Who’s Your Personal #people’schoice Award Going To?
January 10, 2014
My household watched the People’s Choice Awards two nights ago. We actually enjoyed the fun, nonformalized version of the awards ceremony. What I didn’t know or understand until I checked the Internet after the awards was that there were many more categories not presented. But the only categories that were presented on the show were ones that a substantial amount of people voted for. So, even some major categories such as “Best Actor in a Dramatic Television Show” didn’t even make it to the screen, which I thought was very interesting.
My mother commented after watching, “See, these are all shows I watch and are my favorites! Now, you’ll listen to me when I say a show is good!”
I retorted to my partner quietly, “If you look up the word narcissist, her name will be beside it!” We laughed evilly.
“That’s it, go ahead and laugh,” she said, “and talk about me. But I’m correct!”
Allen said, “LaVerne, it’s just an honor to be in your presence!”
She bowed… Oh, my dear mother so wanted to be honored that night, she made up her own category: Best Mother in a Quiet Home Drama!
I wonder how many people in our lives need our approval? Because of their anxious need, we tend to dismiss them. But what if just a small pat on the back or “I truly appreciate you” could make the difference between feeling loved or taken advantage of? Would you be able to give an authentic nod to that person? I would say, do it and see what happens.
We all have personal choices for people who excel in making our lives better. I have many in that category, but only one will shine brightest. I think all of them deserve a nod, my mother included. She tries her best to be a loving and supportive parent. She always, always honors my gay lifestyle and never condemns me for my choices. For that, I’d say she’s a very good representation of a parent. So, thank you, Mom.
But, alas, my personal choice for person of the year in my life is my precious Allen. He is steadfast, securely attached, loving, and funny 95% of the time. In those other times, he doesn’t bring his personal issues to the table for me to fumble over. He shares, but doesn’t make me responsible. For that, I think he has exceeded every expectation I have had about relationship, thus far, in my life. Congratulations, Allen Staley, for being the best partner a man can ask for!
