#SIDEBAR: Family first
This is a not so cheery post. I understand that I'm late to post today.
My grandfather is in the hospital in Los Angeles and that has been occupying my time today.
Like much of my family, he had his own struggles as a child.
He lost both of his parents before the age of 12 and had to be self reliant from an early age.
He has diabetes...but he's STRONG, and he's where I get my confidence from. He is the bond that keeps our family together and he gave me my name when I was born in Africa.
He spent a lot of time with us when we were younger and I'm grateful to have him be in my life.
P.S. For a little morning motivation, here's a thought provoking look at how success is through effort, and how you can apply it.
This is a perfect addition to the visionary Monday's video series. This is with John Legend and Sal Khan's, Khan Academy YouTube channel. Hope you enjoy it.
