This quote reminds me of a story about my brother. My brother's Dad had passed away and he saved his money and bought a salt and pepper shaker for Mom for Christmas. He was so proud and happy to be able to give her a gift. She proceeded to chew him out for doing such a thing and was ungrateful for the deed. He is 60 yrs old and it has never been forgotten....forgiven but not forgotten.
