I am thinking about something that really "gets my goat" as my grandmother used to say. I wonder what makes some people in this world think it is o.k. to say things in front of a child that should not be talked about with anyone (let alone thought of in the first place) much less uttered in front of a child. To be in polite society (or what should be polite society should I say) and say things like "I don't know why their parents did not just teach them to marry someone who is white is beyond me." I am blown away by this!!!! First of all....many of the people I love most are of different races!!! Foremost my sweet Love Bug is half Latina so this makes me really upset. My very best friend is native american/hawaiian......she is like family so again this grates my nerves. I am learning through my Esther study that meanness comes from a perceived threat. Why are you threatened by someone you haven't even bothered to get to know? What is scary about the color of their skin or their ethnic background? I guess I will never understand how people can hold something against another person like the color of the skin! Sometimes the things others do makes me really sad!!!!
Counting my blessings:
That I know and love many people who are nothing like me
Those people have enriched and brightened my life
