Have you ever encountered a friendship or a relative that you simply don't understand how to relate to them? No matter how present you are and want to be; sometimes it feels like the two of you are missing the same vibrational beat.
I recently wrote an email to my aunt explaining to her a feeling that came over me while I was in the middle of preparing dinner for my family. I immediately and abruptly (as I always do when I write) removed myself from the kitchen and sat down to write her. What came out of me in the email was something that I felt needed to be said or else I would not have said it. It is amazing. No matter what the words display when we accept perceived challenges, love and forgiveness should be the motivators behind those words.
Then, I took a deep breath and let it go. When love calls, we must answer loudly, boldly and we must answer with sincere and compassionate love. In response, you receive love and most importantly we both radically forgive.
This was my aunt's final response: I love you... (I didn't actually know how to paste the animation in here but this smiley face opened up with the words... I love you).
My response to her: We are what we look for in others... I love you with my BIG heart (words spoken by my daughter, Ms. J.)
