April this year was one of the best months I’ve had in a while, but it was also one of the worst. The month started out great! I got the chance to visit my family for a little bit in Southern California, and while I was there, I had the opportunity to experience my very first showroom visit. I’ve been blogging for quite some time now, and so the showroom visit was one of those major milestones I got to experience, as a result of working hard and simply doing something that I love. I finally felt like all of my hard work was starting to really pay off. The next day however, I found out that my grandmother had been admitted to the ICU, and about a week or so later, she ended up passing away from cancer. Needless to say, the rest of April was pretty difficult for me to get through. But I am very thankful that I had the chance to see her before she passed, and I’m truly at peace knowing that she’s no longer suffering. It was the amazing courage and strength that my grandmother had, in-which she instilled within my mom, and that my mom instilled within me, that helped me to remain strong and support my family during this difficult time. It was that same strength and courage, that’s kept me going with my work and school, and along with knowing she’s with me every step of the way. That’s why I’m starting off May on a positive note. So many wonderful things will be coming to fruition this month, and she always supported me in my endeavors. Therefore I’ve decided to turn this low moment, into a triumph, a moment of strength. That’s why this medallion from AWE means so much to me. The medallion represents the four teardrops of blood, sweat, tears of sorrow, and tears of joy. Now each time I wear it moving forward, I’ll forever think of my beautiful grandmother, and her amazing strength .
