Aunt Norie’s sewing room
One cold, wintry morning just the other day as I ducked in and out of the post office, I got a comment (sorry I didn’t get your name, dear): “Oh, hi. Hey, I just really enjoy your column — especially the recent one on children. I like what you said and how you said it.” She continued: “I think in our world today many times they just get left out. They so need to be included in conversations, in issues.”
In today's world, they miss that from generation to generation far too many times, those handed-down traditions, etc.
The dear lady put it all in a nutshell when she ended our conversation as we rushed back out into that cold, cold wind. She said, “The world better wake up. All too soon those very youngsters will be our leaders.”
Where are we, the world, rushing off so very, very fast anyway? Children don’t have time to eat a decent lunch, no one has time to be courteous. They don’t even drive their cars as they used to. They just get in that vehicle and — as one sign I read in a truck stop one day said —AIM IT DOWN THE HIGHWAY.
And I for one don’t intend to cut my “Merry Christmas” to “Happy Holidays.” After all, Christmas is the most special birthday ever.
Gotta go now. Bye and God bless everyone.
