I never met my Nana Bernie, but her legacy has been passed down through the stories and actions of the wonderful children she had who were my role models growing up. Specifically my mamma, in the way she makes the best of everything she has, the way her house and heart are open to everyone, and the way she throws the BEST parties. It’s great that these things can be passed down, but there’s another lesson we can all learn from this story. My Nana died young, unexpectedly. This could happen to any of us.
So please, try to live everyday to the fullest. Be grateful for each day, each spot of sunshine, each hug, each time you laugh. If you haven’t spoken to someone you love for a while, take this opportunity to ring them and ask about how they are. I know it’s easier said than done, and I know life can seem hard, but try to remind yourself to smile. Hope you’re having a good party up there Nana, love you.
