Value Your Beauty with Dove & Family Dollar: Coupon + Contest
When I think of inspiring women in my life, there’s always one that makes me smile. She is unique, funny, and always reminds me how important it is to BE YOURSELF. Let me introduce you to my grandmother, who is lovingly called “Obachan.” Pronounced Oh-ba-chan, my grandmother named herself after the Japanese phrase for “Nana” because “Grandma make me sound OLD!”
Obachan is originally from Japan. She met my grandfather during World War II in Japan. There they met, fell in love and came home with my grandfather to settle in New York. Obachan left her heritage, everything and everyone she knew to follow her heart. She had to learn English, American customs and basically start her life over again. Talk about the strength of true love! After 4 kids, over 50 years of marriage and now at the beautiful and young age of “80-something” (I know she would NEVER want me to tell everyone her real age! “Telling woman’s age is rude!”), my Obachan still talks in broken English, has a sharp mind and a quick tongue, and reminds me everyday that beauty is more than one’s appearances. My Obachan’s true beauty comes from her heart. A heart for following one’s dreams, true love and the strength to make a new life.
