As previously mentioned, I got two new tattoos, both of which were inspired by my sister. When she passed away suddenly in 2007, I promised myself I would keep memories of her burning strong and keep her alive through thoughts and prayers. Despite my shortcomings in the past, I feel this certainly makes up for it.
The first is two stargazing lilies on the inside of my left wrist to represent my sister and I. Stargazing lilies are my favorite flowers, and it was hers as well. The second is the word, "fearless," on the inside of my right bicep. I say this in all humility and in complete absence of arrogance.
There have been countless tests and blessings in my life, some of the most intense of which have helped me emerge triumphantly against alluring temptation and negativity, especially during the last two years. But regardless of all the personal ramifications, it has in no way hindered my faith. Instead, it has strengthened and solidified it. Thank you to those who have been there to help me through it all, and thank you to the ones who have left me. You've made me prove to myself that I can do this on my own.
