My Dearest Darling

Happy 101st Birthday, ROSA TABERNERO REYES! My maternal grandmother lived a long life by what I call the S trio:
*strength
*struggle
*success
She & I were pen pals, so I’m about to read the letters that she air mailed to me from the PI, in which she always started off by writing w/endearment: “My Dearest Darling Elaine”…
As a fellow school teacher, I didn’t realize that I’d follow in her footsteps, yet she encouraged me to pursue a career in the fine arts, since she was impressed by my calligraphy & drawings that I’d send to her + my musical interests. Today, & the entire month of March, I shall especially celebrate my Lola Rosing: my mentor, my role model, my idol, my hero, my best friend, my favorite person on Earth, & now my guardian angel watching over me from Heaven.
~*~ R.I.P., NANAY ROSA (March 5, 1910-March 14, 2008) ~*~
