I had an interesting experience last night. It had nothing to do with my grandchildren. The experience was with my 86 year-old mother who lives 2,000 miles away. However, the experience could also be experienced with anyone, even grandchildren who live far away.
As I was browsing through the TV channels last night. I came across the Utah Jazz and Orlando Magic basketball game. My mother loves watching the Jazz play. Since she doesn't hear well, she watches the game on mute. I don't think she misses a game ever. So I watched the game too. Knowing that my mother was watching the same thing at the same time, helped me in an odd way feel close to her.
I thought, "You know I might ought to do something like that more often with others." I would image if two or more people chose to do the exact same thing at the same time and thought about each other, it would help them feel closer to each other.
It probably is not an original idea, but it sounds like something worth trying. Try it and feel free to write me about it by leaving a comment or email me and I will post your experience on this Blog.
