I'm sure by now most of you guys have noticed. I have not posted on my blog for over 2 weeks. Truth be told I lost my grandmother about a week ago. I've never had to experience the pain of losing someone so close to me. I always counted that as such a big blessing. However blessings like those are only temporary. I lived with my grandmother for nearly all of my life and she is responsible for creating the driven southern woman I am today.
She moved from Louisiana at the age of 14 to Texas by herself in the 1930s and worked her way up into owning her own restaurant, becoming a licensed beautician, and nurse. All without graduating high school. Being that she did all this in the South during a time when rights weren't guaranteed to anyone of color, I feel this makes her my Civil Rights Hero and truly amazing in my eyes. I only wish I can be half the woman as my grandmother was.
Goodbye Meme! Will love you always!
