My Grandmother's Vela

I am still in mourning. I am working through unexpected feelings and shock. But I believe that “from hard lessons you find purpose, and from purpose you create.” This is my journey back to healing and it isn’t the first. This time I will use my experience and let my words create a room where we can relate. I plan to write as I work through these feelings and get in touch with myself again so that I can #inspire. It is my favorite thing to humbly do. This is part of a Series in devotion to my grandmother, my roots, and my desire to expand culture and minds. This is a brief explanation of a vela/novena, a ritual done after one passes. One that I felt has help.
