Mother’s Day (part 2)

9 05 2009

From the book, In the 1940’s, Page 96

I handed Mother the pretty wrapped gift and told her  ‘Happy Mother’s Day’.  I was so proud to give that gift to my Mother for her Mother’s Day.

I had never made my own money for a gift before.  Mother just looked at me with her mouth open.  I guess I really surprised her.  In fact, I think she was in shock.

It was a very nice Mother’s Day that year.

It is very easy to  make an issue of discrimination.  Anyone can do it.  And these days, a lot of people do.  Claiming discrimination on any issue is nothing more than a cry for attention.  It goes back to that adage that the wheel that squeaks the loudest gets the oil.    It is the person who feels left out who is going to claim  discrimination.  But why bother.  Not everyone CAN be included in everything.  Not everyone WANTS to be included in everything.  There are different paths through life for each one of us.  Each person has to find the spot where he fits in best. That is where he will be happiest.  Really has nothing to do with discrimination.  Our happiness actually depends upon each of us finding our own niche.  There is where we will also find our heart.    Who needs to make a squeak over that.
