"Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear" George Orwell
That was pretty much my mom's motto.
Growing up in Minnesota where the weather could change in a flash, if
it was a nice day we headed to the lake to swim. Mom always said, “The
dust will wait.”
Some of the neighbor ladies were just the opposite. Clean, clean,
clean. As a result, it was my mom who taught most the neighbor kids to
swim. What do you think these “kids” remembered when they grew up –
their mom's clean house or my mom teaching them to swim?
One of my childhood friends just passed away. He always said my mom
taught him so much that he, in turn, taught his kids, who are, no doubt,
teaching their kids.
Yep – the dust can wait!!
I’m stealing this…
