Hello Monday and happy Labor Day everyone. I hope you’re all enjoying your day off.
With Labor Day, we mark the first of September.. Can y’all believe we are three months til the end of the year? Time has seriously been flying by too quickly. This past year has been a huge blur, maybe just to me. But let’s live life each day, appreciating even the littlest things in life.
I woke up this morning, happy as usual. Because why? Why not I say! I’m lucky to be alive, I’m luck to be laying on a comfy bed, under a roof to keep my dry and plentiful of food for breakfast. I walk out of my room only to be informed that my Grandmother has passed away. I kid you not, I almost fell to the ground if I had not fell backwards to the wall. Those words circled my head and I felt dizzy. I thought I was still sleeping, dreaming those words. But unfortunately… I wasn’t. I was awake, alert.
That brings me to today’s post…it is Monday, and my normal post would have been about my manicure. But that’s not the case today. I apologize everyone. I just cannot gather myself to do anything like that today. To begin, we still don’t know where my Grandmother is.
Although I call her Grandmother, she and I aren’t biologically related in anyway. She was the one who took my Daddy in when he first set foot on America. She took him under her wings like her own son and he was grateful he called her Mom. She is the only Grandmother I ever knew of. (I only have a surviving paternal Grandmother that resides in Vietnam.) But this Grandma, the one and only I ever knew was there when I first came into this world, she watched after me when my parents were at work. She was there for my brother and I throughout out whole childhood.
But for her last moments in this world, no one was able to spend it by her side. Actually, as of now, no one knows of her whereabouts. Her biological granddaughter took her in and has been tucking her away since. We only found out of my grandmother’s passing through a Facebook post her daughter posted. Even her own sister wasn’t notified of the death until she say the post.
I’ve been busy all day trying to figure everything out. But there’s nothing I can really do with her documents and not knowing her whereabouts. Everyone is panicking, calling everywhere to locate her and seeing when the funeral is. It’s just been a very stressful day…
Again, I’d like to apologize that today’s post isn’t beauty related and there isn’t a manicure post. I just can’t deal with that today. I APOLOGIZE. Regular posts will be back up tomorrow, Wednesday the latest. Please understand.
I’d like to thank for reading. I will meet you all back on a happier note. <3
