For the past week and a half we have had a wonderful nightly routine. I make sure all my sewing is done..the dishes are done, the little one is in bed and then my two older boys and I watch a movie. Not just any movie....but North and South. I absolutely fell in love with this series the very first time that I saw it, and I am sooo happy to say that my boys love it just as much as me!
has any of you ever watched this? If there were ever a time that I loved it was the Old South. (let me start off by saying I am totally against the slavery that went on) the dresses and the balls, but most of all the Honor! Gentlemen were bred to BE gentlemen. They had honor and dignity. They fought for what they believed in, and heaven forbid if you insulted them or their families. Do you remember the duels fought over women's honor?
What a time. Now-a-days its hard to find many with honor. People are rude and selfish and just plain gossipy. The whole notion of a "gentleman" has gone out the window. Just yesterday I was flipped off by an OLDER man in his car. All while I had 3 kids in mine. Nice, nice to know that respect is still out there. This is the same person who will then complain about the "younger generation not having any respect" I miss the old days. When people went to church, when they had empathy and compassion and when most of all the men had RESPECT for women. As a mother of 3 boys I hope to instill manners in them.
Not just the "please and thank you's" but real manners. Like..ALWAYS hold the door for a lady, NEVER disparage a women's character, ALWAYS be attentive to her needs and thoughts and ideas, work HARD and SUPPORT your family, ALWAYS be true to your word, but most of all......live with Honor and Dignity!
