To this day I'm not sure how our lives would've turned out if you didn't step in. (To this day I'm also not sure why you always marked/checked pictures with a ballpen.) You were more than a mother to me. I will always remember your tutoring me, how fiercely you fought for me to be in the gifted class in my schools, how you pitted me academically against other neighbours' kids/classmates, and how you always pushed me to aspire to be better.
Happy (grand)mother's day Lola.
Love, your Alas ♠ (June 1995 on our dear uncle's wedding where we served as reluctant bridesmaids. Margarita was so cute - she was almost 8 here!) #tigergrandma
