Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Today I want to talk about the loss of a loved one, a person a miss a lot. I have lost people over the years, including my grandparents, my aunt, my uncles (aunts’ husbands). Last year I lost an uncle and grand uncle to COVID-19. However, the recent loss of a loved one has hit me hard. I am talking about my paternal uncle. My uncle was a freedom fighter in Bangladesh and have traveled to over 27 countries during the 70s. He was the strongest and toughest person I have ever met.
Moreover, I have to credit him 120%, for making sure that I never come near smoking. Five years ago my uncle was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and then three years ago with liposarcoma. He had a major 16 hours surgery, and another few days later and recovered. Not long after his surgery, he pulled himself together, faster than anyone I know, and he started doing his long drive, which he loved so much.
My uncle moved three thousand miles away when the pandemic started and that was the last time I saw him. My friends, my uncle passed away on Valentine’s day with lung failure. He went to the hospital with shortness of breath and ended up on a ventilator and within two weeks he was gone. I miss him so much. I didn’t even get a chance to even say goodbye. My friends what the pandemic taught us and the loss of my uncle re-iterated that tomorrow is not given for anyone. Please don’t wait for tomorrow, hug your loved ones today, express your gratitude now. Live in the moment, live for now. I miss my uncle but he has lived every day as if it was his last and for that I am grateful.
Today, I want to tribute the man who was full of life and never let anything get in his way of living his life. He was strong and brave. He is my uncle. I miss your voice. Thank you for being my uncle and we will meet again soon. I love you and miss you.

CAUSES CLOSE TO MY HEART
PLEASE DONATE DIRECTLY TO THE ORGANIZATIONS THROUGH MY FUNDRAISING LINKS:
I consider myself fortunate to have good health, a full-time job, and a roof over my head. However, there are still so many people who are struggling to put food on their tables. Please join me to help those who are struggling. If you have good health, full-time jobs, and a roof over your head, please join me to help those who are struggling. Whether you donate $5 or $500, you will make a huge difference in someone’s life.
America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to my gofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
PLEASE DONATE ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring content to you.
