Unfair, was an unvoiced thought when I first learned about compromise. Mom had no one but me

and my grandfather to help her with the little brothers that kept arriving almost every year and I wanted to do other things after school beside help...but eventually I learned empathy as well as

admiration for my mom and her strengths...and yes, I did learn the value of compromise and when it was NOT a viable venue for me...the lessons of learning to compromise have served me well throughout my life. :-)

Your grandmother introduced me early to the word "compromise"....Love you mucho, Nina
