My mother used to say this all the time. I have no idea what she wanted me to learn from the saying, but today I was thinking about it when writing on this site. It occurred to me that people are here for many different reasons and instead swimming against the tide, perhaps I should learn to live with whatever “shakes their rattle”. Tolerance is a skill that perhaps I struggle with, and maybe that is the greater lesson here for me. There are one or two people who actually read the words.
Maybe some of these things shake your rattle.
