The holiday party from the year before was filled with love, memories, and special moments he cherished. It was both heartbreaking and uplifting.
In the midst of it all, I was determined to keep Nae Nae's Naturals running, even if it meant putting it on autopilot while focusing on my family during Terrence's illness.
Our customers love for our products and brand helped us endure, and I can't thank y'all enough for that.
As I look back, I realize that strength isn't just about enduring challenges; it's about finding the courage to share our vulnerabilities too. For months, I put my own health concerns aside, wearing a brave face to support my family, community, and employees.
It's what black women often do – carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders, protecting and nurturing those around us.
But here's the thing – I'm sharing this with you because I want to be real, to let you know that it's okay to have moments of struggle and vulnerability.
And as we move forward, I'll share how we weathered those storms, and how we continue to do so.
Stay tuned for the next email, where I'll reveal how we bounce back and strive to be stronger than before.
