My Hero...



On Sunday January 6, 2013 I lost my hero.   My Grandmother Lalia Louise Hawthorne Wixson passed from this world.  It is a hard thing to accept, someone that meant so much to me no longer a phone call away… There are moments where it is almost unbearable.

But then I think of the legacy that she left me.

Every time I look in the mirror, I see her work in progress.  She took me in when I needed her and she insured that I went to school and had every tool that she was able to give me to live the best life I possibly can.   

And I will. 

Every breath I take, every moment… will be in honor of her.

What a hard thing--to be at such a loss. Being determined to celebrate all that she gave and all that she had--is a testimony of how well she loved. And how well she was loved by you.

*hugs*
I'm so sorry for the loss you feel in your heart.
