Happy #Birthday Amalia Paris Lopez! #Mom #Love #PhenomenalWoman #HappyBirthday
Happy Birthday to my phenomenal Queen, Amalia!
September 1, because she is #1!
I may not be where I want to be, may not have all the money in the world, but I have had all the riches in the world since I was born, with my mother, Amalia. We do not choose who our mom will be, but God has given me the best blessing, and gift of all, whom is my mother Amalia Lopez. The gratitude and thankfulness will never end to God for the blessing of my late Grandma Juana Rodriguez Reyes, and late Great Grandmother Felicita Reyes, and beyond. Through each, the time eventually came for my mother's birth, who not only birthed me, but gave me six other treasures, my brothers and sisters, that I love with all my heart.

We all get caught up with how many followers we have, who we like and dislike, or what brands we wear, but all of that means nothing, absolutely nothing without GOD, and without the love from our mother. Sometimes I wonder if I am doing the right thing being far from my mom, not seeing her everyday, but I know she wants me to continue to blossom.
The best gift my mom taught me, was the gift of love, an abundance of love! I know how to love because of her, and although many have hurt her, she's forgiven and moved on with grace. I would not have survived the things that I have if it was not for my mother, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to know, let alone be my mom.
I wish that I could take any of her pain away, and that I could turn back time to just see her grow all over again. She has taught me to be brave, gave me beauty and brains, and always reminded me that what is meant for me will be and what is not, will not.
"Life is for the victorious and triumphant, not the weak and scared," Amalia.
I have had and have what all the money in the world cannot buy, and I am blessed, truly blessed to feel, know, see, and be able to say that my mom LOVES me, and is PROUD of me! Nothing else besides God's love, and the love for myself can amount to that. Amalia Lopez is truly a phenomenal woman! Happy Birthday my sweet, sweetheart.
A special shout out to my siblings who through each of them, carry a piece of my mom, carrying a piece of my heart.
Enjoy a few songs on the next page, that remind me of my mom.
