Day 9 of 15DaysOfHispanicHeritage photos: Familia/Family.
Not enough words exist in the Spanish or English language to say how important familia is to me. My parents both lost a parent at a very young age, my paternal grandfather was gunned down in front of my father and my maternal grandmother died of cancer. Although it was traumatic for my parents both to lose a parent at a young age, it is beyond amazing that they were able to instill in us Torres5 the importance of staying together no matter what and that family is everything.
Both Mike and Margaret have told us how much we Torres5 are loved which is so important for a child to hear and know. Above is a recent pic of Grandpa and Great-Grandpa Mike with some of his grand- and great-grandchildren.
Some of us at the Ranch celebrating Mother’s Day earlier this year!
I also love that we grew up with our extended familia at the Ranch and that Mama made sure that we hung out with our Grijalva fam as well. Now we have to keep the tradition going with the future generations of our family. No family is perfect and not all is perfect but all is most def right in the world when all is right with familia. #HHM15Foto
