Sarka’s PBC Blog #10 – April 5, 2023
I come from a line of very strong women. I am a strong woman. Loving. Powerful. Autonomous. Breaking barriers and going after dreams. Living life to the fullest and surmounting what life can throw at you.My grandmother, a woman who faced challenges head on and came out stronger; raised children without knowing what the next day would bring or if everything would be ok; and gave herself wholly and put herself on the back burner, to make sure everyone had what they needed. Strong women I lost my mother when I was a young adult. I thought she was going to be by my side for a very long time. That didn’t happen. This women sacrificed everything for us, never asking to be repaid. Loving. Strong. Independent. Funny. Resourceful. I lost her and I could go on describing how much I admire her and love her. She gave me everything she had and loved me, nurtured me, empowered me, and pushed me out of my comfort zone and believed in me like no other. I could tell you how her leaving shattered my life. I could also share with you how I take strength in everything she taught me. How her unconditional love will always be running through my veins. Her strength of character is within me, wherever I go. Her determination and love for life is part of me. All that she was and gave me; I will be eternally grateful. When I close my eyes and think of her…the sadness is replaced by a sense of pride and how fortunate I was to have her in my life. I celebrate and honour her. Her gift to me is priceless, her love, and support has and will carry me to the next chapters of my life. She is a true inspiration to me.
