My Mother - Maria Saucedo de Hidalgo (1900-1984)
July 22 is my sweet mother's birthday. Here we pay a small but heartfelt tribute to this exceptional and loving woman,
who cared for five siblings for most of their lives as a single parent, after her husband died a tragic death due to a medical
misdiagnosis. Maria Saucedo de Hidalgo, you are loved and remembered every day. Grácias Mamá (thank you, Mom)
for your gift of tender love, sustain, appreciation, support and life! Thank you for the loving memories. We will never forget you.

Light guide me. Illuminate my path
Peace sleep with me I will carry you
Sun, cover me, I want t oarrive quickly
Salt, carry me first to the threshold.
Of my childhood
That my mother filled
Making me feel
For her wholesome care.
I want to sing
That which in my chest
I feel beating.
Caring for me in this way
I grew up
Drinking from her love.
Light, guide and illuminate her path
Peace, kiss her I deliver you to her
Sun, cover her make her live I beg you
Salt give her to me, my mother is what I want (and love).
In my adulthood
Once again reliving
That my mother gave me
In her complete love and care.
I want to pray
And in this way thank
Of never seing perish
I drank with her love.
Mamá beloved, I kiss you grateful
For the volume of light, peace, and life.
Thanks mamá! for having tought me how to live
For the sun and the salt of having been born!
