Be ready for what life is going to put you up against.
Because in life there will be deaths and you have to learn to overcome them because you can’t let that pull you down. The one day that my belief was challenged was when my Grandma died. It was after her death when I put my belief into action. I lost my grandma to cancer it had spread from her ovaries to her stomach so when they tried to treat it it was already too late. It impacted me very harshly because Life isn’t fair because you will always lose someone special you just have to learn how to deal with it.
My Grandma helped me in many ways. I had a very strong connection with my grandma there were some days where I would help with everything Garden, Cooking, Watering plants, feeding the animals. She helped me learn Spanish, She taught me how to cook little things like eggs and beans when I was 7, She taught me to have manners if she hadn’t taught me to have manners I would be a rude little boy. She would take care of me as if i was her son, She would always make sure that I was always well rested and fed well. She was a positive influence because she taught me to always be at my very best. It was because of her that I actually felt like finishing school. She told me “Don’t you want to help your mom”?? I then realized that the only way I can help her right now is by going to school, Suddenly I was motivated to start doing better in school.
One day my life suddenly changed. She died because of cancer, it was from her ovaries to her stomach. It had a huge impact on me because of those things we got close and when I lost my grandma I felt that a part of me left with her. I had known my grandma was sick but I never had imagined that she would be taken from us so quickly. I was playing video games in my room, and I heard my mom pick up a call (it was my aunt). They were having a normal conversation until I heard a change in the tone of voice in my mom, moments after I Heard herself throw herself to the ground I dropped what I was doing and rushed to see what had happened. She only said 4 words when I asked what’s wrong.? “She didn’t make it”. At first, I didn’t know what she was talking about it took me a while to realize what had happened. After I figured out what had happened, we immediately started packing some clothes to go to Tijuana, where she died. when we arrived(2 Hours Later) there were at least 3 parts of the family there. We spent time together just trying to be there for each other. It isn’t something I can easily get over.
Some days are easy and some days are hard but talking to friends makes my day much better and also much easier to handle the loss. But there isn’t just friends it is also family that are keeping in touch with me asking if I’m okay. When I had told my friends about this they started, talking to me a lot more than what they used to, They would make sure I was ok every day, Remind me that if I ever needed to rant or talk they were there. All the little things like that make me happy.
I am going to honor my grandma by Finishing school, getting a job, and helping others. To “Celebrate” her I am helping my grandpa with his shop. Remembering is the easiest part because I spent 11 years with her. But I would say that the memories are why I remember her so much.Tags: Health Sciences High and Middle College
