I feel like the holidays are both amazing but also kinda emotional at the same time and let me explain why. Holidays are all about being with family and loved ones and its sad and emotional because some of us don’t have certain loved ones with us during these times; whether they live miles or oceans away or they have sadly passed. There are two people I am dearly missing this year during the holidays and I wish I could just hug them one last time and they are my uncle who sadly passed away a few years ago at such a young age and my sweet angel grandma who sadly passed away last year. My uncle is the only uncle I have on my mom’s side and I love him so much. He was like a second dad to me and his passing was so unexpected and hurt so much. My sweet angel grandma well she is my angel literally. She had such a pure gold heart and was the sweetest soul ever. I get so much of my personality from her, I definitely got the pure heart and sweetness from her too. She was the one who put some sense into my dad when my husband and I were dating and he didn’t like the fact that he was not Armenian. Armenians always want their kids to marry Armenians for the most part and the fact that my Grandma got my dad to accept my husband is something that I am forever grateful for.
If you have someone who is no longer with us in this world during the holidays, I am sending you a big hug… I know its hard!
