 91 years old.
If I could give you a gift Ate, I would give you the ability to see yourself as others see you, then you could really see how very special you are.
Your courage in the face of adversity, and your inner strength is truly a blessing. I hope that if the infinite blesses my path with 91 years of journey, I’m half as vital, dynamic, healthy, and loving as you are! I wish you many more years of health and happiness.
Happy Birthday from your grandson wènchi!
We love you!
