Ok, it is true. My wife and I watch The Golden Girls almost every night. Now, while I don't really appreciate the ideals that the characters portray, I have to say the lesson that are taught are relevant even more know than when they were first created.
Lesson #1) No matter what happens stick with those you are close to and love. This is repeated over and over. They might be fighting all the time, but they ALWAYS support each other.
Lesson #2) The elderly are a generation that is to be valued and cherished. Nothing is more refreshing than having a elderly person tell you "what's up". I always smile. I know they are simply trying to share the values they are holding tight too.
Lesson #3) If you want to appear smart hang out with dumb people and if you want to be good looking, hand out with "ugly" people. Not something that I would want to promote with my children however. I have heard these saying a lot. I don't buy it, but that is the lesson.
Lesson #4) Teaching is a valued profession. I appreciate as a teacher, that Dorothy, as a substitute teacher, struggles with the day to day running of a classroom. It is interesting to watch.
Lesson #5) Life can be fun and bubbly. I think this lesson is great one. I have a need to be reminded of this frequently. Those ladies are always smiling and enjoying each others company.
So that is my thought for tonight.
