A Mother's Rant: Pass on a nugget of knowledge

Pass on a nugget of knowledge

As a mother I'm sure that I have passed on many nuggets of knowledge. The one that comes to mind most recently was a year ago when I visited Jeanette and helped her to make a skirt with her new sewing machine.It was a fun bonding time for Jeanette and I, and she felt very accomplished.
The trip to see Jeanette was the first time I had ever driven to Salt Lake by myself. I spent two or three days at the Family History Library. I would love to go back and spend a week or two at the library.
Jeanette and I also went to the Lion House for lunch one day. After we ate lunch we went out of the lunch area and there were these stairs. They didn't have a rope or a sign saying we couldn't go there so we went up the stairs. It was cool, with the old fireplaces and mantles and antiques everywhere. There was an old piano and Jeanette was about to plunk on a few keys when I said, "Don't, I'm not sure we are suppose to be here without an escort". A few minutes later we were heading down a hall to see another room when this woman comes out of a closed door. She said, "May I help you?". We said we were just looking around. She informed us that this was NOT open to the public and we could tour the house next door. We didn't feel bad, after all nobody had told us that we couldn't, and there was no sign or anything. It was fun.
Love to you all.

You pass on nuggets all the time! And I appreciate them. Well, most of the time. ;)
Next time you're here, I'll ask your advice on another project so you can pass on more nuggets. How does that sound?
