Greatness defined - my grandma

Posted on May 29, 2017 at 12:45 AM Comments comments (1)

This weekend one of the TV stations here in the U.S. is having a Harry Potter Weekend.  It made me think about J.K. Rowling giving an interview of how Harry Potter came about.  That of course made me think about all these people talking about how great she is.  That made me think about what we think is greatness in a person.

Most of us think of someone as great who is a celelbrity.  That could be the case.  There are many celebrities one could think of who fits that bill.  But I automatically went to someone none of you know (unless of course you're related to me!)  I went immediately to my grandmother.

Growing up I was close to my grandparents, Jennie and Beano.  I would hang out with them on all my school breaks.  My sister would stay with my parents but I would always get to stay with Grandma and Grandpa.  I even lived with them while I was going to the local community college.

So why did I think of my grandmother when I was thinking of greatness?  She wasn't famous.  She didn't do anything out of the ordinary.  So what was it about her that makes me think she's great?  She cared about me and she gave me her time.  

You know thise people who you can call whenever?  She was that person.  She had an 8:00am Saturday morning call with me each week.  She never told me that she was too busy to talk.  Maybe once in a while she'd have to go to finish cooking something but most of the time we'd be on the phone for over an hour just hanging out.  She didn't ever get on the phone and say 'Kimmy, I don't feel like talking."  She never made me feel like I was bothering her.  She always made me feel like she was waiting for me to call and wanted to spend time with me.

She would teach me how to cook and always delghted when I would cook for her. Even now, I LOVE making her meatballs.  I still don't make them as good she did but I love knowing it's something she taught me how to make.

We would sit and watch game shows together every evening.  She loved Price is Right during the day and Wheel of Fortune at night.  She was great at Wheel! One of my earliest memories is watcing To Tell the Truth with her while my grandfather was out bowling.  We would sit and watch together and talk about the prizes people won and which ones we liked best. 

So why did I write about my grandmother today?  Just because in my eyes she's great.  She came  to my mind today and I felt like sharing her with the rest of the world today.

Who comes to mind when you think of a great person in your life?

When You Need to Let Go

Posted on November 15, 2016 at 11:40 PM Comments comments (1)

Something happened to me recently that you may have also experienced.  Recently I had a falling out with a friend. I’m still shocked by this as I didn’t see it coming AT ALL!

I have gone through a myriad of emotions: shock, hurt, sadness, disappointment, and anger and yet still love. I really don’t know what happened. One moment we were laughing and having a good time, the next moment I was being told she never wanted to do anything with me again.

I’ve tried to extend an olive branch. I’ve tried to keep the lines of communication open but each time, I feel like my outstretched hand is being slapped. So I have decided to leave it open. I will not go back and try again. This is really foreign for me as I am a peace-maker. I HATE conflict. I want love, peace and Kumbaya moments.

What I realize though is that sometimes when you care deeply for someone you need to let them go through things and experience their journey on their own. For some reason this is one of those times when I am being shown by the Universe to back off. I cannot make this right. I cannot ‘fix’ whatever is going on. My friend needs time to heal from whatever is going on, and apparently my being around is like pouring salt on that wound. So I will move away from it.

Moving away from the situation doesn’t mean that I will not continue to send love to the situation though. I will send love to my friend and will also continue to Ho’oponopono the situation.

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. Very simply it’s the belief that everything is energy so all energy can be affected by love and forgiveness. So for whatever is going on, this Ho'oponopono phrase can help: I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

So, if you ever find yourself in a similar situation, try giving space and Ho’oponopono the situation.
