  • There she is: radiant, resplendlent, perfect hair, perfectly attired, always the chic sweater on her shoulders. Just a dab of makeup. Lipstick. White pearl earrings.

    Only three years ago! She was 85.

    At that time she had just been diagnosed with dementia.

    Mommy. Not the same any more.

    But in my heart, the same as always.

    No es la misma, siempre es la misma...

    Allí está: radiante, esplendorosa, un peinado perfecto, la ropa en estilo, su swéter colorado sobre los hombros. Un toque de maquillaje. Labios pintados. Bronceada. Los aritos de perla blancos.

    Sólo hacen tres años. Tenía 85.

    En esa época, nos dijeron que tenía demencia senil.

    Mami. Ya no es la misma.

    Pero en mi corazón, siempre será la misma.
