Eneida is my great grandmother. I called her Carki. I have so many memories with her from when I was younger. Most of my visits were just that, visits. She and my family rarely made plans to go anywhere because enjoying each other’s company was more than enough. Nothing could ever compare to her smile and hug as she greeted me into her home. First thing she would do, without fail is ask if we had eaten, and even if we had, she’d insist on making us something. Then she’d often go on about how beautiful I’ve gotten since the last time she saw me. She loved to hold my hand and listen oh so tentatively to any and everything I had to say. All of these vivid memories I have with my Carki continued even after she couldn’t remember my name, or most times that I was even her granddaughter. This goes to show how welcoming and loving she was to someone who may have seemed to her like a stranger. If you had the privilege of meeting my Carki, you understand what I mean when I say she exuded “home”. I’m beyond grateful God chose me to be her granddaughter. And though there could never be another Carki, we all have something to learn from her selflessness, unconditional love, hospitality and overall outlook on life. And my hope is that we’re all able to start incorporating these most admirable traits in our everyday lives.
