I need to take a serious moment.
Last Wednesday I lost my aunt Valia to pancreatic cancer. It’s hard trying to put into words what she meant to me because anything I type seems trivial. She was my best friend, my cheerleader, and my rock.
I want to dedicate this blog to Valia. Her unconditional love is something that kept me writing, even when I felt there was nothing to say. She made me feel like everything I wrote was Pulitzer worthy (even when I knew it wasn’t).
I truly feel blessed to have had such a amazing presence in my life. I think of her every day and am who I am because of her.
Thank you Valia for teaching me what love truly is.
