Like most people, I have found my parents to have gotten “smarter” along with my own age and ultimately as my adult life experiences increased.
Amazing how that works, huh?
When your parents drop knowledge on you it is often well ahead of when you need or truly understand it.
Here’s one from our late mother, Vi Burnett.
I was in my middle forties when she laid this one on me and am now just truly appreciating what she said more fully because I have used it recently — but I can’t claim it as my own original thought:
“You can’t blame other people for your adult life not being what you want it to be, not even your parents. No, I guess you can but it’s not rational.”— Vi Burnett, 1924-2012, BurnettFamilyUS.org
Christopher and Terri (Anderson) Burnett established their branch of The Burnett Family in March of 1979 at Copenhagen, Denmark. They are professional musicians based in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area.
