One Antique Photo of my Grandparents Proves they Risked Everything for Lasting Love
This photograph of my grandparents makes my heart flutter.
They were not supposed to fall in love; my grandmama was disowned from her family for abandoning her pre-arranged groom-to be.
She lost everything to come to a country where everyone hated her and the way she looked.
But instead of being bitter, she taught my mother (who then taught me and my siblings) to embrace every culture and just love people. It’s so much easier that way, simple even.
Even though she has been gone for years, my grandaddy still lights up at the mention of her name.
Their love is inspiring in so many ways. ~shared by @leahhofff
