Ana Navarro is ‘thankful’

It’s not easy knowing that one of your beloved parents is sick and Navarro has openly expressed her sentiment with all of her fans. As The View star celebrated Thanksgiving, Navarro shared a beautiful photo of her mother in front of a turkey. This time a year ago, the political commentator spent the holiday with her mom in Nicaragua.

“Today, I’m feeling thankful that last year, despite COVID scares and many difficulties, Al & I traveled to Nicaragua to spend Thanksgiving with my mom and dad,” Navarro posted on Instagram on Nov. 25. “As she reaches the end of her life, I am thankful I have had a great mother, well into my adulthood. Not everyone does. If you are one of the lucky ones who still has parents in good health, be thankful and don’t take it for granted. Make every moment count.”

The last line rings a bell because back in October of this year, Navarro revealed the one regret she had in life.

“I have regrets for things I haven’t done and this week I’ve been thinking a lot about it,” Navarro shared on The View. “I’ve told you all — my mom has been incredibly sick and she had her last rites given a few days ago. And I really regret not having spent more time with her when she was healthy. Today, she got out of ICU. I don’t know how long she’s gonna last but I’m to call her every day.”

Fans share their support for Ana Navarro and her mom

After the beautiful message dedicated to her mother, Navarro received messages of support from her followers and celebrities during this emotional time.

“Amen, sending love,” Latin singer Paulina Rubio replied.

“You couldn’t have said it better Anna! Today I’m picking up my 94 yr old Mom and bringing her to our home for a sleepover. She said that’s the best gift I could give her. I’m the last of my friends with a living parent and I cherish her,” a fan shared.

“What a damn fine job she did in raising you, Ana. Thankful for your voice,” a follower said.

“Wishing you and your mother and family peace as you make this transition that is universal yet so personally crushing,” an Instagram user commented.
