At the funeral, the older of the daughters took the opportunity to share some memories of her mother. One particular story grabbed my attention:
"Mom always told us we were beautiful, smart and kind. She said that many would want to be our friends. She also said that there would be some that didn't like us...and that's okay."What a great lesson. What great parenting, empowering children to cope with the inevitable. And it's critical information not only for children, but for adults as well.
There will be people that don't like you...
and that's okay.
Do you agree? Disagree? What other lessons should be learned as children that perhaps don't show (but should) up as adults?
