Words my mother told me...

I always try so hard to remember all those things she said, maybe I was talking when I should have been listening? Actually dad had a lot of memorable things he would say too but, in honor of Mother's Day can we play nice and share? Lol

"It never hurts to ask." ;)

Happy Mother's Day!

Where to start...

"If you know that a person isn't right for you, and you would not marry them, quit dating them. Let yourself and them get on with life, it is only right."

"Take care of yourself and your family, don't buy or even look at non necessities. The more time and money you spend on these things the less time you have with those who truly matter. Live simply and happily with what God supplies you."

good post by the way.

My mom would wake us up in

My mom would wake us up in the morning by scratching our backs while we laid there pretending we were still asleep so she wouldn't stop. Then she would say "wake up girls today is the first day of the rest of your life" Somehow that always motivated us to get up and start the day!!

words of my mom

...don't drink too much(when I lived in Italy where wine is really good and cheap).

My mom was an

awesome lady and I miss her. When I was a kid and would wake up from a nap cranky she would try to make me laugh, if that didn't work she would say "knock it off."

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

if all your friends jumped off a bridge......

thanks Mom, look where i am posting now.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

"Everything In Moderation", ...

... my mother would admonish. Words I must've taken to heart since I have been known to engage in, at least to a moderate extent, even excess.

Thanks, Mom, for your moderate counsel in tolerance and exhuberance.

Word: "Celebrate!"

My mother showed me how to be married. She and my dad were team mates, best friends, and played like children until he died. She then became a very sad little woman. Most of us kids had some sense of Dad's presence shortly after he died, she did not. She actually had an extra pain in her grieving - he dropped dead at her feet of a heart attack, and her thought was "He did not even say 'Goodbye.'"

About ten years after his death, she finally had a dream that she felt was him coming to her. His message: "Celebrate!"

It fits almost any situation. Staring down a bear and know you are about to die? Time to celebrate your life.

Bonus round: The joke my prim and proper heard from my even more prim and proper grandmother...
Do you know what a housewife is?

It is a handy gadget you screw on the bed and it does all the work...

Have a happy day, dear vessels of life.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

How poignant Paul4won, that was really touching.

My mother never passed a penny in the street, she would always pick it up and put it in her shoe for good luck. When she took her shoes off at night pennies would fall out.
"A penny saved is a penny earned" she would laugh.
I always think of her when I find them.

I wish I could contribute

But the words my Mother had for me cannot be posted due to the DP guidelines.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

My mother could get a point across

without saying any ;p

A good post---

I will have to think about this to come up with the best one. Happy Mother's Day to my friends.

As a kid, I was constantly

As a kid, I was constantly beating myself up about my school work - "Will I fail this test?" or "Did I forget the assignment?" were thoughts always rattling through my brain for some reason. My parents had 7 kids, and a couple of those kids didn't worry one lick about school. My mom had an amazing ability to look into each of her children and know how best to deal with their individual needs.

Once when I was suffering another bout of worry, she stopped me from this torture by grabbing my attention with this exchange:

Mom: "Michael, did you study for the test?"
Me: "Yes"

Mom:"And is all this worry helping you pass the test?"
Me: "No"

Mom: "So don't worry son. I know you study hard. Even if you fail this test, I will know you did your best. I'll be proud of you."
Me: "But I don't want to fail the test."

Mom: "I know, and that's why I'm already proud of you."

To a kid, this was sweet release from childish anxiety.

I miss my mom.

Worrying will get you nowhere ;)

I miss my mom too. Thanks for sharing.
