Growing up, my family called me “Edison”.
When I made up my mind, NO ONE was able to change it.
Except, my late maternal grandmother. She was the original ” Tiger Lady” … we had a love/hate relationship. She always challenged me with one question, “Have you tried it?” ( which meant, I don’t want to hear excuses, just do it!)
Tonight, my daughter made a comment that reminded me of what I used to say to my grandma. This was her comment: ” Mommy, I tried it…and now I can tell you, I don’t like it!”
Grandma, I love you, I miss you … You challenged me so much but, you made who I am today! Thank You! XOXO
