I received this cross from a good friend and fellow youth server, Kate, as a Christmas present. This Christmas was quite sad for me as I just found out that my grandma’s cousin, Chari, died yesterday. We used to visit her every week and she was very close to us. And right before Christmas Eve, I learned that a high school friend also died today. This cross was a reminder of HOPE. It gives me the strength to know that they are in a better place now. For this Christmas, nothing else is on my wish list but for my grandma to stay healthy and keep hope in her heart. Her memory is deteriorating and her sight is gone. But she was one strong lady, I keep this cross near my heart to always remind me that hope is present.
