|This is from her 90th birthday.|
What a cutie!
Janet: "Why didn't you take the job, Mom?"
Mom: "I didn't want to write for them, Janet. They had too many rules."
God bless her. Here's a poem from Mom that has been published in several magazines and in The Kansas City Star. She wrote it according to her own rules:
by Lillian Sokoloff
Too quick are we to criticize,
Too slow are we to praise,
The comings and the goings
Of other people's ways.
If only we would stop to think
Before the words come out,
Perhaps a nicer thought would come
For us to talk about.
So next time you are tempted
Unkind things you are about to say,
Stop, reflect, remember,
What you have read today.
