A woman who is always there for me, love is an understatement to what she gives to me. Her ideologies, her philosophies, her disposition in life, I admire them. She never left me nor will she ever do, through thick and thin, through storms and earthquakes, through hard, tough, and good times. I fathom she is the most amazing woman I have ever met in my entire life.
There was a point in my life that I felt weak, trash in somebody’s bin, strength was not in my corner, no one was around not even my family. She called me and said that she will meet me in one of her favorite places. I know she was all that I needed to get through it. It was a lovely afternoon, it was such a humble place to eat, there I saw her. She smiled like there was nothing wrong, she is still the most beautiful woman I have ever seen after all these years. Straight away, I looked at her grey eyes, she taught me that. A kiss to the cheek and I felt safe, I felt my problems fading away. If there was such a personification for instantaneous happiness, she would be it.
We spoke about the problem that I was encountering, but more than that, we talked about life. She told me about her whole journey, the struggles, the problems, the devastating moments that I wish never happened to her, and her success. Every word represents a vivid image, it was appalling, I teared up. She told me to help three people everyday so I could sleep with a smile in my face: Myself, family, and others. She was the one who taught me that if you are choosing your words, hit the heart, not the mind. She taught me how to be strong again, that she will always be there to guide me through my journey, that she will help me with everything.
After the conversation, I felt hope pass through my entire body. She is the only one that can do that, she is the only person that I know that has the power to make my indestructible problems feel like they were just a challenge. She is my Mommy, my grandma, she is smart, she is lovely, she is my shield, she is my sword, she is my hope, she is my light. And I do believe that yes, there will always be a grandmother on your side.
