You’ve simply got to read Dorcas Smucker’s article: Learning to live with differences a delight. I extracted both my title and the above quote from it.
Two more quotes from the Shoe Lady’s column:
“As a distinctly Mennonite woman in appearance, I don’t mind curiosity, but I dislike both reverence and mockery.”
“But sometimes there was simply no getting around the differences.”
“But I knew that, in reality, I couldn’t. Not at all.”
Three. You got a bonus.
Now, please read the article.
Oh, and Dorcas and Jenny and Dawnisha…? Thanks!
