In Response to Re: What character or personality traits do you find intolerable?:
Now that I have responded to the many wonderful comments. What do I find intolerable...Deceit, when people do not tell the truth and you know that they are lying. My Dad, had a great way of teaching us to be truthful and it works. When I was a child, he used to say that if I told the truth, I wouldn't be punished and he stood by this as well as when he made a promise he kept it. Never promise something that you may not be able to keep. I miss him every day.

Angela, my Dad had the same philosophy. And I also miss my Dad and my Mom. I sort of get into a bit of a "funk" around my birthday in February. I always wonder if they would like the person I became. They never knew me as an adult. I often wonder what it would be like to have an adult relationship with my parents. Then again I don't have the heart ache of watching them age and become dependant on someone else. Life is one big trade off.
