Yesterday I overheard a conversation on a topic I had not thought about in ages. I really did not need to think about this particular topic anymore since I had a definite opinion already and....well...case closed. Anyway, one of the guys brought up a point that had never ever entered my mind before and just like that, my mind was changed. Maybe sometimes, we really aren't petty or prejudice or any such negative thing. Maybe someone just has to use the vernacular that our brain is in tune with.
My three kids are not calling me very much these days. I remember when I was their age and not wanting to talk to Mother that much because basically I did not want to hear her crap. She had opinions on every damn thing. Of course now I know that Mother was going thru the different stages of her life just like I was. Part of me wants to tell the kids about this and to explain that we are all growing but on the other hand.....I kind of like them not calling so much so I don't have to listen to their crap.
