The wisdom of Erma Bombeck

Growing up, I fondly recall the visits by Erma Bombeck on ABC’s Good Morning America. Her sense of humor, Midwestern in origin, was welcomed in our house. Her musings were always spot-on and more often than not brought about an audible chuckle from those of us in the room watching the TV. Her columns (and, later, books) were always insightful, funny and entertaining. Good writing to be sure.

I stumbled upon the following quote while surfing the Net this morning. It’s so true.

There’s nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.
