Finally back on tumblr! Time to pick up this challenge again.
A period of time in my life where things were not so good… hmm. Well, I’d have to say it was when my grandfather died. That was a really rough time for myself, as well as the rest of my family. I’m not going to get into it too much because I’ve already written about my grandfather’s death, so I’m going to keep this concise.
Losing my grandfather was really hard for me because it was difficult for me to bear the fact that one of the strongest men I’ve ever had the privilege of having in my life had fallen. After his death, my family basically went on a mad scramble trying to figure things out in terms of who was going to take care of my grandmother. And amidst all of this, my grandmother had gone into shock, constantly asking us where her husband was and who had killed him. It broke our heart every time, telling her that he was gone, but eventually we learned to divert from the topic to lead her into a more happy state of mind. Finally, she moved to Vietnam to live with my uncle and that was that. The usual weekend family gatherings stopped and my family started drifting apart from each other.
In a nutshell, that’s pretty much what happened.
