Thank You Me
Card of the Day
Here is an interesting thought to ponder…
What if parents are the way they are because of their children?
“NO! That cannot be! I protest”, you might think in your head, saying once again, “no way” and rolling your eyes, thinking “you silly Grandmommy, to suggest I’m responsible; I am a kid.”
Aw, come on everyone, it is a fun tool, to use on our road to success, of giving and receiving the sacred kiss of bliss.
How could Grandmommy have come here today, to write these words and feel her love is as big as a heart made in the sky, if her grandchildren had not come along, and nestled right into her Grandmommy arms and changed her for the better?
It all goes together, two by two, our children are here to teach us and that is what they do. They mold and change our lives the minute they arrive. Parents bring them into the world with the intention of giving them only happiness, expecting the children in return, to do the same “happiness giving” to Mom and Dad.
Now whether you are young or old, there is a child inside of you. An excellent way to help that child feel good, and your little one getting ready for bed, is to use the tools of forgiveness to help stop the chatter in your brain, automatic and unconsciously repetitively, blaming your parent for “what they did” to you.
Oh my, it seems to Grandmommy that forgiveness will not only stop the conversation in your mind but open your heart. Practice this: Put your arms around yourself and give yourself a big hug, and say “Thank you me, I don’t want any other family”. That is what my grandchild did when she was only three. While bathing she asked her sweetest of mommies, how did she come to be? Her mommy gave her a good reply that took a little bit of time, so while lovingly toweling this precious child dry, in all her three year old just bathed nakedness, hugged herself and said, “Thank you me, I don’t want any other family.”
Here is another “Faerie Grandmommy thought” to wonder and ponder before bed; that you were searching for your family, while swinging from star to star. Now that is lot of fun to suggest to your little one, that they were looking for you. And you can wrap your arms around each other and repeat those precious words my grandchild said. “Thank you me, I don’t want any other family.”
But once we take responsibility for everything that happens in our life, we become free to love our family. Everyone is doing the best they can and often the tools are not on hand, like perfecting the use of a most important tool named “non hurting”.
Family is also, all of us together, one big bunch, millions getting closer to trillions. We must really start practicing diligently, consistently and persistently with our tiny little families with the non hurting tool, so that happiness will spread around the world, like icing on a warm cake.
