HOW TO BE GRACIOUS
Joanne's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement, not even her parent's nasty divorce.
Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear, and would be the best-dressed mother-of-the-bride ever! A week later, Joanne was horrified to learn that her father's new, young wife had bought the exact same dress as her mother!
Joanne asked her father's new young wife to exchange it, but she refused.
"Absolutely not! I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I'm wearing it," she replied.
Joanne told her mother, who graciously said, "Never mind sweetheart. I'll get another dress. After all, it's your special day."
A few days later, they went shopping, and they did find another gorgeous dress for her mother. When they stopped for lunch, Joanne asked her mother, "Aren't you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it."
Her mother replied, "Oh, I'll find somewhere special to wear it."
She wore it to the rehearsal dinner, the night BEFORE the wedding!
