Thinking about Grams

Hey folks! I would like to introduce you to Dorothy.  Some people called her Dot but I called her Grams.  There is too much to say about her in a blog but I felt like talking about her today and so.. 

I knew her all of my young life into my early adulthood.  She passed away 11 years ago but she is always around.  I think we are who we are by genetics and by environment combined but what we achieve may be more about those who know us better than ourselves.  Of course everyone is different but in my case I always had an interesting supporting cast.   I have had the luck and blessing to have people who believed in me when I didn’t know to believe in myself.   My grandmother was one of those people.   She always told me that she believed in me, even when I was at my worst.  She taught me the value of strong trust relationships long before there was a book by Stephen M.R. Covey.    

She always told me that I have the potential to do anything.  To be a good person, you have to understand the differences between right and wrong.   You have to do what you say and keep your promises.   So… I hope to live up to her expectations and I am committed to doing my best to be a good person.  To do what I say I am going to do, to say what I mean and to value people and build trust and maintain that trust and help people where I can.   Thank you Grams!
