A-to-Z 2015 I is for Intolerance

Intolerance, was about the only that Grandma was intolerant of.  She was always very open and accepting of everyone. It didn’t matter what color they were or what language they spoke, Grandma always opened her house and her heart to them. Her attitude and open heart helped me to more accepting of those with differences. It doesn’t matter what color someone is or what language they speak or whether they can walk. What matters is that they are a person and you accept them as a person. That is what Grandma had to say about intolerance.

    Grandmas are supposed to be tolerant, (at least when it comes to her grandchildren), intolerant with her own kids. Being as I will never be a grandmother – I can only say, that I think I am usually tolerant of quite a bit, but find just recently that I am extremely intolerant of ingratitude, illnatured, impudent, incompetent idiots – did I get enough of my i’s across?

      Thanks for dropping by and sharing your thoughts. True we all judge people’s character by watching what they say and do and then forming opinions. I like to think that there are good people everywhere. 🙂 Sounds like your dad had a good head on his shoulders.
