"Our mother was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. She was a kind, tenderhearted, loving, caring, and hardworking person. She taught us these values not by telling us but by showing us in the way she lived her life. She opened her home and her heart to family and strangers alike. I can remember a time when she welcomed her friend and her ill son into our home. Her friend was from Mexico and needed a place to stay while her son received care at Texas Children’s Hospital. On another occasion she allowed one of our cousins to live with us while she worked and gathered enough money to begin her life. These are only two examples of the kindness and love our mother had in her heart. Our mother was a prayer warrior. She loved God with all her heart and trusted in Him to get us through any difficult times. As a kid I would often walk into my parents bedroom and see them both kneeling and praying at the foot of the bed. With seven children and a very modest income, there were many lean times in our family. But we always managed to make it and we believe it was her faith in God that got us through. The Bible tells us that if you plant a seed of faith, God in his timing will water it and produce great fruit. My mother sowed seeds of faith and love in us. She along with my dad are the reason we are believers today. Our mother was a hard worker. Although she didn’t have a regular 9-to-5 job because she was busy raising seven children, it never stopped her from helping my dad with the finances. My mother worked as a sales representative in her spare time for companies like Avon, Home Interiors, and Playhouse Toys. I have very fond memories of us helping my mother when the shipments came in for her customers orders. Our living room would be filled with boxes as we put orders together. As kids we saw this as a sort of game not realizing how much we were helping her. At meal times my mother would spend hours in the kitchen cooking and preparing for us. We never saw her actually sit down to enjoy what she had prepared. She stood at the hot stove making fresh tortillas while we ate. Sometimes we would eat them faster than she could make them. She would jokingly say that we were faster than the cook. At the time, we didn’t realize how good we had it. We just thought all mothers were like her. Now as adults we have come to appreciate her all the more. When we would get home from school, there was always a hot meal on the stove ready for us to eat. It became a ritual to guess what she made as soon as we walked in the house and could smell the food. My personal favorite was spaghetti. We recently found out through conversation as a family that our mother was told by her doctor that she would most likely be unable to have children. Well what the Doctor didn’t know was how strong our mother’s faith in God was. Seven children, multiple grandchildren and great grandchildren later, I guess she got the last laugh. As parents now with our own children we are amazed at the things she and my dad were able to accomplish with their limited resources. As we now begin to grieve and morn our loss, she will forever live in our hearts and in our memories. We will keep these memories alive by sharing stories like these with our children and grandchildren. May she now rest in peace in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father surrounded by her family that preceded her."
