cultural tradition has an extremely huge meaning to me due to the fact that one of my grandfathers had passed away 5 years prior to that day and was looking forward to dancing with both of my lovely grandfathers who have been there for me and my adored family. May 5, 2017. The day has come. I can’t wait to surprise my family and friends with the father-and-daughter dance that my father and I have choreographed. The moment that I’ve been waiting for had finally come. I was about to dance with my chambelanes which were my annoying yet incredible brothers, but the certain part that I was waiting for was dancing with my grandfather. As I was, I cried tears of joy because I felt a presence (I am superstitious but nothing has ever happened to me), but it was not an ordinary feeling. That presence made me know that my grandfather was there with me that day. He made sure to remind me that he was always there and will always be there and in that moment, I hugged my grandfather extra tight for the fact being that life isn’t guaranteed every second of every day. God has given me the privilege to have a wonderful family that has supported me and loved me in everything that I do. That precious moment made my whole day wonderful and memorable. That is why this tradition has more meaning to me than most girls.
