How to be a gracious.....

Here is a joke...
Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement-not even her parents' 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, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new, young wife had bought the exact same dress as her mother's.
Jennifer asked her father' s wife to exchange it, but she refused. "Absolutely not! look like a million bucks in this dress and I'm wearing it," she replied.
Jennifer 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 did find another gorgeous dress for her mother.
When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, "aren't you going to return he other dress? You really don't have another occasion to where you could wear it."
Her mother smiled an replied. "of course I do dear...I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night BEFORE the wedding."
