Children growing up

This week my life was engulfed in a lot of sadness. Sadness that I can not describe here. Sadness that is like death in the family for not being able to see someone that you love for so many years and then just seeing them for a minute and from a distance. I have tried to put my mind around it and all that I can do is think about my children now Sarah and Pachi, how they bring me joy as I see them grow and participate in the glow of the Puertorican and Colombian cultures.
