🙏🏾 New Blog Post 🙏🏾 Her face, her voice, her energy, her love, her cooking, her praying......it has been the foundation of my life. Her death shook me to my core. My foundation feels shaken. Her living and breathing made me feel safe and secure. My faith is not shaken but my heart aches......Forever My Granny.
Yesterday was one of those days I prayed to never see. I was at my Granny’s beautiful funeral service and my Father currently incarcerated. I was tasked with reading an open letter to my Granny from my Papa (Dad).I thank God for my village and my family for being the strong men beside me to help carry me through this devastating moment. I recognize that even through my pain, my life has great purpose. This is the side people don’t typically show when there’s fast money involved. This is the ugly side. This grief is a different level. My Father is in a cell grieving his Mother. 😢💔 I thank God for knowing the love of a Father and a Granny. But this thing hurts. Our neighborhoods once called me a “GD Princess” because of my Father’s position within the Gang. Well, this is what holding that “title” looks like. 😢 Yes, my cousins and the men my Father appointed held our family down but it’s nothing like my Father. We have 6 years to go....15 years down. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 I pray I made my Granny proud. I miss her so very much right now.
As I post this evening’s #SundaysWihTot I can’t help but think of my Granny. My Granny worked hard to provide for our family. She worked to make sure I was close with my Dad who’s in prison. Now, tomorrow we say our final goodbyes to my final Grandparent and here I am smiling in sequins. 😢😢My Granny would be proud. She respected WORK. She loved me before I knew to love myself. She prayed for me before I could pray for myself. 🙏🏾 Again, thank you to everyone who has left a love note, a text, etc. I’m thankful. I’m not okay. But I will be. 🙏🏾 • • • Beautiful Blazer from @eleven60! Amazing smartwatch from @misfitwearables ⌚️

The thing about death is it’s so final, so real, so heartbreaking. 💔 But the thing about life is it goes on. As much as I would like for the world to stop because I’m grieving, unfortunately life doesn’t work that way. 🙏🏾 • My Granny couldn’t quite grasp the concept of my blog but one thing she knew is I did something with clothes and fashion and she loved it. So as I try my best to process losing her and what that means for my life.....I’m going to focus on living. Thank you for your prayers and LOVE, they are very much needed and appreciated. ❤️🙏🏾 • • • Poncho & 👢 courtesy of @sheinofficial !
