Donna, If the world could just grasp what you wrote about, we would be living in a much safer place. We seem to always be angry at someone or fighting with someone about the things that make us different (religion especially). When you recognize a difference in someone why is it perceived as a threat?

I love the lessons that you are teaching your daughter about tolerance and differences. They are to be held up and celebrated, not condemmed and hidden. Especially in the context of a family. We are all enriched by each others differences.

Donna,

I enjoyed reading your blog today. I can relate to you as my husband is a Brit also. Our families sound similar to yours except I am mostly Irish/English and other stuff. My side of the family would air our dirty laundry for the world to hear while my husband's family would ignore the elephant in the middle of the living room. We have had our difficulties harmonizing but mostly I find it a plus that we are fairly opposite. We seem to balance the craziness.

I absolutely love that acceptance of people's differences is so widespread now. At least in my head it is. My husband and I are so different, yet so similar and we complement eachother so well. I'll never forget going to the wake of a 27 year old woman and seeing all of her friends and family laughing and half drunk. When I told my coworkers to stop being so obnoxious my friend turned to me and said "Oh, you've never been to an Irish wake before. You Italians are always throwing yourselves on the casket. This is normal". And so it was. Incidentally, my husband wants a beer and steak party for his wake. And I want people to throw themselves at the casket and yell "why God, why?"
