LESSONS MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME

Today marks the 32nd year of my Mother’s passing.

I’ve lived longer without my Mother than with my Mother.

But her memory still lives on.

She may not be with me here in person but her words of wisdom, her style and her inspiration will be with me forever.

Through example I learned:

The Lessons My Mother Taught Me:

Buy the best you can afford and use it

Always look your best. 

(Hence buy the best you can afford.)

It’s a sin to use the word H. A. T. E. 

Never use the word H. A. T. E.

Be kind.

Be gracious.

Don’t be wasteful.

(Hence buy the best you can afford, use it and buy no more.)

Make a tidy house look effortless. 

Take pride in your work.

Always think before you speak.  Saying less shows greater wisdom.

Stay active.

Keep smiling.

Find your spiritual self.

Love your family. 

But the number 1 lesson my Mother taught me was,

Life’s too short to be unhappy. 

LIFE SHOULD BE HAPPY!
