I was always the Apple of her eyes. She has taught me how to love unconditionally, yet to be tough when needed. How to raise a child single handedly. Always taken the first hit of every odd on me, believing in me when nobody did. Assuring me that I am not defined by my dark color, but it's the thought that counts. Sitting beside me through those sleepless exam nights, telling me that I Can! Thank you Grandma .
