Happy Fourth Of July. It is the eve before my big album release party. I'm so excited to finally get to celebrate the release of my record. After waiting all month, it is now time for me to be around my loved ones and have this moment to share with them. I never really celebrate Fourth of July, but since i'm in the city that is home to California's state capital, I might as well. This weekend is usually a hard time for me and my family. My grandma passed away on July 5th, 2011. It is already 2014, but we still feel the emptiness of our missing piece. I wish she was here for my release. I know she is in spirit. I had her with me in my heart the whole time I was working on the record. While the music may be my guide, she was my guide as well. Every time the pretty fire works go off, I think of the night that before she passed away. I remember everyone watching the fireworks and hoping for the better. She died the next day and our lives were forever altered. Now that i'm going through a lot with my health, I can't help but wonder what she is thinking about up there. I will probably sing a song for her tomorrow, we'll see how I feel. I have to honor her in some way. I know I do... I miss you grandma. I wish you were here in person, but I know you will still be in the front row always. No one will ever fill the void of your missing piece.
