My husband (then boyfriend), Jason, pointed out to me after one of our afternoon visits with my Nonno over espresso a few years ago, how my grandfather claimed: It’s Beautiful.
See, my Grandfather continued the trade lineage of our family and was a shoemaker his whole life. He used his hands, mind, and creative abilities to take on the family business when my family moved to America from Sicily in the 1920s.
As a retired shoemaker, he took on making stained glass pieces. These pieces adorned his home and the homes of all his children, grandchildren and even the local bankers.
At one point, he was showing Jason and I a new piece he had created, and he simply said:
And it really was. And leave it to my then 95 year old grandfather to remind me that:
1. Beauty is in everything.
2. It’s a good thing to notice that what you create is beautiful.
3. Share your vision of beauty with others.
Today, I am remembering my grandfather because a little over a year ago he passed away. He has been coming into my dreams and my husband’s dreams lately.
His spirit forever lives inside me, and his lessons unfold daily. I am forever grateful to him and my other ancestors that really have put the idea into my genetics that anything is possible.
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
